META Award

Nov 29, 2022

I was so honoured to be selected from thousands of applications worldwide, to be part of the 2022-23 META community programme.

My community and I were in the top 2-3% of communities globally.

This was and still is a huge acknowledgement of the work we all do to help our community and we continue to make the most of the opportunities this acolade offered in order to help more people.

A Purpose: The community and its leadership has a clear purpose and vision.

Capacity: A team that has the capacity to create initiatives that activate and benefit their members.

Leadership: The leader(s) of the community have leadership experience, including managing teams, projects and volunteers.

Commitment: A team that is committed to engage fully in each stage of the program.
