Sayings of the Wise

Actions speak louder than words

Tap Elderly Women's Wisdom for Youth (TEWWY)

The proverb expresses the idea that studying a person’s actions gives you a better impression of their character than what they say. What you do is more important than what you say, because the things you do show your true intentions and feelings. And if we say that we will do something for people, then we should come through in acting out our promises. Otherwise, try to refrain from making empty promises, especially to children.

For instance, if you are always promising that you are willing to help out, but somehow you are always conveniently busy whenever anyone asks you for help, people might call you out that you are full of nonsense because your actions are saying different than the words you speak.

The Healing Hands Project: Wisdom and Wellness through Art

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. .
