VOF Week 4:("Vision is the art of seeing the invisible.")


My personal vision is to see empowered women for the development of Africa. When I said this word I have an experience I see in our country Ethiopia. When I give training in different organizations most of the time women’s are shy to participate in the class. Most of them are unable to write and read words. So I am always said I must to share some thing for them to be themselves. And always I am dreaming and planning how I empower them. But I said this words the number of women are greater than men. So I have a vision to support men also not only women’s. Most youths are living with out any income. When I think about that I feel sad. Youths have a power to do any thing but most of them are after school jobless. I want to prepare short term trainings to create jobs for their sustainable life.

Most of the time when we visioning some thing in our mind we must to boom to share for other. Shared visions have a power to be implemented practically. Others ideas can help to develop good and strong ideas and that will be a good way to strengthen our vision. So I need others advice, support and experiences. And if they have the willingness to work with me I am happy to welcomed them.
I need strong training to change my attitude in to a strong vision.
I need training and network out of my country. If I get a chance to study abroad I can develop another attitude differ from my country. am happy to share any thing what I have for the empowerment of others.
"Where you come from is not nearly as important as where you are going."

"When you set yourself on fire, people love to come and see you burn."

— John Wesley
Evangelist (eighteenth century)

I love your writing

Very positive and very moving. I agree with you when you say that the youth have power to do a lot, if only given the opportunities. The obstacle that many of the youth in developing countries is jobs, especially after college, high school, univeristies. You are an inspiration with you are aleady doing.

Someiuomes i think when things get worse in certain communities and coutries and the you start rebelling, its because they are the most angry with their situation and also becasue they have the least to lose. I therefore encourage you with your goals and vision and support you all the way.

your vision

In your writing, you convey your vision to use your voice to empower others to use their voice and to find a way to efficiently network to create positive change in the development of Africa, Ethiopia, and the women and youth in your immediate surroundings. There is a sentence you wrote that you "need strong training to change my attitude in to a strong vision." When I read through your writing the first time, I thought to myself, this women already has a strong vision. So I reread and I think I understand... the training to help you manifest your vision. Your words demonstrate that you are coming forth with very positive intentions and have a pro-active attitude to implement your vision. I will echo the comment before me and say that I encourage your goals and I realize it does take tremendous strength, patience and perseverence, and community. From what I have read, you have these tools ready at hand.
