Our children are our hope for the future and preparing them for what is to come ahead is crucial to their success. Schooling systems are not all that good at tackling the personal development, and therefore, more personal initiatives are needed to empower. The following story supports these words.
“I am a retiree and have worked in the past as a teacher, sales retailer and social worker. Life was very tough, especially after getting married. However, I do not want these strong ladies to fear the world they are going to face but become bold enough to bring about change in our society.
These young ladies are from an extremely impoverished. They might be going to school and are some are in 8th standard, but they still do not know how to read or write well. The standards of the school that they go to are below par.
This is why I spend an hour every day with these ladies preparing them for the world ahead. First on the agenda is school, followed by a spiritual talk about tackling various challenges and it ends with games and food.”
