About Me:
I'm a golden apple with the heart of a mango!
I'm also very open to developing new strategies of working with and developing people.
My dream:
We never loose our humanity, our faith in God and in each other.
My concern:
Our families, which are the foundation of our society, is progressively eroding. Our boys and men are not being taught responsibility and are rarely held accountable thus continuing this vicious cycle of poverty if not of circumstances, of the mind.
I'm proud of:
Being a part of empowering people so that they change their behavior and attitude about themselves which translates into their interactions at the family and community levels.
What I think of Community Life Competence:
