I am abundantly blessed.
I had the honour of being selected to attend the 6 month Social Entrepreneurship course aptly named FutureFit.
FutureFit is a social entrepreneurship joint venture between BoE Private Clients and the 3i’s Group.The objective of this cause-driven initiative is to enable entrepreneurs to generate and sustain new opportunities for social transformation.
What is a Social Entrepreneur?
Social entrepreneurs are individuals with innovative solutions to society’s most pressing social problems. They are ambitious and persistent, tackling major social issues and offering new ideas for wide-scale change.
My mind has officially been blown!
It was enlightening, uplifting and inspiring to be around so many people who dedicate their lives to social upliftment. I found strength through their empathy as I spoke of my journey to becoming a Social Entrepreneur.
It was amazing to listen to so many people speak their story and find that where I thought I was walking a very lonely path (or building one), there were so many others who echoed my sentiment, shared my trials, tribulations and triumphs.
My final thought of comfort: I belong.
I am now part of a group of people who “get me”.
No, I do not work for a “charity” (hearing that word is a pet peeve!).
I am a social entrepreneur, I work in youth development, upliftment and empowerment towards my vision of uplifting our Country.
And I’m getting better at it with each passing day as The Ntshulisa Foundation affects each child/youth that we work with…
Through Future Fit, I have learned so much about myself, my industry and been given tools to grow TNF.
Thank you Future Fit!
