Growing a Change Maker - Invest in Leadership

Growing a Change Maker - Invest in Leadership

Personal message

I have a Vision - All People have a Voice and it is Heard, in a World that Works.

To fulfill on this I am stepping up in my leadership and stepping out of a South African context to connect with global leaders, having been accepted to go on the JDC Entwine "Inside Jewish Argentina & Uruguay 2017: LGBTQ+ Leadership Trip" taking place 22 - 29 October 2017. A first of it's kind programme, for 20 Jewish LGBTIQ+ leaders from around the world. (Update- looks like I am the African representative on this trip.)

On this journey I will gain an experience of what is currently happening in two of the most progressive Latin American countries and explore how communities are embracing diversity in both a Jewish sphere and taking on humanitarian issues, simultaneously partnering with others pioneering in their own countries.

I am inviting you to invest in me making this trip.

Why? Because a new kind of leadership is required for our world to work - people willing to dive in and dialogue, learn and express themselves freely, share and be contributed to by others.

What will I bring back? Fresh ideas, new insights and openings for action, new bridges built to connect to common conversations regardless of geography. I see openings for dialogue for all human beings - from the youth movements and in the education system at the high school age, family support for people dealing with sexual & gender identity issues, and even bringing a fresh approach to engagement with our seniors, to name a few.

Currently I am at work on initiatives in the Jewish, LGBTIQA+, street people communities; empowering leaders dealing with crime and violence on the Cape Flats. All of these spaces will benefit directly from my learnings and growth. 

I am a player, who has a Vision. Every player worth their salt, has a support team. Please be part of mine.

To invest...hit DONATE.

Share this within your communities and be my cheerleader - my mouthpiece with others.
