Sayings of the Wise

Nobody is perfect. We make mistakes. We say the wrong things. We do wrong things. We fall. We learn. We grow. We move on. We live!

Tap Elderly Women's Wisdom for Youth (TEWWY)

Nobody is perfect, we often say wrong things, do wrong things and thus, make a lot of mistakes all throughout our lives. However, that’s what makes us human beings. It’s important to understand that all of us make mistakes but that does not depict that we are a failure. Many times things don’t happen the way we want. We fail, but then again, we get up. We learn from each other all the time and this makes us keep growing. We move on and thus we live.

It’s important to understand that we are human and that to err is human, all that we do, is part of our lives. It doesn’t matter how many times we’ve done wrong, all that counts is how many times did we make it happen and stood up all over again to rectify the wrong doings. 

All that matters in life is not the number of times we failed, but the number of times that we got up.

School Mental Health Intervention Program

The project implements WHO’s School Mental Health Program while ensuring cultural relevance and contextual factors. Collaborating with a public school, we will train students and teachers, and co-develop and disseminate psychoeducation resources among students, teachers, and surrounding communities. Students will be taught mental health literacy. The teacher training will cover child development, identifying and addressing mental health problems in a classroom, and promoting mental health. This is projected to improve academic achievement rates, create safe spaces within the school, reduce violence and juvenile crime, prevent bullying, strengthen peer support systems, and improve teacher wellness.
