Thank you for taking time and reading about this project. You and I have met at least once in this life time. With some of you we stay in contact and update each other on work and life progress, with others we keep warm memories about each other. This year is very important for me as it summarises what I have been thinking about, working towards to and investing in for the last decade.
I just got back from Cusco in Peru where I have spent two weeks of working in the indigenous communities helping in water preservation, reforestation and english teaching projects. It has been a wonderful experience which I shall cherish for the rest of my life. The most tear dropping moment for me was seeing these two little girls bringing their little pink boxes with soap to wash their hands...It has been a couple of months after their training on a proper wasting technique (which puts mine to shame!) and the thought of how many illnesses it can stop gives me chills...
My next destination however is Arequipa, Peru where I shall be working with girls and women who has suffered from abandonment, neglecting and abuse. The project is at case Hogar Torre Fuerte which is the home where girls being sent by government but have minimal funding for its support and therefore relies heavily on volunteers and donations. The mission is yo give girls back a childhood o which they have been deprived.
Women and girls empowerment has been part of my life for a long time and I wasn't sure how to come around it as the calling has become so strong that all I can think now is what can I do and how can I help to build a sisterhood of like minded women, supporting each other in every endeavour through friendships, yoga classes, seminars, workshops, special moment, walks, coffee talks...I have been very fortunate to meet with so many wonderful women whom I can proudly call my soul sisters and I will continue to make an effort in supporting them and most importantly to allow them support me. It is always a two way road.
I shall create a list of events that will be held through out next year which will be yoga classes, workshops, women's circles, dance and art classes. The cost of attendance will be based on donations. The goal for these event is to create a community of likeminded women that helps to encourage conscious friendships and support for growth. The accumulated donations will work towards my participations in international projects where I can utilise my skills of Yoga teaching, wellness coaching, English teaching, cooking and simply be a shoulder to lean on for those who needs it. Yogicly speaking, this is my Dharma. Namaste!
