Echoing Green identifies tomorrows transformational leaders today by identifying and empowering early-career social entrepreneurs who have developed bold ideas for positively transforming some of the worlds most challenging issues. Echoing Green supports its fellows with networking opportunities, leadership development, seed-funding throughout their fellowship.
When we asked Delphine how she feels about being named an Echoing Green Fellow, this is what she had to say
It is indeed a unique opportunity to have been selected as 2019 Echoing Green Fellow. I am excited about the fellowship. I am looking forward to engaging, sharing and learning with fellows not just in my cohort but the entire Echoing Green Community. I truly believe that in this community, I have found my home and my tribe. I will like to use this medium to thank all those who supported me, my team, family, mentors and friends, all of this would not have been possible without your support.
