It Takes a Village: How Community is the Antidote to Despair
In her early twenties Sara was on the edge of death. She began her healing journey when she learned about how women in Rwanda had survived the Genocide of 1994 and it offered her hope that anything was possible. In this inspirational presentation, Sara touches on issues like post-traumatic growth, resiliency, recovery, social entrepreneurship and the importance of community. You will glean lessons from Rwanda, where Sara once lived and continues to stay connected through her purpose-driven work, as the founder of Africa Healing Exchange and 3 Mountains Beverage. Her talk uncovers the connection between suicide, addiction and a sense of isolation, and offers insight into how we can stop the cycle in our own families. The ultimate conclusion is learning about the empowering business models that Sara is creating in partnership with the women who once saved her life 20 years ago and she invites the audience to travel with her to explore the Healing Garden firsthand.
