A seminar named ‘Sofolotar Golpo- Success Stories’ was organized by KK Foundation at its Shelter House Program (Joy Shokol Shishur) earlier this year on April 6, 2019. Ms. Layla Arjuman, a prominent motivational speaker of the country was the keynote speaker. She has also served as the Principal in three prominent Government High Schools of the country and has also authored a few books. As a special guest Ms. Farzana Rahman, Head, Retail Governance and Operation, Grameen Phone Limited graced the occasion.
As can be expected the children who are being supported by the shelter house program came from vulnerable backgrounds and in majority cases they suffer from stress, trauma, depression and other mental anxiety issues. Constant motivation and counselling is required for these children. In this regard, motivational speakers can inspire and stimulate the audience to make positive changes to their lives. Their speech not only motivates the children but also conveys the need the for essential life skills and provides successful case stories. Both the guests through their positive stories inspired the children in many ways. The participants also shared their experiences and expressed their feelings about the program. Senior officials of KK Foundation were also present in the seminar.
