So I had to share this.. 😳
I remember when the idea of this project started buzzing in my head in 2014, i was so confused and i started asking myself critical questions. it was so hard to believe i was thinking about doing all these things n my head - i am small, can be shy, a social media introvert (is that even a thing? Lol) plus no one will ever listen to me etc. But this verse of the Bible kept ringing in my head - Habakkuk 2:1-3 and so eventually, i responded. I wrote down everything: the whole plan, the structure, the team i wanted, the type of partnerships, everything i could think of, It became so real i could almost taste it.
Then i knew i had to build capacity, so I started researching and reading different materials, took some online courses in project management, NGO management, humanitarianism, etc.. anything relevant to fuel my passion (as if I wasn't happy reading..geek!)
I cant even start talking about the fear and paranoia i felt when we were to kick off in 2015, I wanted to run away from it (i still think about running away sometimes, Lol), but God cornered me. He blessed me with an even better team, that I could learn from, took the org like it's theirs and to top it up, a team that gave me the opportunity to lead..and so much more.
So during the last meeting of 2016,we looked at our processes critically, did our SWOT analysis and planned ahead for 2017 and we decided to look at what we had done so far. I couldn't hide my excitement and gratitude to God and my team..So with the fear in my head, my heart is connected to God because I know He is able to strengthen me to nurture and build this 'child' He gifted me with. So I'm chilled and This is just me celebrating our little successes.😊@nirvana_sci
