The Dragonflies Everywhere journey started serendipitously; Over a casual lunch when the founder of a new project in East Africa shared his dream of creating hope for the youth in his slums through video storytelling. The conversation resulted in an unexpected high value resource donation that helped the project get started and lo presto, an idea was born.
We saw an opportunity; To build a bridge between two disparate worlds – one with individuals and communities who enjoy privilege in various forms and the other, the underserved communities at the grassroots that are vastly impacted by the social, political, economic and ecological problems of the world.
We saw an opportunity to build a culture of collaboration to power impactful social change and value creation by bringing these two worlds together, by creating a movement that transcends manmade barriers and allow people from different communities and societies to come together, as equals, to build a better world.
The world we envision
A compassionate, more egalitarian world of shared humanity, collaboration and value creation;
A world where change is driven through the creation of meaning and social value by a network of individual and dragonfly swarms from silos of privilege who will actively collaborate with social change projects at the grassroots.
- Leadership: We commit to leading by action in actualizing our vision.
- Collaboration : We believe in the magic of transformation that happens when likeminded people from diverse backgrounds decide to work together as equals to achieve common goals.
- Excellence: What we do, we will do it right and we will do it well.
- Integrity: We will be real. We will be honest. We will be responsible. We will be transparent. We will act with fairness, in good faith, with awareness of the consequences of our actions and decisions.
- Optimism: The Dragonflies are an optimistic lot, choosing to enthusiastically plan and work with positive expectations and a solutions oriented mindset despite the challenges that may come our way.
