We appreciate our volunteers. Abigail won a branded t-shirt for a beautifully composed pitch for the @nkosoinitiative1 #innovative#nkosuoinitiative#volunteers#picoftheday#changinglives#creatingopportunities#partnerwithus#project#elevatorpitch#sdg#agenda2030#sdgs The Nkosuo Initiative is a 3 in one Local Economic development (LED) project that first seeks to empower rural residents through income generation, job creation and finally support the Trotor Community orphanage. Most of the rural inhabitants of Trotor and neighbouring villages depend on subsistence and seasonal farming (of cocoa on a small scale). Due to this limitation, they are currently not able to make a livelihood or educate their children (a task that is being handled by the community orphanage with no support). The initiative is therefore to introduce crop diversification to the people while assisting in getting ready market for their produce and then ultimately commit some of the revenue generated towards supporting the orphanage. The second branch of this initiative is where we introduce food processing and other value creation activities to especially the youth and women. In summary, we will be creating jobs , mentoring the youth, helping farmers diversify and increase their income and help provide education. We have started with Trotor. And guess what, we will be doing this, one community at a time till the SDG goals 1,2,4,8 and 10 are all achieved.
In life we come across people that change our lives.. @mandyynicoleee you’re one of them for me! Not just because you’re my second Instagram stalker😅(in all good ways 😉🤗), but because of who you are! I’m so grateful you took a leap of faith, included us in your own “world race”, following my journey on social media, and coming out to our campus in Uganda to love each and every one of us so deeply! You brought priceless joy and pure happiness to hundreds every day you were here! You dug deep into every aspect of our ministry and planted seeds for decades to come. We truly miss you and cannot wait to have you back!! #uganda#bbbmofug#lovingdeep#lovingfar#lovingwide#faith#trust#volunteers#biggestheart#teachingourkiddos#faithatwork
One sound, one “no not my baby” scream changed it all for me...It stopped the constant partying. It stopped greetings in new cities with eight balls of cocaine. It stopped the drinking and driving. It stopped the abuse of pain medication. It stopped the feeling of invisibility and brought to reality how lucky I am that I am here. . . . . One cry, from one mother on a rainy night volunteering in the hospital, who I don’t not even know the name of saved my life. The sound a mother makes when she looses a child is gut wrenching. It pierces your soul. It is sound I never want my mom to make. So gone are the days of “black out drunk”. Gone are the days of drug use and abuse. I live each day with a purpose and try my best to ensure there is a tomorrow. . . . #lifechanges#changetheworld#changeishard#changeforthebetter#changeforbetter#bethechangeyouwanttosee#bethechange#mindset#volunteering#volunteers#emergencyroom#emergencymedicine
My husband was in charge of his company, Lyondell Basell's, Global Cleanup Day. The company and their families spent the morning and afternoon cleaning up the Freemansburg Canal Preservation. The preservation holds historical camps and field trips to and we helped clean up and set up for the school season all morning and afternoon. It was a great day for some outdoor volunteer work! So proud of my whole family for being a part of this. #global#cleanup#environment#pollution#preservation#historical#canals#waterway#ironmill#charity#volunteers
Did you volunteer today, for World Clean Up Day? I did! And I had a great time. I actually went plogging: jogging and picking up trash with @ikeausa @clifbar @decathlonusa and a great bunch of people. My favorite part was seeing the kids participating, they truly are our future and we need them to care about the environment/planet and make meaningful changes to help reverse what generations before them have done to pollute the planet. We may not have known exactly what harm we were doing, but now we do and we can do better and teach our children to do better too.
