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.

The recent Echoing Green Fellowship regional retreat in South Africa was game-changing. We went in with the intention of building community, showcasing innovation and developing infrastructure to support social entrepreneurs in Africa. What actually happened was so much more.

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.
