6th week in Dignity

Time flies and here’s a lil update on the class I’ve been conducting at Dignity for Children foundation…

Most of the students are progressing extremely well and it’s been a journey full of joy and fun….

As much as I make sure they are disciplined in learning , I will make sure they enjoy the class 😀

They get to practice haircut on live model by cutting the students’ hair from the school itself…. Dignity For Children Foundation has about 900 students from kindergarten ,primary all the way till secondary class…

I believe in guiding them not just in haircut skill, but also build their self confidence and a healthy self esteem…some of them grew up having very low self esteem and lack In confidence due to their upbringing… After more than 6 weeks ( 2days weekly)  of training, some begin to talk more and begin to express their passion in haircutting skill.. And I constantly motivate them about the great future of being a professional hairdresser .. reminding them how this beautiful art of hairdressing can build their life.  Most importantly to break the cycle of poverty… Also to use this skill to bless somebody…

One of the week, I decided to have lunch with all of them…bought them  lunch and it was bonding session where I try to get to know them better 🙂  having a meal with them is like seeing and feeding my own son and daughters … It was a simple meal but it’s full of joy…I was raised by my mom that one of her way of showing love is to make sure I am well fed and never hunger….I can truly understand how she feel now.. The joy of feeding my own children , lol…

Indeed its been a great journey so far…

The challenge is to help them see a future in more than just a pair of scissor.. It’s also about the people that they will meet along the way in this journey. That is to build a strong team that will journey this path together with them:)

At the end, i have to admit …that  while im teaching, i’m learning too… ive learnt so much  from the students.. from their stories, that will remain history 🙂 I believe  great future is awaiting for them.

 

 

As for now, I’m planning to bring them out to cut hair for the community home such as old folks home, orphanages home or the underprivileged community home.. to be a blessing to the community that we are living in..

 

 

Much love,
