Sayings of the Wise

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.

African Proverb
Tap Elderly Women's Wisdom for Youth (TEWWY)

When you work alone, you have the luxury of not having to wait for anyone or needing anyone’s approval to get things done, thus you are able to work faster. On the other hand, if you want to go far, it’s advisable that you bring other people along with you. With a diverse team, more ideas are born. Weigh the cons and pros for both approaches. Sometimes it’s good to move ahead fast with limited to no blocks in order to meet a deadline. Whereas working as a team might derail the process but bring about extraordinary results. Plan to choose, and choose wisely; and more importantly, trust in yourself, your team and your vision.

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. .
