Sayings of the Wise

It’s during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.

Aristotle Onassis
Tap Elderly Women's Wisdom for Youth (TEWWY)

When things are going in our favor, we naturally become happy, excited, positive and grateful. It’s human nature, nothing strange about it. We even tend to forget that such a situation might be temporary, that it might not last forever. We know that human life is made of ups and downs. Whatever happens to us is not permanent, not to stay there forever.

When the dark side of life come, when nothing seems to go well, we need to truly focus to see the light. If we do not do that, chances of sinking in total darkness is very real and it can be detrimental to our mental health. Living in darkness can very easily lead to depression. When faced with such challenges, we must try as much as possible to see the light.

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. .
