"People want to do good"

Opt4Unity, described as an “uncommon table” of nonprofit leaders, business executives, and philanthropists who can tackle big problems like youth unemployment in the Middle East, agricultural development in Africa, and religious and cultural divisions, is a new project with funding from the family of Saudi Princess Ameerah Al-Taweel.

 She says that   "she wants to use philanthropy to bridge cultural divides and prevent violence like the recent attacks on U.S. embassies sparked by an anti-Islam video," according to a report written during the October Bill Clinton annual philanthropy summit in New York City.

“People want to do good, and that will continue whether you have a dictator or a democratic government,” she says.
