Pictures of Africa, Part 9 – Plans to Return


One of the most exciting things about my trip to Bulembu was the continuous sense that I had work to do there.  As I have already mentioned, I first felt it when I met the student musicians, even more so when I met with them to talk about song writing. But I was quite surprised when a lunch conversation turned to social emotional learning (SEL) in education. My non-profit, Touchstone Youth Resource Services, Inc., provides SEL to high school students in Nashville through an initiative called CiViL. To put it in simpler terms, we inspire change by helping youth envision a hopeful future, embrace positive options, and engage in real steps toward a better life (find more information about Touchstone), and it turns out that one of my team members serves a similar organization. 
  
We brainstormed about how we could provide services to students in Bulembu.  After several conversations with the director of Bulembu and the headmaster of the school, we made a plan to pilot CiViL in Bulembu next summer.  During the coming year we will be raising the funds necessary to bring a team back to Swaziland.  The cost of that trip will be in the thousands, so please consider supporting our efforts on behalf of Bulembu between now and then.

    I have never been to Bulembu. But based on how you have described it, I can see that I am going to have fun there especially if I will be there fro a cause. I want to go there because I am motivated to help others in a way that I can. I will surely write my experience on https://essaysoriginreview.com/review-on-college-paper-org/ because I am sure that it would be a special moment for me. I guess, it's about time for me to explore there.

    You should be able to develop a clearer picture of what services they offer and what it's like to receive treatment there. If the dentist doesn't have a website, this process will be more difficult for [url=https://www.dentista.com.au/]dentista[/url] you and you're going to have to call them or pay them a visit to find the information you need. As mentioned earlier, this won't be too much of a problem as almost all of the 85 dentists in the Derby area are within a half-hour drive of the city centre.
