For the past two weeks, I have been figuring out a new definition of what I do, and with a few amazing friends this afternoon I got a summary to answer the question: What do you do? “So I am me, and I facilitate conversations and listen to stories” Am still figuring out a definition to summarise this in one word.
But here is one story: Two months ago I facilitated a conversation about developing dreams with a special group of women in Nairobi, and this week I was listening to stories of transformation. Mary has a unique story, she wanted to do something to earn a living, she was inspired, informed and encouraged to start a day care centre business after the conversation. A grandma of many is now using her skills to run the day care home for children in Nairobi and she is still dreaming big. Her life has been changed … I can go on writing but in summary I have seen many people transforming and creating sustainable projects using locally available resources. Am humbled, and I am confident to say; “Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can”
