(POT) Plus One Talent

Our Slogan: Path to Self Discovery

Key words: Arts & Culture, Leadership, Change makers, Social Entrepreneurs, Tech4Change, Sports for Change, Self Mastery, Global citizenship and Diversity.

Background

At Wilsen Initiative (WI) we believe in collaborating with like minded people in change making to reach a common goal. There are many social enterprises with a lot of similarity that seeks to address the same issues, and for a great idea to stand and survive you need support of all kinds. It’s evident that apart from having a great idea you need a passionate team and resources which include funds to drive your project.

People with strong networks have always been able to reach their goals through a collaborative approach. POT (Plus One Talent) will foster an environment where change makers will collaborate and widen their reach and bargain for support while they encourage each others ideas to grow. Apart from talents, we have reserves of many other things that we can do, it is our responsibility to dig inside ourselves and find that extra hidden treasure for positive change.

The word POT also represents the cooking POT where in African cultures, it is used to cook food for the family. It is still in use in the modern times and we will use it to symbolize our roots of self discovery and ‘cooking’ of ideas.
