Leaving on a Jet Plane

I have been working to start a new project called the Masisukume Sakhe Project (isiZulu for "get up and build something"). The project will kick start in early 2012 but before we can do that we need a team. These six people are traveling to Nova Scotia in Canada to study Asset Based Community Driven (ABCD) development and Livelihoods and Markets development for two months at Saint Xavier's University. It was a long process to pick these folks. I love them all dearly and am so honored to work with them next year. Derek and I went with them to the airport in Johannesburg to see them off - seeing them so excited made me super excited!
