Kutsaca = Being Happy

kutsaca
Posted July 25, 2019 from Portugal

My name is Susana, I'm 42 years old and have 22 years of professional experience in supervision, managament, training, design and implementation of skills development and consulting projects, with experience in the private, state and non-governmental sectors. 

From the age of 33 and at the time in a national management position of a multinational, I've began a long process of reflection that culminated with the discovery of what really makes me happy: to support the discovery of talents and their process of catalysis, in a more fair, dignified and usefull way for all. The dream has always been África, because here there is much to be done and any small contribution can really change lives! 

Out of the business environment and material comfort, I left the work, the house, the huge unnecessary expenses and the country. A year of volunteering in England, allowed me, beyond an amaizing experience, to mature a long-held dream:

Methodology: Non-formal education. Destination: Mozambique. 

In September 2014 Kutsaca was oficially born and 5 years later, there are a lot of achievements and challenges, which in themselves are a life,  a learning, sharing and growth process.

The purpose remains: Awake, Train, Transform. In addition with Kutsaca, I remain as a free lancer in organizations.

Creating, awakening, generating bridges are my motives to action. 

I defend and spread a message of authenticity, love, humility, courage and resilience.
