All my life,since childhood I have always concern myself with others,I hate to see people suffering or go through pains. As a child life was simple and I had all I wanted because my father provides everything we need,the economy was good,but things got from better to worse when he took another wife. When I left high school,and were seeking admission to university,thing were not Rossy at all,I went through school sponsor by my father,and a man who took advantage of the situation,I was going through.Throughout my university days I didn't have the freedom like every other girl, because he determine all I have to do,though I see him as my mentor,because without him I won't go through university,but he did all that for a gain marriage, when he saw that I won't marry him he stopped sponsoring me.Thank God I was able to go through school. There are many girls going through even worse situation,engaging in prositution just to live or go to school.All of these inspire me to want to mentor girls that they can become whatever they want to be without selling their body,for money.They can be empowered to engage themselves in profitable venture to go through school.When I was in school I was making shirt and selling to make ends meet. Even women that are married are abandon by their husband with their children and they have to sell their bodies to make ends meet because they lack the financial empowerment to provide for their family and when the husband can not cater for the family because of lack of job or reckless spending, it is the woman that takes up the responsibility of the children. There are several women looking up to me for financial assistant for their business,which I can not meet because my income is limited. My vision is to be able to mentor and inspire women and youth that nothing is impossible if they believe in themselves and are ready to take up opportunity that comes their way. In this light I started an organisation called 'Pathfinder initiative',its in the incubation stage,and not yet registered,I want partner and sponsors to be able to make this dream a reality. This initiative vision is to help youth find their path in life early,to present them with opportunity around them which they are not focusing on either online or offline and women to empower women with skills and financial assistance that will improve their status. Thank you world pulse for this platform to learn more on how to bring the desire change I want in my community. Thank you.
