IN THE CONVERSATION, YOU WILL LEARN:
~ Get past your own human experience. Cynthia talks about a turning point in her life where she was encouraged to grow by moving beyond her personal pain to achieve a greater purpose. She reveals how this inspired her to do even more than she even thought possible and in doing so getting back much more.
~ The push and pull of following your calling versus making money at a job. Cynthia shares tips on following your purpose from her own experience on what made her take the jump and eventually leaving her for –profit business and instead following her passion in creating positive change in people’s lives.
~ The Unstoppable model – The foundation uses the “ Sponsor a village” model as a holistic solution for creating sustainable education based on 5 essential pillars that make it different from most other non-profit organizations. It is currently in 10 communities in Kenya, 3 in Uganda and 2 in Liberia. However, Cynthia is ready to take this to the next level and scale up to even more areas of need around the world.
~ You can’t do everything by yourself. A crucial way the organization operates is through finding local partners who have the infrastructure, an already established relationship with the community and collaborate in implementing the project.
~ Creating generational change through education. Cynthia shares incredible stories and case studies on how the program has positively changed not only individual lives of people and communities but also possible generations to come. Tune in to hear the inspiring stories.
~ People want to make a difference. The program helps people contribute in various ways to support the program. Everyone can get involved from different levels, from companies to individuals. Hear the different ways and campaigns there are for people to support the program.
Cynthia is getting to live a life based on deep meaning and being inspired by giving. She strongly believes that the more you give, the more you get back in the most unexpected ways. You can’t out give the Universe or God. Living a life of giving and contribution is the best way to live an extraordinary life.
Giving Warriors means…
Somebody who is fearlessly determined, strong within themselves and committed. These are people who are taking a stand for some of the most important causes in the world. For Cynthia, it is providing a voice for the children who have no voices. She believes that we all have unique gifts and abilities that require us to use and step into making a difference. By not doing so, we are depriving the world and ourselves. If not us, then who?
