SHE IS A CHANGE

This is beyond creativity! I saw this talented young lady called Mariama Kallon and her supportive husband Mr. Augustine two months back on Facebook calling on people to come and learn creative skills for free. I wanted to join her class not only to learn but to commend her for a job well done, unfortunately, I didn't make it up because of my busy schedules. Though I didn't go for her class, I took her phone number with the intention of contacting her someday which I did. she amazed me a lot! For the world to be a better place, such people are needed in society.  As the co-founder and CEO of Future Leaders Initiative SL [ a non- profit-making organisation working to protect, promote, educate and empower children, women and youth] we have both decided to team up to bring up a community creative skills training centre which will start soon in due time to empower more people. When this initiative commences, I shall share details with you here.

Hi Ibrahim,

How are you and your family doing? Oh, wow! This is amazing that she's offering this for free. How can she afford to do it! I hope you invite Mariama to World Pulse. I would love to hear more about her, her work, and mission.

Good morning from my side here in Freetown Jill. Thank you for checking on me and my family, we are fine. I hope yours are fine too. Mariama has a small place in her community where she normally does her activities. As I likely said, we are going to work as one now as an organisation. Here if we are catering for a hundred or more people we rent a hall anytime we want to organise an event including chairs, getting breakfast and lunch for participants.
Sure, I have invited her. I gave her the World Plus link I am sure she will come on board.

Hi there!

You're welcome. Glad to hear it. Yes, I'm doing well, thanks.

Yes, you mentioned that you would be but are you saying that you will help to fund her training, then, or you're just collaborating together to provide a bigger outreach of impact?

I'm glad to hear you let her know about World Pulse. I hope she joins!

Have a good day!

I would be happy to fund her if have the money but unfortunately I do not have money .Many times I struggled to execute most of my small projects because of funds. I am collaborating with her so that her dreams can be realised. She is now the director of creative arts which means for every workshops we put on, she will get a pay for that. I wish I get support for my organisation to bring these women together to help make the world a better place Jill.

Yes, that's what I thought. Well, that's thoughtful of you. I hope that it works out, for both of you. Please keep us posted on your collaboration with her. I hope so, too!

Hope you have a good weekend.
