Letter of Appreciation – many thanks, dear Sabine
A few months back I met Sabine Balve through a mutual friend from Zambia, I thought she was like any other women friends on facebook. After some time, I realized that she was a woman God had chosen to change my life. Ever since I started communication, I have been inspired with her enthusiasm, leadership skills, passion and charisma to change the world especially slum communities in Uganda.
Sabine Balve, World Leaders Forum Dubai has invested successful efforts in securing funds and grant moneys for use by Action For Fundamental Change and Development (AFFCAD) in our campaign to help children and families in the slums of Uganda and Africa.
I have faith that this strong relationship between AFFCAD and World Leaders Forum Dubai will make slums in Uganda better places to live as Our AFFCAD motto and my personal daily motivation, is " One Person can make a difference ! Together we shall bring social change, YES WE SHALL ! "
Sabine, you most certainly also demonstrate the power of such words through your own actions and commitment.
I, the others in AFFCAD, and the children and families of Uganda and Africa whom we are all working to help, thank you, dear Sabine for your ongoing support, leadership and heartfelt compassion.
Most sincerely from Uganda,
Kisirisa Executive Director of AFFCAD-Action For Fundamental Change and Development in Bwaise Kampala district Uganda and WLFDubai - Slum Earth Ambassador for Children in Uganda June 27, 2014

I have known Sabine Balve for 8 years now. I first meet Sabine when she first came to Dubai and was the CEO of BALVE Safes, from Munich, Germany. I am a Canadian artist and she approached me about doing unique safes with my specialty gold leafs paintings on the outside of them to make them an art piece instead of a safe.
I have found Sabine to be very creative and her mind is boundless in anything that she has approached and reliable in all her endeavors.
I highly recommend her in her new adventure of WORLD LEADERS FORUM DUBAI. Sabine is very passionate about her vision and mission to change global society and to make all world-citizen into change-makers for a peaceful planet with her new green global movement. Indeed I agree with her, we all should be CHANGE-Makers for a sustainable future for all and world peace!
Good Luck, Sabine, you have all my support!

Sabine Balve is a highly creative individual who is a pleasure to work with. She is a visionary figure with innovative ideas about how to transform global social society. As an inspirational business woman, Sabine consistently expands the vision and mission of her new objective of the WORLD LEADERS FORUM DUBAI. In this Forum Sabine Balve promotes green ideas, education and awareness pertaining to humanitarian causes and supporting sustainable activities. We collaborated daily for a number of months during the past year of 2012. This involved consistent exchanges about how we can all enhance and improve the challenges facing humankind and our world. In an amazing short time, Sabine successfully developed a combined worldwide community of more than 100.000 fans and friends on Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Pinterest and other international social media networks.

I have had the good fortune to know and work with Sabine over the last couple of years while she has been creating one of the world’s truly important gatherings; World Leaders Forum Dubai. As one of the original Canadian writers of the Sesame Street TV Show, and as a current collaborator with the legendary Jean-Michel Cousteau (son of famed underwater marine biologist/explorer Jacques Cousteau) on the children’s transmedia series “Ambassadors of the Environment”, I applaud Sabine’s fearless work to make a difference in our world. Having also worked one-on-one with many of the planet’s greatest creatives, such as Duke Ellington, Quincy Jones, Lena Horne, Pointer Sisters, Count Basie, and many others, I am able to recognize the best of the best when it comes to the creative spirit, and Sabine is one of those rare birds indeed. When Sabine heard about my transmedia project for children in collaboration with Jean-Michel Cousteau, she immediately offered to assist in making it a successful reality. Her energy is the kind which can move mountains, and whenever I need an example of positivity in our human tribe, Sabine’s name comes to my mind. It is easy to recommend this fine lady on so many levels, but the most important is her sense of honest commitment to the children of our planet and improving how we interact with our environment. I am proud to be given the opportunity to work with Sabine, and thrilled to be considered as her Earth Ambassador for the World Leaders Forum Dubai.

Sabine Balve is a visionary thinker and inspirational actor on the stage that encompasses social business, conservation and sustainable development. Since I've known her she has embarked on a sustainable leadership path culminating in her creation of the World Leaders Forum Dubai. This high level innovative event will catalyze world leadership to adopt sustainable development policy and develop heart for the Natural Economy in which we are all embedded and on which we all depend. If this is Sabine's current project, imagine the benefits she will create in the future. I urge everyone to attend WLFD or support Sabine in her quest for social-ecological improvement.

