Last week nine social enterprises came together for a four-day retreat in Kenya. Since Echoing Green Fellows spend most of their time deep in the trenches of operational execution, this was a great chance to step back, reflect and recharge. Sanergy reports back.
Echoing Green's Fellows are always pushing deep, sustainable social change. Here are some of thier recent news and accolades:
2009 EG Fellow Dhruv Lakra (pictured above) received the CNN-IBN Young Indian Leader Award. Lakra's organization, Mirakle Couriers, employs deaf people giving them a chance to increase their livelihood and making them more economically independent.
Building community. That is one of the big take-aways from this year’s New Fellows Retreat.
