The New Heroes tells the dramatic stories of 14 daring people from all corners of the globe who, against all odds, are successfully alleviating poverty and illness, combating unemployment and violence, and bringing education, light, opportunity and freedom to poor and marginalized people around the world.

Also known as "social entrepreneurs," they develop innovations that bring life-changing tools and resources to people desperate for viable solutions. What is possible? You'd be surprised. Take a journey into a world where people take action to make a big difference.

The series begins its global exploration of social entrepreneurs with a look at those who are helping the desperate, the destitute and the determined to make a new beginning - from Moses Zulu's home and school for AIDS orphans in Zambia to Mimi Silbert's San Francisco-based Delancey Street foundation, which helps drug addicts, criminals and the homeless turn their lives around. This episode also travels to India to follow Kailash Satyarthi on a harrowing slave camp raid, where seconds might make the difference between life and death. "It is not possible to change a society without starting from the bottom, from the villages and communities," says Satyarthi, as he explains his plan to eradicate slavery in India through a nationwide network of child-friendly villages and a line of carpets that are made without forced labor or child slavery.
