Light in Our Home Provides Mentorship & Leadership


Light in Our Home project leaders are helping to coordinate a new Global Grassroots training program in conscious social change and social entrepreneurship for venture team members who were not originally elected by their teams to attend the first Academy for Conscious Change.  Further, project leader Monique Mukakageli, serves on Global Grassroots' Rwandan Advisory Council, which reviewed our entire program, goals, evaluation process and curriculum this year providing valuable recommendations for our efficiency and impact.  Monique, who serves on her local women's council and works as a headmistress of a local school ran for Parliament in the last election.  We salute Light in Our Home's team members for their leadership and mentorship!
