The New Recruits coming to PBS 6:15:2010

The New Recruits is a feature documentary about a battalion of jet-setting business students armed with a radical plan to end global poverty: charge poor people for goods and services. They spend one year struggling with startups to peddle drip irrigation in Pakistan, LED lights in India, and toilet service in Kenya.

The New Recruits takes an unflinching look at social entrepreneurship, a movement touted as the new alternative to charity—its ideals, practitioners, and realities. An unlikely cross between The Apprentice and Slumdog Millionaire, The New Recruits is a hilarious, evocative, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride along a road paved with good intentions.