Sabine was the first person of significant international reputation, who 'followed 'and 'liked' my newly established Linked in group about vertical farming. This Linked in group has proven to be a very good step towards promoting Agrilution, the Association for Vertical Farming as well as supporting my desire to helping humankind and our planet.
The World leaders Forum Dubai (WLFD) under the leadership of Sabine as the tireless motor of all activities happening there - are now leading efforts to campaign NEW endeavors. This involves bringing selected supporters of World Leaders Forum Dubai into a NEW network group of Youth and Senior Earth Ambassadors. Sabine Balve and WLFD are developing the Earth Ambassadors Club E.V. in Munich Germany, with the help of interested WLFD supporters (myself and a group of students, young entrepreneurs and social media networkers) in a number of countries, and others are expected to begin developing in other cities and countries.
I am impressed by the heartfelt passion required to initiate and manage the World Leaders Forum Dubai Global campaign. I love the WLFDubai ideas and concepts about sustainability and world peace!
My commitment to Agrilution and informing the world about the values of Vertical Farming and the pressing need to deliver solutions to urgent global problems continues to grow. It is being projected that by the year 2050 some 9 billion people are expected to populate the planet. Food and sustainable social systems will be essential to maintain a well-fed population with such numbers. Agrilution the Association for Vertical Farming can help achieve such.
Sabine Balve is energetic, passionate and enthusiastic about making the world a better place for all! By starting WLFD she is reforming the world for the better. I appreciate her for what she has done and what she is doing.”

It is my honour to be able to work with Sabine Balve. I find her approach to global sustainable development both refreshing and practical. Her two priorities of sustainability and world peace ought to be the basis of daily front-page news around the world - but unfortunately they are not. Nonetheless Sabine’s visionary goals and influential networks are a great encouragement and we should all find inspiration in her work to leave the world a better place.

The work of the Buumbalambo Foundation for Children in Need, here in Lusaka, Zambi4 is being greatly aided by your successful fundraising efforts and ongoing guidance. It is with sincerity that I and others from the Buumbalambo Foundation express our appreciation for your influence and wisdom. The Buumbalambo Foundation for Children in Need is working to educate and assist children who are the most i,uhrerable and at risk. These are primarily orphans and single-parent children.
Preventing children lrom being entrapped into human slavery, reducing child prostitution and teenage pregnancy, child labor, child marriage and sexual abuse as well as advancing education and public safety within remote villages are all programmes which we are successfully undertaking.
As you know, our work has been recognized within many communities and organizations. This includes the 'African Achievers International Awards'. This Award recognizes individuals and organizations that make exceptional efforts to help advance social development and achieve the United Nations Millenniuni Development Goals. In addition the foundation won the prestigious Voice of Youth Africa Award which recognizes yourlg people in Africa making a diffbrence in their communities.
Madame Sabine, your securing of grant moneys, for use by the Buumbalambo Foundation in support of our efforts here in Zambia helps us continue to advance these Goals, and is welcomed by many. Knowing that you and others serving in leadership positions within World Leaders Forum Dubai have goals which are identical to those of us here rn Zambra, is heartwarming and helps inspire us all.
Thank you, for your ongoing support, leadership and heartfelt compassion.

"I wish to congratulate Sabine and her team at World Leaders Forum, a campaign that has already reached over 120 countries around the world. It is an enormous undertaking, but which I believe will have a global impact and will change the lives of women, children and communities across the globe.
Sabine is right and she is not the only one who believes that it is critical that world leaders should address the crisis faced by humanity in all walks of life. We are also part of the IF Campaign, which is also working to tackle the root causes of hunger and poverty; and to improve the health, education, and women and youth empowerment.
At the IF Campaign we are pleased that we were able to work closely with the British Prime Minister, David Cameron under his Presidency of the G8 to deliver our message to the G8 at their Summit held in Ireland on 17-18 June 2013, demanding policy change in regards to Aid, Tax Avoidance, Land Grabs and Transparency, which we believe highly contribute to the acceleration of world hunger. With a number of world personalities and celebrities such as Bill Gates, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and David Beckham, giving their voice and support to such Campaigns, indicates just how critical the issue of world hunger has become.
The objectives and goals of the World Leaders Forum and campaign are to contribute to the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) for the attainment of a sustainable world. This Campaign and future Forum will therefore be invaluable to global efforts in improving the quality of life for many communities around the world. I commend Sabine on her initiative behind the World Leaders Forum and I am honoured to collaborate with Sabine and be a part of this important community development initiative and life changing campaign, which aims to transform social society worldwide as one human family with one human responsibility for our planet.
It is our desire that through the efforts of the World Leaders Forum the world will be a better place for all humanity and all life beings on our planet. We are with your Sabine!"

I have had the pleasure of meeting Sabine through Linked in and her membership in the United Nations group. We've had numerous strategic discussions to help take her organization WLFD to the next steps. I am a strong proponent of her visions as they align with my own.

