Dear Lily,

I am so impressed by the wonderful skills you have and the most outstanding thing is the vision to be able to pass these on to other girls to support their education and women. Little children having diabetes could be a result of parent to child transmission or we call it hereditary diabetes. Lack of awareness on life style choices including diet can be worked upon. I encourage you to begin production of your items through tailoring and beading etc and start marketing them or sales. From the sales, you can save some and but machinery for more production. Inform women and girls that you provide free training on a particular day and give that training. Keep details of these participants like name, phone number, address. Help women to start production like yourself. Request them to give back some percentage for your training center. Build a corpus and an army of women production units. All this will take time, a lot of coordination and mobilization but it can be done( I have witnessed it) and its extremely gratifying to grow organically. I am happy to help you with time to time advice. All the best my sister.

Much love always

Dear Urmila,

Since I join WP, the names which rings in my brain is, Ch Urmilla...is one of them. I'm glad to read your comment today. All what you said is true. I'll be having the army of women in the beading and tailoring , and leather production and join the world market and make a great change. When women have money, they can plan for the diet, what to shop and what to feed the family. If a woman is not earning, she can't prepared the balanced diet on her table .

You really touched the button, and i'll do what you said.

Thank you so much.

Hi Lily,

Yes so sad for such a young one. Is diabetes happening because of genetics or diet" Here it is a mix of either and/or both.

Dear Tam,

The cases are both genetic but the diet issues dominates. The people who called themselves rich, are feeding their children only junk food. proceed drink, fast food, ...almost everyday.

they don't have the knowledge of home grown vegetable or fruit, or they think they are more civilized when they buy and eat the preserved food.  

That is the most case.

Thank you

Lily

Two ways that are attempts to control us are by making education difficult to obtain, and by increasing illnesses by making dangerous foods popular. A third, as we know, is by violence against anyone working to change this. Your work for health is so important.
