Like me, I am sure that many of you have been glued to the reports of the attacks in London and Manchester and the responses from our government leadership which gets caught up with electioneering for our vote on Thursday.

Many of you may have watched the incredible concert in Manchester, an event which underlined the strength of community.

The development of communities who have their main value as love, rather than hate, is perhaps something that we can all do to develop a society that can make the world a better place.

Our vision for ELLA is to create a community that develops leaders, who eliminate hate and love their people and the work that they do – a community that creates other communities to develop these values and through them affects their beneficiaries and leads to fulfilling their dreams.
