MINDSPACE is an organic social enterprise ofvaried international and national expertise assembled to focus on the research, development, and transformation of by for communities, communities, and communities through foundational and holistic community impact initiatives.
Holistic education is term well known amongst educators and institutions that aims to take a view of the whole student and aims to develop each student to their full potential. We believe that this, as important as it is, has developed a society that focuses primarily on the individual as opposed to the individual’s role in society.
There is a vast difference between educating individuals in a community and building a community in which to educate. As the old African saying goes “it takes a village to raise a child” and these rings true for our societies today. If we focus solely on educating a child without providing support for the child’s family, then our impact will only go so far. If we support a family without reaching out to their neighbours, then we cannot provide a platform to impact and transform an entire community.
Our dream is to see communities built in partnership with community. Families, individuals, institutions, organisations all have a role to play and a responsibility in supporting society’s development. Neighbour helping neighbour.
We encourage each of you to start this journey in your own community. Take a step back from your day today lives and just look at what is needed to be done around you. If you want help, give us a call. It will start with a simple decision to say… I WILL.
