VOF WEEK 4 "( Even I Have a Vision !)"
VOF WEEK 4 ( TITLE)
Whoa! Do I have a vision for my life I wonder, well I think I do and I hope this will sound like a vision.
Ever since I was able to articulate issues as a young girl of age 11 years old, I still remember very clearly how I used to wonder why every child did not have the opportunity that I had at that time. An opportunity to go to school, to put on clean cloths and eat a balanced diet, eat in a clean environment and many more needs. One early morning I just thought of sharing my concern to my friends, I told them that we really need to help our fellow children who are denied of a better life at least which were privileged to have as children. As a group of little adolescents we decided to start by contributing what ever little money we were giving by our parents for school or sweets to help these poor children. one of my friends told her mum of an initiative that we came up with, her mum called us as a group and told us to stop what ever we were doing, as the world was cruel, she continued to tell us how the parents of those kids will feel, they might you have bad intentions and you consider them as been not responsible parents. Since we as children were required to obey the words of the elders we had to stop. Although I wasn’t impressed, I just had to obey, but the thoughts of these kids never disappeared from me and I told my self as I grow up to found a way of helping these kids. Am glad to say I always try by all means to assistance disadvanged children in whatever way I can. I have also realized that that these disadvantaged children are not alone but are often looked after disadvanged mothers who are not empowered and abused or widowed. Hence my personal vision is combined with my community vision which is to contribute/ advocate for the welfare of women and children who are disadvanged of the right to a better life in society, I would like to own a business, buy a big farm, build an orphanage, school and build a skills education center for disadvantaged women . The vision I have for the world at large is to see to it that women and children are treated with honor and dignity and that they live a health life.
