Our impacts are measured by the mindset change we are creating and by the number of people who effect change in their communities as a result of the tools and skills we provide them.
It’s not the number of businesses that have been started that determines the impacts we’re having. Nor is the indicator of impact the number of ventures that have been helped to become sustainable and successful.
It is the quality of the impact that ultimately creates changemakers and drives significant change.
