Today, we had an exciting role-modeling session with learners at South Lunzu Primary School in Blantyre. We organized the activity to inspire and motivate the learners by introducing them to successful individuals who can serve as their positive role models.
During the session, some accomplished individuals were invited to share their stories and experiences. The role models came from various fields, including education, health, entrepreneurship, and community development. The role models shared their life stories, stressing the challenges they faced and how they overcame them to achieve their goals.
The activity was highly interactive, allowing the students to ask questions and engage with the speakers. This provided valuable insights into the different paths they can take to achieve their dreams. The speakers also emphasized the importance of hard work, determination, and perseverance in achieving success.
YONECO organizes role-modeling sessions for primary and secondary school learners with the aim of inspiring them to dream big and believe in themselves. By presenting relatable role models, the session helped the learners understand that success is attainable regardless of their background or other circumstances.
In addition to this, the activity also sought to address issues of gender stereotypes and promote the importance of equality and inclusion.
