We are not letting the limitations of the slum affect the minds of these children as we believe every one of them is meant for greatness and we are using the game of chess to unveil the royalty that lives deep within them!

FM Daniel Anwuli came through with his promise and we had 13 packs of pizza which was purchased at the Domino’s pizza outlet in Ebutte Ikorodu..
We received two extra packs with five drinks courtesy the management as they also supported us by coming to serve the children personally..
It was a yummy experience as most of the children were eating pizza for the first time but loved it so much that they kept asking for more..
Some of the children wrapped theirs carefully and took it home to their families so they could share with their parents and siblings❤..
Thanks to our amazing Chef Inee, we stepped it down with a chilled cup of Zobo
It was a beautiful experience as we feasted together with love over a game of chess.

I remember as a child thinking I had to like sports because my parents signed me up for sports. They applauded me when I was "good" at them and told me I'd do better next time when I wasn't. So I wanted to do better. Thinking that not liking playing competitive sports was bad or wrong or my parents would be disappointed.
We learn so early on to seek the approval of adults, and peers, rather than to discover our own interests. The first time we roll over or sit up we learn that something we do makes someone else happy so we should keep doing that, it prevents us from figuring out what makes us happy on our own. And it keeps going all through out our lives. From who our friends are (our parents show obvious preference for certain friends, even at a young age) to what subjects we like in school, pushing us to be better at subjects that would be good for careers that will make us successful in their eyes.
What if we stopped all that? What if we instead understood that our children are born whole people? Exactly who they are meant to be without any interference from us? 🌔 With talents and interests and abilities that they just cant show us yet. What if by teaching them we rob them of the chance to teach themselves, and build their confidence? What if by dramatically praising them and rewarding them we rob them of the chance to be happy for themselves and teach them that they need to make us happy? What if we just let them be? What if we trust them to teach themselves? What if they trust us to keep them safe so they can grow on their own? 🙌

My biggest wish and greatest fear as a new parent go hand in hand with this. I never want to steer Anavi in any direction other than the one he chooses entirely on his own. I want to provide him full freedom to navigate the world in the way that brings HIM the most joy without any influence from me. 🍃

I'll keep you posted as to what this looks like for us.

Today me and @ashyl_mudiwa had a very important 2-hour talk with the teenage girls at the centre. We talked about the importance of standing up for yourself, believing in yourself, the importance of going to school, to say no, that abuse and rape is never ok and should always be reported! About self worth! They don’t think much of themselfs since the are girls! We tried to tell them that they all are superwomen and that no one can take that away from them. They can become anything they want!!! #everychildinschool #girls #superwoman #everykidcounts #everychildcounts #theskyisthelimit

Please join us in wishing Lincoln a happy 2nd birthday! He was born with Down Syndrome and a heart defect and struggled with his health until having heart surgery this summer. Lincoln is clearly enjoying the loving attention of the nannies at our Anhui Healing Home. In the year ahead, our wish for Lincoln is that he find a permanent family through adoption. Please reach out to our Adoption Advocacy Team at adoption@lwbmail.com if you would like to know more about this bright-eyed little guy. #DownSyndrome #NationalDownSyndromeAwarenessMonth #downrightperfect #china #adoption #downsyndromeadoption #lovewithoutboundaries #15yearsoflove #everychildcounts

Winston's nannies tell us that he is sweet and affectionate. He came into LWB care as a preemie and has grown into a happy toddler of 18 months. We are so thankful to everyone who has sponsored his medical and healing home care. Look what a difference you have made to this beautiful boy! #preemiepower #healinghome #china #lovewithoutboundaries #15yearsoflove #everychildcounts

#AFRICAN 😍..#everychildcounts pls visit the link via my bio guys and together let's save the world 😊

Today is World Food Day. The theme this year is #ZeroHunger.
What is Zero Hunger: To me–and to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations–it means working together to ensure everyone, everywhere, has access to the safe, healthy and nutritious food they need.
How can we achieve this seemingly massive task? √adopt a more sustainable lifestyle: shop local, eat local, eat in season, reduce your own food waste by turning leftovers into makeovers
√work with others and share our knowledge: educate, talk openly, participate in grassroots activities
√ be willing and open to help change the world–for the better: donate GOOD food to food banks, encourage local restaurants to share their leftovers, volunteer, purchase goods that support small farmers in developing countries.

I'm speaking out today because I believe that by raising awareness we can all make a difference. What are you doing to achieve Zero Hunger? Share some ideas in the comments. ***

It is never too early to start understanding graphic art or branding. Cuddalore School students created name plates for their desks in the art class. Using coloured felt pen, students embellished their names, giving an artistic start to the new academic year.#isha_vidhya!#IshaVidhya#makelife#ishavidhya#isha_vidhya #ishavidhyaschool#ishavidhyaeducatingruralindia#ruraleducation#ruraleducationindia#education #rightofeducation #educationfirst #everychildmatters#everychildisspecial#everychildcounts#everychildisanartist#giveindia#giveindiafoundation
