Laugh, and the whole world laughs with you. Cry and you cry lol alone.

Tap Elderly Women's Wisdom for Youth (TEWWY)

When you are happy, people will want to be around you and share your happiness. However, when you are sad, people will avoid you. Nobody wants to share somebody’s misery.

Let’s take an example of a married couple. When the couple is together living happily, many people will want to visit them and be around them. If however they get separated, no one will want to pay a visit or be close to them. This is the way of life. It’s just how life is.

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. .
