WHAT OTHERS SAY

The kanthari leadership training course is an everlasting experience for me. Since I graduated from kanthari, I continued putting what I have learned in to practice in many ways. It shaped my project, helped me to overcome crisis, expanded my networks, enabled me to develop fundraising and management strategies. Overall it helped me a lot in regards to my personal and professional growth, always directing me to a right path and making me stronger every day!

The kanthari training is a goldmine! There is no better place to learn how to become a Social Entrepreneur. When I got to kanthari in 2012, my project was scattered here and there but through the transformation concepts and many other sessions, I was able to transform my project and ideas into a Social Enterprise that would make meaningful impact. I realized my potential during the course, learned about the importance of collaborating with your beneficiaries and creatively solve problems. The experience gave me wings to fly with my dream and today, kanthari made me an agent of change all the time, everywhere!”
