I hope that experiences in my life; a lifetime of study into personal development; communication skills and emotional awareness can allow me to help and give back.
If you would like to help in some way or know more, please contact me at email@example.com
MY PURPOSE IN DOING THIS?
I have been lucky enough for so many years to have travelled the world gaining experience in all sorts of cultures and relationships as mentioned in my biography. Now I feel it is time to give back my knowledge and learnings, perhaps a little wisdom too, for those who may not afford such training or education, possibly those who need it the most!
WHY? Because I Can!
WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?
For NGO’s:- I can help you present to a group/committee better, improve staff confidence and motivation, which in turn will improve awareness and understanding to potential donors.
For schools:- I can help students with their interpersonal skills and their understanding of the concept of emotional intelligence, help them deal with anxiety around exams, and offer career support and guidance.
HOW CAN I DO THIS?
Through presentations and a variety of workshops, as well as one-on-one sessions, I will bring out the best in your students, your staff, even YOURSELF. I will share my knowledge and expertise, pieces of training, and experience and give positive direction for improved confidence, motivation, and success.
You had someone with the experience I have in your team for just an hour, a week, or on a regular basis, giving valuable insight and training to your students or your teams?
Your students were more confident and less anxious which improved their grades?
LSM are pleased to support the following:-
The Fleischer Foundation
The Fleischer Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit incorporated both in The United States of America and The Republic of Kenya. It was established by Mr. Stephen A. Fleischer, who saw first-hand that most children from the slums of Nairobi do not have the financial resources to ever access higher education. The Foundation is beginning to break this cycle of poverty with the children of the Mukuru Kwa Njenga slum, one of the worst slums in Nairobi, with daily wages of less than $2 USD.
The foundation provides 100% high school and university scholarships to children selected as having the potential to reap the rewards from such an opportunity. In addition, the students attend mentorship workshops led by academic counsellors, motivational speakers, and therapists. They are also paired with successful local and international mentors. This exposure allows the children to develop life skills and further their personal growth.
The foundation has also embarked on a project to build a high school of its own. The project has already broken ground and when complete, will provide a state-of-the-art educational facility to the same students from the Mukuru Kwa Njenga slum in Nairobi.
We are so proud to share this short film with you, and we are so proud of Shiprah, one of our sponsored students, for having the courage to share this particularly difficult time in her life. This film, we hope, will give you a glimpse of what it is like to live in a place like the Mukuru slum and some of the challenges that occur on a daily basis. But more importantly, we hope it shows you the kinds of amazing kids that we support. Take a look by clicking the above photo! Don’t worry, it is less than 3 minutes! 🙂
