MY MOTHER – THEIR MOTHER  & ALLEVIATING POVERTY

MY MOTHER – THEIR MOTHER & ALLEVIATING POVERTY

If you are going to be an aid worker and you come from an industrialized society…  What do you take with you in culture… expectations, ideals, values…… in your self?

 

Many of us carry our mothers inner voice —-her rules, her thoughts about how to bring up children, he values on love and life.

 

To make you smile….

To make your remember where you come from and who was your first teacher…

 

Listen and watch this mother and think of your own….

(DID THAT MAKE YOU SMILE? DID THAT BRING BACK MEMORIES!)?

 

 

 

NOW, think about this:

 

If I am going to be an aid worker….

 

If I am going to work in the field, in a humanitarian role, for example, in education,  social services, health:

 

How does my upbringing, my own set of values apply to mothers  and children, poverty alleviation, maternal and child health, education, environment and safety?

 

What do I believe is best for mothers and children?

 

What was best for me?

 

How do I integrate who I am with what I want to do for mothers, children and families?
