#Repost@wanderinggar Today is #givingtuesday ! If you didn’t know already, in February I will be volunteering in either Kenya, Ghana or Uganda for 3 months working with @balloon.ventures to support entrepreneurs in building their own sustainable business to lift themselves and others out of poverty. This is part of the International Citizen Service @ics_uk programme supported by U.K. government. I am currently fundraising for Balloon Ventures so that programmes like ICS can continue and give more young people the opportunity to go out into the world, make a difference and work to end poverty. It feels good to give, so please consider donating at www.justgiving.com/Gar-Man-ICS. Thank you! 😊 #volunteer

#Repost@gacoate Yesterday our events committee organised a networking event to give our current entrepreneurs a chance to meet previous entrepreneurs who have completed the @balloon.ventures programme. It was really inspiring to hear from the previous entrepreneurs how much of an impact the programme has had on them as individuals and on their businesses.🙌 #Kericho#Kenya#BalloonVentures#Entrepreneurship
