Where do you get your inspiration?

It is brought to me by a ten-year old girl in the village when she continues to hand me her English book and asks me to teach her. As her mother makes rotis she sits and reads by candle-light or fading lamp light with unwavering patience, commitment and persistence.

It comes through in the light in the 15-year old girl’s eyes as they beam with a confidence that exceeds anything I could possibly dream of in the way she speaks of freedom with strength in her voice, unafraid of being heard.

I find it in the seven-year-old feminist girl I met on the train. Though at first I thought her constant chatter was a symptom of insecurity, I soon realized she had so much bubbling within her, she couldn’t help but let it out.

If it is important to you, there is no choice but to persist.

We just have to open our eyes

We just have to open our eyes wide enough to realize how much is going on around us.

Way forward

Thank you Lakitalki,
Change comes when we change our approach and direction. If we keep silent and station in one place nothing will change around us. It is time to move forward, one step at a time.



I believe everybody has the potential to live a better life. Given the Opportunity, Education and Motivation ANYONE can become someone admirable. Nobody is a NOBODY, everybody is SOMEBODY.

Thank you Lakitalki,

Thank you. At a young age you have learnt how to look into the mirror of life and let others reflect your wisdom back to you. Lots of loving from Monica in France

I wish you 'Nangamso', that is: May you continue to do the good work which you do so well.
