Like to develop new ways of thinking. If we change our thoughts, we can change our behaviour and how we feel. A new programme that has brought life-enhancing benefits to many people is now more accessible to everybody. It is called Life-Skills Programme – details of which can be found on aware.ie. It is making CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) skills available to everyday people enabling us to make everyday life more fun and enjoyable. This programme gives us skills to overcome negative mindsets/ thinking, low self-confidence/ low self esteem/ severe anxiety/ mild depression. Feedback of many people – massive successes – this has radically changed my life. Look up aware.ie (see Life skills) for location of these courses. Course can also be done on line.

Cake Sale/Coffee Morning Fundraiser, Sunday 23rd March: From January to July, 2011, I lived and volunteered in Ghana, West Africa. This April, I will return to Ghana for a 5 week spell of volunteering. I will be living and volunteering on the same compound that I was on in 2011, referred to as ‘Ahotokurom’. Ahotokurom is situated near Cape Coast, Ghana, in the southern region. The compound was set up to offer assistance to those who suffered from Leprosy. It has since grown in size and hosts a special needs school, a child care centre and an elderly residential home. There are many projects currently under way in Ahotokurom. These include training for adolescents with special needs, educating and providing clothes and food for the children of the child care centre and providing a home for elders who have suffered from Leprosy. Ahotokurom also has much involvement with its surrounding villages, assisting in the building of a much needed community centre of the village of Abee, close to the compound. As a result, I wish to raise funds for these projects in the lead up to my return to Ghana.
A Cake Sale/Coffee Morning in Caherconlish Millennium Centre will therefore be held on Sunday 23rd of March from 10.00am-1.00pm. All support is welcome, be this dusting off the baking utensils or popping down to offer your support, every little helps. All proceeds raised will go directly to Ahotokurom and will greatly assist the compound in continuing to help the less fortunate and providing a much needed service in Ghana.
Feel free to contact me for any further details on 087-7734008 or visit the ‘Friends of Ahotokurom’ Facebook page to gain an insight into what the proceeds will go to. Jordan Balfry, Boskill, Caherconlish.
