Precious Kalungu, one of Our Moon’s current scholars writes about a recent outing organised by barakacommunitypartnerships.
“It was an honour being given an opportunity to be part of the audience of intellectual speakers.
I was at a meeting organised by Baraka Community Partnerships, an organisation that partly funds my Our Moon scholarship. Each year, Baraka gets all of its sponsored students together for a day of learning, collaborating and networking. I am lucky to be invited to these gatherings.
Our main speakers included Doctor Emelia and a lawyer by the name of Rogers; both are London based. The sessional lessons we had comprised of helpful tips for work which are applicable in any situation, even at school or at home with families and friends.
They talked about the magical triple Ds :
They advised that we consider these in everything we do. We were encouraged to stay focused and put in our all, be it in their studies, work etc.
Noting the fact that the entire audience was a group of sponsored children by Baraka Community Partnerships, the message derived by the entire audience from most motivational talks was a statement of being “unique”. As a certain quotes states, “many follow paths that are already made by long-gone individuals and few make an effort to create their own path”. The upcoming generation should aim at doing the rated “impossible” and set a new record.
I would like to acknowledge the work being done by Our Moon Organisation and Baraka Community Partnerships. It is evident that they put in their all into making sure that less-privileged children in Africa get the education they rightly deserve.
To all the sponsored children, let us continue Striving and Sweating as we approach our Success!”
