One of the topics at the 2014 Summit was having the courage to create the life you want. Our speaker,
Carolyn Jones demonstrated a tool she has been using for many years, vision boards. In 2012, Carolyn began using this tool to manifest her dream to travel to Kenya, Africa. She shared her intentional focus on that dream and physical visualization of it with us. Carolyn also talked about her relationship with Carol Huntington, who had a dream to help children in Africa.
After her presentation, Summit Chair Wendy Pitts Reeves introduced Carolyn to Alison Mistak of Moja Designs, which grew out of The Alliance for Youth Achievement, a small, non-profit that worked in Africa from 2000-2012. Allison, in turn, shared with Carolyn the names of many contacts in Africa, including directors of many schools there.
In October of this year, Carolyn Jones realized her dream. She traveled with Carol Huntington to Africa. While there, they established Global Hearts, which will provide financial support to ensure that young women get a high school education.
Currently they are raising funds to support their first five girls. To see learn more about Purity, Leesh, Gladys, Cecelia, and Saiboku and to donate to their education, go to the Global Hearts page at gofundme.
