It was a sun-soaked week on June 19, 2023, at the “City of Lakes” when REDF hosted 150 inspiring Social Entrepreneurs at the Partner Retreat.
One of the highlights was when Maria Kim shared the beautiful story behind her name and celebrated the amazing social enterprise leaders in the room. “Separately, we are rivers, but together, we’re the world’s biggest lake!”
Let’s take a moment to envision the world we all aspire to see, where every person is cherished, and the days of “othering” are long gone.
Gratitude fills my heart for the connections made within this incredible community. The activities were not just fun but a meaningful way to exchange knowledge and support each other.
Shoutout to Team “Purple Rain” for their boundless creativity and unwavering spirit. Site visits to employment social enterprises always left us in awe! And let’s not forget the powerful experience at the George Floyd Global Memorial – a reminder that together, we can strive for racial justice and equity.
In the spirit of Ubuntu, let’s continue to make the impossible possible
