The Good Shepherd leads the Sheep away from danger
Moulding the Good Shepherd Leader
In today's world,of chaos and confusion, especially in the last 3 months where there has been major protests staged in Bangkok, it has been a trying time for thousands of Thais in the capital city, because it was learning to discern all the different "voices" screaming to be heard.
As tough as it was for the person in the street to know the intricacies and political jargon, the commoner finally learns that it has to do with intergrity, honesty, responsibility and accountability. All of which are characteristics that we in the Foundation are trying to instill in our young under the Project: Character and Leadership Training for Thai Youths.
Indeed this Project entails a tiring and long process, which many do not like to be involved, because it takes TIME before we can see any 'fruits' to the labour that we put in. However, the Foundation is convinced that if we want a better future for our kids, we need better citizens, and we need to train and instill good moral values and tenacity, WHILE THEY ARE YOUNG.
Thus, we continued in our yearly efforts in conducting Leadership Camps, and this year it was with the theme "Moulding the Good Shepherd Leader". All the activities were inter-linked to this theme, from the Icebreaking games, to the topics on leadership, all the way to our ooutdoor activities and skills!
Due to the rainy weather in the month, the nearly 300 campers had to deal with unexpected weather changes, that were obstacles to outdoor activites. However, these were great training opportunitites for all, to learn to adapt and be flexible, while needing to ensure that goals were achieved.
May, an adult volunteer who came to help in the camp said, " I am amazed how everything just fell into place, despite all the challenges that we had!"
Ti, a young youth echoed," I've never been to any camps where every item in the table-table, just linked so well together!"
"I really learn to appreciate that if i were to be a Good Shepherd Leader, I have to be proactive and consider my sheep (ie those I lead), first!" commented Mook
By the end of the camps, memories of unity and love, bonded the campers together, each promising to be back again for next year's training.
The Foundation is grateful to all donors, because you care to bear with us in this challenging work of nurtuing people, espcially the young, and we welcome any feedback to help improve our outreach to the young.
