Community Outreach

I AM BECAUSE WE ARE

In the Ubuntu spirit ("I am because we are"), we aim to have 1/3 of our participants fully sponsoredThey are generally people from the community who would benefit from the exposure to such an event and would not have had the means to attend otherwise. In our inaugural event we sponsored abused women, youth gang leaders undergoing values training, aspiring yoga teachers from the townships and university students from disadvantaged backgrounds. They mingled with all including big CEOs and country leaders and we did not put any spotlight on them so they could feel fully part of the whole. No one could actually tell who was who.

Reaching beyond all corners of the world, including those that are the most effected to be a part of this conversation, Tounché is an event that speaks to human beings on all levels of diversity. It is an invitation to join and be in the presence of people who are doing the work of SACRED LEADERSHIP and empowerment all across the globe. From different cultures, socio-economic and professional backgrounds, in different ways through all different mediums, it is truly a global gathering. Tounché is founded on the intention of building a bridge and filling the gap of separation that can be utterly present for us as humans in this delicate and trying time, especially at events such as this.
— Swaady Martin, Founder of Tounché
