I also enrolled on the second course Social Enterprise: Turning Ideas into Action.
Lesson 3.11, all participants were asked to submit a video about their social enterprise and enter the International Social Innovation Challenge 2016.
I was awarded third place and would like to congratulate Palma Milicevic and Emma Butler who were awarded 1st and second places. Thank you to all the candidates who entered and voted for me.
Many thanks to Dr Sara Calvo, Jeremy Wade and all the other mentors.
Best wishes to everyone with their social enterprises.

On a cold snowy Friday morning during March 2013, I travelled to Haworth with my sister Irem and my beloved mother to visit my Fair Trade Heroine Rita Verity of Sonia's Smiles.
Rita is a well known celebrity in the beautiful village of Haworth, home to the Bronte sisters.
Haworth was declared the first Fair trade Village in the World, 2002.
Sonia’s Smile was inspired by a photograph of a Peruvian girl with a wonderful smile taken in 1992 when she was about 8 years old, the shop was opened in 2001.
Rita met Sonia, during 2005 when making a successful visit to twin Haworth with Machu Picchu Pueblo.
I would like to introduce you to another leading fairtrade pioneer and champion of the fairtrade movement of the United Kingdom, Ms Christina Longden.
Christina is a humanitarian, an accomplished author and Director (Fundraising/Information) at The Lorna Young Foundation.
