The Caravanserai Project Alumni Events: Over the last 3 years, Caravanserai Project has developed a growing network of inspiring and innovative mission-driven leaders who are continuously striving to identify and implement solutions to challenges curbing their communities’ wellbeing. Our goal is not only to provide individual support to these change makers, but to connect them and bring them together so they learn from each other’s experiences and share resources, but also continue to develop partnerships and collaborations.
