  • With my heart in my hand.

    Heart is supposed to beat in the chest yet mine was beating in my mouth. At one point, I believed I wouldn’t return home, not in one single piece at least ! The road conditions were miserable and it took me 18 hours plus to reach the beautiful village of Rabi in the East of Nepal. Nestled in the peaceful hills of Miklajung which is a rural village municipality in East Nepal, the Rai community welcomed me in this village accompanied by Srijana Rai (currently serving as the Vice President of Stars club Green Village Nepal). Srijana is one of the highly motivated youth who graduated from the Green Village Program in September 2021. Ever since her graduation, we had been discussing visiting her village to reach youth with similar interests. Time permitted us to achieve this dream in September 2022. This Training of Trainers (ToT) experience was definitely one of a kind. Actually anything I write will merely be a combination of words compared to the experience I had together with Srijana. This tribe is one of the indigenous ones in Nepal and this community in particular was peculiarly reserved. You could observe the obvious gender disparity in the families (at least the 3 houses I visited), the ceiling that young women hit when they express their desire to work independently in the city, the amount of invalid comments, when women choose to lead an independent life regardless of the resistance from the family ! The ToT in itself was a big achievement in terms of the number of people who attended it. The effectiveness? Well, it is not as easy as imagining the impact and effectiveness of it, from a remote desk 500 kilometers away in the capital ! However, one takeaway for me from this entire ‘once in a lifetime’ experience is to ask myself these important questions: What can I do as a mobilization manager to support the youth from geographical regions as this. Are we doing enough to incorporate these young women, while aligning and adhering to the essence and vision of The Green Village Nepal? What is the dream of Life Project For Youth in the end? This experience, exactly, like I hoped, has given me a window to peek through to realize how better to serve this project. And there is nothing more I could ask for ! With Gratitude to my core team Maria HITANG Project Manager Mobilization Green Village Nepal

  • Green Village Philippines revival !

    Today, we are opening a door to our Green Village in the Philippines with some pictures, some quotes from the Youth and a testimony from the coach of the program ! "Thank you for letting us do the tasks, because it makes us more independent" Kim "I am happy here because I learn everyday. Knowledge is power" Samantha Testimony of the Green Village Philippines coach, Raphaelle de Truchis And me, I feel empowered everyday as a person and a woman, by all of them, their stories, their evolution in the program, their feedback and ideas, their willingness to fight for their future. I learn at the same time. I go deeper in my self development when they realize who they are. I overcome my limits because they push me to. As a coach, you ensure that the project is well runned by the Youth, you step back and let them shine. I have the feeling the young women here are especially amazing, but I think it is the same feeling for other coaches that witness the power of LP4Y for youth that they personally accompany, aware of their personal life challenges! Since August 2022, after 3 and half years of being part of the Partnership and Fundraising Team of LP4Y, I became a coach. I realized that it is good to set objectives to have a goal, but it is also good to step back from it not to take too much pressure: we are not here for performance, we are here for IMPACT. And creating impact takes time. We had 4 Young women at the beginning, only 2 of them stayed. Mobilizing in the relocation sites around the Green Village took time. And it is good that we took it! Reconnect with youth, Stars, partners, that they acknowledge the reopening of LP4Y program in Calauan after 2 years closure, discover the place, choose to step out of their homes to join the program, focus on themselves sometimes for the first time in life, find a solution to take care of their kid during the training hours. At the end of November, 20 Young women are now part of the team, ready to change their lives! Sometimes, I feel overwhelmed by all what is remaining to do for the project (basic pressure of when you want to do good at work). Something helped me a lot: come back to the belief of their potential, they have the most impactful keys to make a positive change around them. We inspire each other at a point that I know it will be life changing for me. When you realize they apply something they learnt in only one week, you realize their power. You also realize how important it is to have friends to feel included in the society, how much LP4Y is a safe space for them to speak up, become more confident and discover their personality in a professional setting. They realize that they have strengths. They learn how to use them personally and professionally. "Don't be shy to ask help to others" Samantha "Before I was taking only the positive. I learnt to recognize what is the negative and how I can make it a solution not an excuse." Joyce "If you fail, it's ok. You can stand up and get ready for success" Emily "I am so happy to have found this place where nobody treat you badly." Fidel

  • Bolloré x LP4Y successful integration and collaboration in the Philippines

    Let's discover the two testimonies of two former Youth of Life Project 4 Youth in Philippines who had been integrated in our partner Bolloré. First testimony : Reynalyn Salboro I am Reynalyn Salboro, an outgoing intern at BL Asia Support Services Inc. I came from Life Project for Youth or known as LP4Y. Last April 25, 2022, I started my internship with the Human Resources and Admin Department. After that, I was assigned with Finance Department. I was quite anxious on my first day of work because it was my first time working in an office. However, things and my expectation seemed to change as days go by. When I met the employees of BL Asia Support Services, I was overjoyed and relieved because they are all approachable and kind. They’re easy to work and transact with. Despite working in a professional setting, I was made to feel at home throughout my four months there. I also learned a lot about confidentiality, paying attention to the details in every employee file, and participating in several events. And Ms. Jean made the decision to give me an additional challenge by deciding that I would also receive training in Finance. At first, this made me anxious because I despise numbers, but the moment I started processing supplier invoices, I was relieved with the fact the things I hated and initially afraid of can be surpassed through determination. It was also a pleasure working with Ms. Jenarlyd because she was kind and patient knowing how busy she was. This internship served as a steppingstone for me as I really wanted to land a good and decent job in the office given my working history with the manufacturing companies, and other on call jobs. I also had the pleasure of working with Ms. Jean – HR Manager, Ms. Kriselle – HR Specialist, and Ms. Jerriza – Admin Assistant throughout my internship at the HR and Admin Department because I have gained valuable knowledge from them, they never had a hesitation in providing me a close guidance so that I could grasp the procedures quickly. I’ll be forever grateful for the opportunity that BL Asia Support Services provided me. Additionally, the staff members are incredibly kind, considerate, and helpful. Thank you for your guidance and advice. I want to make you all proud and promise to do my best with every task that will be assigned in the future. And The good for me is this coming November 7, 2022 Blassi Absorb me that I’m the One of there employee. Second testimony : Germilyn E. Padrid. Good day everyone. I am Germilyn E. Padrid. I live at 1110 Laguna Ext Tondo, Manila, former youth of C4C1. I started my OJT last August 8 handled by my Manager Venus and the one who guided me in my duties is ma'am czarisse. The first few days I was so nervous but I realized that it was a normal feeling, it is part of the journey. I was thinking if I would do my job well and if I’ll get along with my office mates. After a few weeks I enjoyed doing my tasks because everyone was approachable and nice, and the one who taught me in the workplace was amazing. My work is managing the invoices or checking, registering invoices and also completing internal invoicing and cost posting. Does it look hard? Haha at first I was confused, because you need to go through the container to know which branch it should be registered to because there are three branches which are N08, N02 and N01. That's why you need to be extremely focused while working. In my 3 months here I learned a lot because before I didn't know the forwarding and why we needed to do them. I was happy because people around me motivated me and they always tell me that I can do it and they didn’t treat me differently just because I am not a degree holder. And I also want to tell you that there is no hard task when you enjoy what you do. LP4Y was such a big help to reach your goals in life because the day isn’t over yet to continue to fulfill your dreams. And I also want to say that they want me to be part of their company.
