Today we had a stakeholder meeting at the Novalis Ubuntu Institute, an educational non-profit organization which encompasses a holistic approach which recognizes and nurtures individual gifts and talents. Many individuals came to the group with their own talents and specialties, from artists, to likeminded friends, to representatives for underprivileged or minority groups, to service organization representatives, to associates for social entrepreneurship to small business development.
My outtake on the meeting was very positive. There were several leads and contacts shared for the development of the Aspire Youth program. With some luck, we can further our outreach in both education and in disadvantaged communities.
We continued with sharing a lunch with Aspire Youth partners. We had a mixture of partners supporting Siyakula Direct Sales, which markets upcycled clothing and sim cards, to PACE (Parking Area Cleaning Exercise), to those who assist with Kwelanga Solar, our two tier solar energy program.