Sabine is a successful business woman and is serious about making the WLFD successful. Anyone with the expertise and determination to help alleviate the world conditions should be contacting Sabine in order to ask how they can help too.

The amazing work Sabine Balve is doing to create a better future for everyone has captured my imagination. I applaud Sabine for this magnificent effort and we are now collaborating to increase the awareness and make the World Leaders Global Forum the much anticipated successful event I know it will be.
Charity, Forum, Festival and Film Fest - this will be one of the most MEGA events imaginable, and I know Sabine will succeed as she is a visionary fighter. Sabine is a change maker for our global society with a creative mind. As we can see from her amazing designer work, she is able to think outside the box. We need free-thinking people with no limits like Sabine to create such global society changes.
My artist name is Yoyo and I am the creator of Yozique, Luxury Crystal Creations. I have much in common with Sabine Balve. Having excelled in many diversified fields, we both create very unique and exclusive luxury products. Our customers are amongst the most distinguished and wealthiest elite genre of society with a discerning appetite for the rarest and most exceptional worldly treasures. We have both exhibited at the most exclusive shows such as the Millionaire Fair Moscow and others. It is a fantastic idea to bring all Sabine’s worldwide networks into this global movement and forum – to contribute for a better future for all of us.
The message of Sabine’s sustainable movement overall is world peace and harmony which is a vision we share. In fact, the first Yozique work ever created is titled Harmony 1. It is a section taken from the much larger and very intricate original design titled World Harmony. A Harmony series of five sections from this World Harmony design is being produced, each masterwork having a different colour base.
As I believe in the greatness of this noble cause, I will be donating a percentage of each Yozique masterwork sold or commissioned as a result of my involvement with Sabine and the World Leaders Forum Dubai. The retail value of a Yozique masterwork starts at US$1.25 million. This will help facilitate the ongoing efforts of Sabine’s Foundation and help this humanitarian project make a substantial difference throughout the world.
Wouldn't this be wonderful – to leave a better future for our children and their children. Only through education can we change our way of thinking. Sabine has all our support here from Perth, Western Australia. Let’s unite the world as a global family!

I spent two wonderful hours chatting to Sabine about her incredible ideas to bring people of all ages, creeds, and diverse backgrounds together so that we change the world TOGETHER, and NOW. Sabine is an inspiration, and after just one Skype call enthused me immensely. The world is suffering NOW. Things need to change NOW. The land is sinking to a rising sea, there is pollution and warfare as far as the eyes can see, and we're all here watching it, when all we need to do is say STOP. This is the time to change, and move forwards. With radical new thinking, and collaboration across the globe, Sabine and the World Leaders Forum can bring people together like never before to change the world for the better.

I had interesting exchanges with Sabine for few months through the Social Media Platform "World Leaders Forum Dubai", which she created and led. The Platform provides excellent forum to discuss and develop ideas on sustainable green society and global challenges of the 21st century until they start meeting human expectation. The topics discussed on the platform correspond well to the developmental work of the Millennium Development Goals.
I am delighted to follow the development of the newly established framework. Sabine’s success in the Social Media was impressive and I appreciate her inspiration on the global topics. She is a visionary leader and I am sure her forum will bring new ideas. Sabine demonstrates excellent interpersonal skills. She is able to nicely deal with different cultures and interest groups. Her efforts demonstrate what determined individuals can do in support of global green movement.

Green economy, fair trade, sustainable food supplies, renewable energy and nature preservation are among the many goals which she strives for. Seldom have I met a lady of such persistent, unshaken resolve as Sabine Balve, in her pursuit of progress toward a better world. While her untiring efforts, to rally able thinkers and movers around joint global projects, are gradually bearing fruit, she is already busy planning for the next stage. Her determined, though highly engaging, truly cosmopolitan personality effectively bridges the often perceived gulf between East and West, encouraging the cultures and the faiths of the orient and the occident to throw their lots together and jointly work for a common cause.

I cannot forget the first time I saw Sabine; shiny lady standing in front of TV cameras being interviewed for her magnificent safes at INDEX. I could not resist the temptation created by her charming presence and humorous conversation with the TV correspondent s and I queued myself behind the journalists who were waiting for their chance to speak to her. It might be the safes which she was promoting are unique, yes they are, but now, after many years of knowing Sabine, I realized that it was not only the safes, but it was Sabine charisma, drive, loveliness and all of her queens like qualities which are unique and hard to find in a lady of modest and down to earth personality at the same time. Sabine becomes one of my customers at that event which I was promoting during INDEX and I was proud of having her presence as at Abu Dhabi International Motor Show. You might ask: why Sabine who is selling safes is present at the Motor Show? Let me answer you, Sabine is a star and she can shine anywhere.
Thanks Sabine for your support and inspiration. I will always treasure our friendship and business relationship.

