I am lucky to be born in my situation and I feel the urge to help those who are born in terrible circumstances just out of bad luck. They inspire me to work and grow professionally and individually to eventually make a difference.
When I was a teenager, I was able to go to an orphanage for two consecutive years every Saturday and it was through this experience that I realized how even the work of just one person can make a significant difference in a person’s life. This is why I am certain that Pugoka and the Pugoka Community, with your support will create sustainable change for many years to come.
My life mentor and guide is my mother who together with her education, her values and hard work, has been able to surround me and my brothers with a strong background in values, leadership and in education. She is therefore an asset in my life and inspires me to work to fulfill my goals and dreams.
Through Pugoka, my wish is to fund projects all over the world and to create a Pugoka Community; a virtual community and a physical workforce, all centered to collaborate with each other creating social change.
As this is a collaborative project, it will enable its members to benefit in ways that would not otherwise be possible on an individual basis. Those receiving and supporting will be part of the Pugoka Community, a community based on love and reciprocity.
With the VOF training, my skills as an industrial engineer, together with my passion to help others, I am confident that Pugoka will rapidly succeed in creating dramatic changes not only for poor people but at all levels of society; personal, organizational , community and national.
