This is most certainly a journey. As the saying goes “A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”. With an overall vision of co creating empowerment opportunities with our individual, community and organizational partners, the NDSG team has been working tirelessly (Actually we get very tired sometimes!) since 2001 to build social entrepreneurial responses to community challenges by including all key stakeholders in both the design and implementation. We have always aspired to be generous in time and spirit, humble in approach, empathetic in relationships, and entrepreneurial in execution.
Over the course of this journey we are confident that we have gained truly unique expertise and believe the evidence proves this. This has been and continues to be a learning journey. The quote that we love that best demonstrates the value add we bring to the table is this. “Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit, wisdom is knowing not to put it in fruit salad.” How does one get from knowledge to wisdom? Experience. Experience and Experience. This has been and continues to be the outcome of our journey.
