One of our key values at Nurture Change is to share knowledge to create better people – it's why we bring in industry leaders and inspiring individuals to share their tips, tools and best practice ways of increasing their performance. We felt it was extremely important to find an organisation that shares similar values and works hard with helping the less fortunate in the Fijian community we are visiting, so we’ve partnered with Spirit of Sharing.
Spirit of Sharing is a fantastic foundation committed to empowering youth through sports equipment, resources and education. Over the past ten years, Spirit of Sharing has donated over $3,000,000 to the Pacific region including Fiji, Vanuatu, Samoa, Tonga and PNG.
At our 2015 Nurture Change retreat, we raised over $21,000 for the foundation and we're excited to contribute in 2016 and beyond.
