How has the MCN Fellowship made a difference in your organization?

MCN has provided our organization with the tools to make their organization sustainable and to help form an institutional memory which allows for a organized and well thought out approach to future projects based on past critiques and assessments. They have also provided the organization with instruction on things vital to the success of any new organization such as creating budgets, networking, and looking for future opportunities for growth.

There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy.
Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
