Working with a team based in these regions allows her to connect with local institutions quickly providing real time information on what is happening on the ground.
Working with a local network reduces the need to travel, is more sustainable and creates long lasting partnerships
Driven by a desire to do more in the countries in which I mobilise students to and from, the concept of connecting students, academia and social enterprises came about. Essentially, wherever we set up university partnerships, I seek to connect with, and understand social enterprises in that country and the work they are doing.
By connecting universities and social enterprises, the aim is to provide students and academia with a truly global, holistic experience through their university’s global partnerships.
To give structure to global communities of social enterprises and universities is to build awareness, connection, broaden students experience and give a voice to local social enterprises.
To encourage ourselves, how else and what else can we do in that country together for mutual, sustainable advantage.
