Jogoo Awike Asiwike, Kutakucha Tu

Mara nyingi tunasikia watu wakisema msemo huo hapo juu. Msemo huu una maana kubwa sana kwa maisha yetu ya hapa duniani. Binadamu tuko tofauti, kuna wengine kazi yao kubwa wanayoiweza ni kuhakikisha kuwa wanakwamisha juhudi za wengine ili mradi tu wasifanikiwe. Hufanya hivyo wakiwa na furaha mioyoni mwao kuwa watazuia maendeleo ama mafanikio ya wenzao.

Ukweli ni kwamba siyo lazima malengo yao ya kukukwamisha yafanikiwe. Pamoja na kushindwa kwao bado wataendelea kujaribu kila njia ili azma yao ifanikiwe. Watu wa aina hii huwa hawachoki. Wanaweza wakafanya hivyo kwa muda mrefu lakini kutokana na juhudi zake za kufanya kazi mtu huyu, bila kukata tamaa pamoja na kumtegemea Mungu, mwisho wa siku hufanikiwa kwa kiasi kikubwa sana.

Hatimaye, baada ya kuona kuwa jitihada za kumwangusha zimeshindikana, wale watesi wake hubaki wakishangaa. Hawajui kuwa mafanikio ya mtu mwenye haki hayazuiliki bali yanaweza kuchelewesha tu na si vinginevyo. Cha msingi, yatupasa tujifunze kuwa wavumilivu katika maisha yetu, magumu tupitiayo yasitukatishe tamaa bali yatuimarishe zaidi katika utendaji wetu wa kazi. Matatizo ni sehemu muhimu sana katika maisha ya mwanadamu. Matatizo hutufundisha, hutujenga na kutufanya tuwe bora kadri siku zinavyoenda. Na ndio maana ni sahihi kabisa kusema kuwa hata jogoo asipowika, ni lazima kutakucha tu, hakuweza kuendelea kuwa usiku, mwanga utakuja na siku mpya itaanza vyovyote na iwavyo.

The Healing Hands Project

The Healing Hands project will economically empower people to achieve financial autonomy by building entrepreneurial skills and embedding skills transfer within the community – eliminating poverty as a driver of ill mental health. Funds raised from the jewelry will help sustain the implementation of accessible psychosocial interventions in underserved communities and promote the economic empowerment of the grandmothers who have been trained in and are implementing WHO’s mental health Gap Action Program. Healing Hands provides interpersonal counseling, group talk therapy, and psychoeducation resources delivered through arts, where clients learn to handcraft traditional beaded jewelry as a marketable skill.
