I Really Believe Creative Courage & Compassionate Community Can Change the World
When I lived in Africa, I learned so many things about international development, sustainability and the harm helping in the wrong way can bring.
I also know the incredible pressure to raise the funding needed to keep our small family of 150 children and staff financially afloat in what was the 2nd most expensive place on earth while I was there. A one room mud hut with no bathroom could in some settings rent for $2000+ USD/month.
Most of our financial support came from the generous love gifts from people who followed our journey. But we lived on such a shoestring some days we had to opt for flip flops. (See what I did there?) I began to think there HAS to be a better way to do this.
There is. It is the place where creativity meets compassion and courage meets community. It is the place where creative advocacy joins community action. It is the place where authentic storytelling, intentional community building, and the pursuit of a greater purpose collides with integrity and social entrepreneurship. That is what Create 61, Inc. is all about.
