Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
I am a 26 year old Motswana woman who is really passionate about helping the less privilaged children. I am currently working as a Youth Officer in a rural area which services very remote areas which are dominated by illiterate people. I graduated with a Bachelor of Social Work from the University Of Bobtswana in 2008. Having been raised up in a less privilaged family, i got to understand what lacking really means and i often feel it is unfair to let others suffer when there is so much other people are having and yet not ready to share. Let us work together to help those in need so that this world can become a better place for us all. Helping others to improve their lives is helpling yourself because in the end they would not be burden you. Team spirit!!!

My Passions:
Sharing with others for spiritual upliftment.

My Vision for the Future:
To see every woman vocally empowered, able to economically stand for themselves and significantly contributing to the less privilaged.

My Areas of Expertise:
Counselling, youth development
