The Leader as a Good Shepherd
The Foundation for Life has never lost sight of the importance of good leadership so as to instill in the young people, good character and virtue, which the Foundation strongly believes will help them to go through the turmoils in Life. It is for this reason that great care and attention has been poured into how we train them. The Foundation is also well aware that Action Speaks Louder than anything we can say, therefore, leaders who are involved with the young and the youths have to be people who Walk their Talk.
It was a great honor that the President and Founder of The Children's House Hawaii, Mary Los Banos, has offered to mentor our Leaders in the Way of The Good Shepherd, going through the processes of self-awareness,renewal and rejuvenation of the Leader, so that he / she might be the exemplary model for the young to look up to, and be a yardstick of good morals. Imbedded amongst the subject matter are issues pertaining to one's objectives in life, and how that would motivate us to act out love and care for others (especial to the young people that our leaders have contact with).
The 3 days of training were indeed very enlightening, and refreshing, causing the leaders to take time to pause and reflect our journeys in Life.
"I will make everyeffort to speak with love and gentleness with the children that I work with," said Grace, a leader who has been teaching the children for around 5 years.
Yen-Dee replied,"I think that the Way of the Good Shepherd is how we should approach, anyone that we minister to, what more the young people, whose lives are so precious!"
All who attended, were determined to make changes in either their life-styles or their approach to others, so that the outlook for our young people would be a brighter one.
The Foundation for Life thanks all partners who have untiringly been with is all these years and supporting our efforts to build a better future, through the new generation.
