Have you noticed issues in your village, in your community, or in your country that you wished someone could solve for you? Great! You can do more than take notice. With our 30-Day-Challenge program we will show you how you can turn those issues into opportunities to improve yourself and your community by taking positive and proactive steps. This new workshop is created to provide all participants with the insights and tools to transform ideas into viable social projects or social businesses.
