"On a mission for world peace, health, and environmental sustainability!"
I have worked in the field of public health and preventive medicine for over 30 years with a focus on supporting & improving public health service systems for children & youth with disabilities at the state, natl. & intl. levels. I currently work to develop & implement practical, engaging strategies to help people engage in "3D" compassion (caring for others, self, and the Earth). I serve as Founder, Compassionate Austin; Leadership Team Member, Compassion Games Intl; & Education Program Associate, Charter for Compassion Intl. I'm an Organizer of the OpenIDEO Austin Chapter!!
The Facebook post by Linus Wafula (see the link below) says and shows it all! Linus and his dedicated volunteers work tirelessly to inspire and empower youth in Kenya for peace, green-living, and health.
The Olymp-i-a Challenge is a daily exercise of creativity for peace, green-living, and health. The Challenge engages children and youth in the practice of empathy, intentional awareness and creative expression. We grow stronger in what we practice!
Also, in addition to my comment below, thanks for being an active part of our OpenIDEO Austin Chapter and for reaching out to the Chapter and sharing your idea for this Challenge. We will be having upcoming Chapter events later in July and in August in which you can share your idea and hopefully gain valuable input, insights, and partnerships!
