One of my girlfriends and I were talking the other day about a family who has a mantra or a motto. There’s was pretty detailed and was almost like a constitution…my friend said, If we had one it would be ‘See people’.

I love that. Notice, see people, take an interest. In the language of the Good Samaritan story ‘Get off your donkey’, go out of your way, change your plans.

We live in a What’s In It For Me society. We are self absorbed, yet wired to be relational. We are getting fatter and sicker and are more medicated than ever, while science tells us that serving and giving, volunteering and working on behalf of someone else, is actually good for our health and longevity.

Today under the leadership of our fabulous Co-ordinator Urmila, our newly formed team on the ground in rural Fiji is meeting to talk through roles and responsibilities and ways to efficiently serve the girls we support there.

They are all volunteers; teachers, policemen, mums and school administrators. They see the people in their community and are mobilising to make a difference.

We’ll let you know the stories of change that come from their commitment.

I think at our core we are all saying See Me. We want to be seen and loved and given wings to fly. The beauty of really seeing others is that we open ourselves up to being seen as well.

We’d love you to join the ‘a Girl & her world’ journey,

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and our weekly blog,

Warmly,

Jane for team ‘a Girl & her world’
