As of March 2021, Georgina and her sister Prudence have successfully transitioned from public school to their new private academic institution at Malundu Secondary School in Kafue, Zambia.
A big and heartfelt thank you to everyone that has supported ObstaComer Scholarship fundraising efforts for Zambian orphans and marginalized children by purchasing my book "An Obstacomer's Journey Through Foresight and Hindsight" or by donating on GoFundMe. God bless you for your continued support and generosity.
The ObstaComer Mentorship Program speaker series was recently restructured without student audience, to accommodate lack of internet availability in both Zambia and Ghana. I will be conducting short videos periodically throughout the year on various topics that students can view at their leisure, and provide feedback via google forms.
The second speaker series was conducted on March 13, 2021 with Mrs. Islar from C&G Global Connections Travel.
I am thankful to her for participating in this program, and providing inspiring advice and lessons on "setting educational goals" that students will greatly benefit from.
The narrative of my book project has continued to unfold in ways I did not anticipate. Since the book launched in July 2020, several initiatives have been established including the ObstaComer Mentorship and Scholarship programs. I am excited to see what God will do next!
The ObstaComer Mentorship Program kicked off to an awesome start on November 21, 2020 with participants from the United States, Zambia, France, England and Barbados.
A heartfelt gratitude to Mr. Macodou N'Daw of iMac Realty, LLC on delivering an inspiring and imperative message on "Mindset for Success" to ObstaComer scholarship recipients and other students at New Children's Village in Zambia. His inspiring message was was not only fitting for kicking off the ObstaComer Mentorship Program, but proved to be beneficial to the extended audience in attendance.
Key Takeaways: The Mindset for Success Conversation with Macodou N'Daw, co-author of two best selling books, "Transfromed" and "Successonomics".
Mr. N'Daw not only shared with the students how to set goals using the "S.M.A.R.T" concept, but also encouraged the students by sharing his "ObstaComer" journey on how he migrated to the United States from Senegal via France, after much adversity during his youth, and ended up attaining an ivy league education against all odds.
A huge thank you to Mrs. Cleopatra Islar of C&G Global Travel Connections.
It was a joy to coordinate with Mrs. Islar to facilitate the first professional speaker series, and looking forward to more thought-provoking and inspiring future speaker series such as the one delivered by Mr. N'Daw.
The ObstaComer scholarship program was established in August 2020 in honor of my late parents, Mathew and Jean Mulenga. The program aims to support orphans, marginalized children and youth.
