December 2018 Update

Team Maanch
December 21, 2018

Warm festive greetings from Team Maanch!

We’re delighted to share our last update of 2018 with our fast-growing community. It seems completely unfathomable that in 8 months, Maanch has grown from an idea to a buzzing team of 14. We have compiled this newsletter with all the energy that we hope to bring into 2019.

Endorsement from the President of Malta

–  We were exhilarated by the response of the President of Malta, H.E. Marie Louise Coleiro-Preca, following her keynote address at our event on 14th November. Her testimonial on our capacity to create real change through our work serves as an ongoing inspiration to our team.

Each and every one of us is to act boldly, to demand strategies of global social inclusion; to address the inequalities that continue to hinder our progress towards more inclusive and peace-affirming societies; and to focus on approaches for sustainable development, so as to ensure more resilient communities. I am confident that the Maanch platform has the potential to help in addressing these concerns.

–  We are pleased to share a video of the event, and how we hope to mobilise the community through 2019, here:

–  We are putting the finishing touches on the platform and will be going live for Receiver Onboarding beginning January.
