Wow! The agenda was a 2 day Peter Block Seminar where leaders from the youth zones were to be trained in community building, facilitation and teamwork.
The outcome was 3 days of bliss where 14 strangers became close friends. Representatives from Upington, Umzimkhulu, Mutare, Manica and Siyabuswa added life and wisdom to the seminar.
I trust that all the participants will write about their experiences on the pages of their respective sites, but as the team reflected on what they learned around the dinner table last night, one could see that genuine connection happened. In two days learning occured, hearts were transformed and all these new friends will return to their homes with renewed passion and new skills that will help them to serve their communities more effectively.
