Ackerman Academy highly recommended

As a country we are facing an epidemic of women and children who are abused daily and statistics reveal that many endure this situation due to economic reasons.

I’m 100% convinced that the only long term solution for the epidemic to completely end, is EDUCATION.

We will need our education to create a self-reliant, confident, self-esteemed and go-getter mindset.

So we need to ensure that we pull the plug off the social ills before we can manage to have a society fully transformed.

While a student at the Raymond Ackermans Academy, the education dealt directly with what is called Ikigai (Passion, Mission, Profession and Vacation).

This module was important to me because it dealt with individual personal growth. Passion: what is it you mostly interested in? Mission: how can you drive your personal mission towards your Passion? Profession: how can you makes your passion be your profession, so you don’t feel the burden of working again? Vacation: turning your hobby to your work and be happy forever.

This form of education if we implement it one we will be cutting the relation between abused and economic helplessness. People will be creative and start thinking of initiatives to make a living.

Once they find their own passion and they can do it tirelessly and be able to put bread on the table. This typed of education is not the conventional one, it gives new horizon and many abused can find the light, hope within themselves and be self- motived.

Now is the time ladies and gents between the ages off 18-30 must apply to the academy so they can be able to benefit and shape up their future and economic growth.

This will ensure that they will not be part of the stats of abuser and abused because they will be skilled, self-reliant and be proud of their being.

I call upon all those who will be expressing their views on 16 days of activism to stop making this issue a cheap pep talk but provide meaningful solutions.