As a gender economist I often look to people who have developed the capacity to view the world from the 30,000 foot level to ensure that the issues are clearly seen from the advantage of the surrounding territories and potential impacts. Ms. Balve has not only found the broader viewpoint but she has also focused on it and applied that highly developed viewpoint to bear on the issues being dealt with by our global societies - health, education, environment, gender equity, food security and peace. Her most amazing talent is to then bring the world players into the solutions and hold us all accountable.
Sabine Balve is just such a person and one of only a few women that I know that has undertaken such a major role of bringing world leaders together to not just talk about the global issues of our world but to help guide to define actions that individuals, nations, corporations and NGOs can,and must take to solve them. She is a driver of initiatives, ideas and leaders who can and does make significant impacts to social, political and economic stability in our world. I am honored to be included in her sphere of influence and appreciate her interest in growing gender neutral agendas to be inclusive of all.

Sabine Balve is an inspiring visionary leader and social entrepreneur. She brings focus, futuristic vision and extreme passion to her work - as she does what she loves and loves what she does. Once she is convinced about something; nothing is stopping her. Sabine is full of tremendous will power and determination, until she has achieved what she wanted to complete. She lifts up and encourage everyone around her to follow and support her while believing in her vision and mission to bring: light, hope and changes.
She drives to realize her visions and dreams. Having excellent networking skills she wins the hearts even of them who are against a cause. I am sure that she is a force to bring positive changes in the society. Sabine is demanding on perfection what she does, which brings a positive effect working as a team together. Great achievements are made together in a short period due to her extra-ordinary way she is performing – really a positive lifetime experience for all. In the same time she is very caring and very passionate to bring positive changes and hope to master the Global Challenges of the 21st century.
Sabine truly cares about different world cultures and is an open minded personality; tolerant to all religion she brings minds together. I am grateful to know her since many years and delight to support Sabine since early beginning of World Leaders Forum Dubai. Let’s make the world to a better place! Many thanks to Sabine and all fans and friends.

Dear Sabine, I would like to take the opportunity to express my gratitude and support for the recent confidence you and your organization has shown me in my appointment.
As you know I have been a supporter for a long time and have watched your influence grow and blossom into an awakening of the fundamental values that if we together harness correctly can set the stage for a completely self sustainable human race and prevent further misuse and abuse of the earths natural resources.
Firstly to achieve the goals and objectives of the WLFDubai mission it's essential that we have the right network of influential leaders that can make a difference by their standing and role model persona. I have looked on with excitement to see that you have managed and continue to manage to bring on board the caliber of leaders that you have. Congratulations and I look forward of working with them to realize the goals.
Technology today can be our leverage and it's up to the WLFDubai organization to set the stage, direct the show and participation and the eventual applause that comes with achievement.
Commercializations of the WLFDubai is essential to drive our ambitions and goals as without the necessary funds at our disposal we will forever be just a voice in the dark. We need to be able to lead from the front and not be pushing from the rear. Its also critical that we call to action real meaningful proactive efforts and undertaking to "set the stage for our show"

I known Sabine Balve since 2010 and our contact become more intensive through the Fukushima, Japan, disaster in March 2011. We have had many hours communicating through social media, where she has updated and educated us about the current situation of this disaster and the effect on environment, people and our planet earth.
We connected at that time in a tremendous work effort of more than 4.000 hours, worldwide with influential corporations, scientist and other user of social media platforms. Sabine is the interface of first hand collected news through her direct contacts in the nuclear, oil and other scientific industry and universities. The institute of Earthquake Research Centre in Tokyo, Japan, Sabine has 'translated' complicated scientific reports into understandable reports which have been shared though social media platforms and other communication tools.
Sabine became a frequent source on the latest news for myself, friends and supporters of World Leaders Forum Dubai. Everyone started to ask her, "Sabine, what can WE do, what should WE do and can WE do anything at all ?" So Sabine took on the challenge and started to search for solutions (not only for the nuclear disasters as well for other environment catastrophes). She is extremely committed and a hardworking business woman. Sabine is in contact with people in all time zones and puts efforts into connecting and the exchanging with people in more than 120 countries. These exchanges were the founding grounds for the global movement and network called: “World Leaders Forum Dubai”.
Sabine believes that every one of us can be an environmental ambassador which will be a synonym for all people who want to achieve tremendous efforts for society, environment and for our planet earth.
I am very glad to be part of her initial global movement as she is to me a true friend.
Thank you Sabine and we look forward for further great achievements through our community “World Leaders Forum Dubai”. What a Great Job! Thanks for everything,
