After 4 inspiring days at my final session of the Facebook Community Leadership Program, I found myself taking this picture of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco.
The scale of the structure was a reminder of the enormity of the task we set ourselves when we first imagined an organisation that could connect language teachers who wanted to help, with refugees who needed support, to learn English.
Just 18 months later here we are doing just that and playing a role in rebuilding peoples’ lives. I’m so humbled and excited to be part of an active, diverse and global community of support, sharing the vision and making it real.
Together there’s so much we can do. You are all amazing! Through the support of this program, I’ve met awe-inspiring people from across the globe all working for social change and gained many valuable skills.
