As one of the platforms of Gawad Kalinga, a Philippine based movement which aims to end the poverty of Filipinos by first restoring their dignity, Free Birds creates models and implements technologies that a) empower Filipino farmers, b) sustainably and organically raise chickens, and c) enable small scale farms to scale exponentially. The French social entrepreneur, Louis Faure, was so taken in with the culture and lifestyle within the farm that he decided to extend his stay in the Philippines indefinitely. Living in the country for two years exposed him to the social and economic problems rampant in the Philippines. As a result, he took it upon himself to solve these problems not because he just simply wants to, but because he feels that he has a duty to help others - a duty that goes beyond himself. He decided to leave his own family and personal life in France because he was driven by purpose and meaning in life.
