M-Kid conducted a transformative workshop titled “Embarking on a Journey of Growth with Young Children” from the 16th to 18th June 2023. The workshop, funded by the SBM Foundation, aimed to empower 16 vulnerable children in Péreybère through three key areas: fostering self-motivation, cultivating politeness, and promoting good posture.
The workshop focused on fostering self-motivation, teaching vulnerable children the importance of setting goals, embracing challenges, and persevering through obstacles to ignite their intrinsic motivation. Cultivating politeness emphasised the value of respect, empathy, and effective communication, enhancing their interactions and building positive relationships. Additionally, promoting good posture highlighted the impact on overall health, confidence, and physical well-being, providing a strong foundation for their growth and development.
These three areas are particularly vital for vulnerable children. By instilling self-motivation, children gain the resilience and determination needed to overcome challenges often associated with their circumstances. Cultivating politeness fosters empathy and respect, enabling them to build healthy relationships and thrive in their communities. Promoting good posture not only enhances physical well-being but also boosts confidence and self-esteem, empowering children to face life’s hurdles with poise.
The workshop sessions on self-motivation and politeness were skilfully animated by Ms Shazaa AGJ, while Ms Yasmine Muhammad, a yoga specialist, provided valuable insights on the health benefits of yoga and maintaining good posture. The children actively participated in the sessions and expressed their gratitude for the engaging and transformative experience.
M-Kids remains committed to empowering vulnerable children and nurturing their potential. Through workshops and initiatives like “Embarking on a Journey of Growth with Young Children,” the organisation continues to make a positive impact on the lives of these young individuals, providing them with the necessary tools to overcome challenges and achieve their dreams.
