Stanbic Bank Day Out

It is always amazing to have individuals and corporate institutions come down to the level of children to interact with them. Stanbic Bank Ghana Limited, since our inception in 2012, has always had a day out with our children on camp each year. As usual, the staff represented in their numbers and the impact they had on the children through their interactions, partnership and financial support was immeasurable.


This year, we were priviledged to have over 60 general volunteers and volunteer teachers who supported massively. All our volunteers were with us from the first day in camp till the very last day of the camp. Volunteers were put into various departments and their presence and participation in all the activities was an inspiration to the children.


Nneka World Changers Summer Camp 2018 would not have been a success without the invaluable support and partnership of some individuals and organizations. We say a big thank you to; Stanbic Bank Gh Ltd, Ashfaom Gh Ltd, Reach For Change, Japan Motors, Marie Stopes Gh, Olam Gh Ltd, Junior Graphic, Indomie, Shoprite, Feminine Star Africa, Miniplast, Qualiplast, Ghana Airforce. We also appreciate North Tongu District Assembly and Keta Municipal Assembly for providing buses to transport children from their district and municipality, to and from camp. We call on other Assemblies to also support in this way during our subsequent camps.

Identifying your Worth as a Woman

We have all been there: Feeling victimized by a friend, a boss or a lover who has treated us poorly or unfairly. It’s an easy and common tendency to blame the other, make yourself out as the innocent one, while seeking out particular people who will reaffirm that pain body within that encourages a “woe is me” mentality. But if you start to look back and analyze a bit, you may realize that the there is one common denominator in each scenario and situation. That common denominator is you. You allow people to treat you the way they do. Your energy, confidence and attitude is the currency that others will transact with. I know many women who have settled for less, and simply “accepted” cards dealt because deep inside, they don’t believe they deserve more. I’m sure you know of someone who seems to have it all together in their life, but when it comes to relationships, they just can’t seem to shake the habit of dating douche bags and douchettes. SELF–WORTH Worth can be defined as the value of something measured by its qualities or by the esteem in which it is held.” In short, worth equals value. Self-worth ultimately comes from within.

The value you place on yourself is the only type of worth you can control. WAYS TO IDENTIFY AND IMPROVE YOUR SELF-WORTH A study in the Journal of Social Issues found that college students who based their self-worth on appearance, academic performance, and approval of society were more likely to be stressed and frustrated. These students also had more relationship problems and academic issues, as well as higher use of drugs and alcohol. The same study also found that students who placed their self-worth on internal aspects—such as sticking to their morals—were generally happier and healthier. 1. COMPARE YOURSELF TO NO ONE Defining your worth from outside sources is a subconscious way of comparing yourself to specific standards set by others. Comparison is a foolproof way of ignoring the awesome things you have done or can do. When you compare yourself to others, you’re measuring your worth by their terms. But what about your own? This can be difficult when social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram,etc provide a constant reminder of the achievements of others. A study by the Public Library of Science found that increased Facebook use undermines subjective well-being. The more individuals saw the achievements of their peers, the less satisfied they were with their own lives. You determine how outside factors influence your inner sense of value. When you base your self-worth on external sources, you tread down a

risky path. Your own terms are the only ones that matter. Every person has walked a different path to get where they are today. Instead of measuring your worth based on another person’s scale; concentrate on what is meaningful to you. 2. STOP NEGATIVE SELF-TALK It is easy to be depressed, angry and anxious with self-doubt but quieting your inner critic shows self-kindness and compassion that lets you live life to your full potential. Positive thinking does not only mean having happy thoughts but it also means responding to negative emotions in productive and healthy way. 3. EMBRACE YOUR MISTAKES AND LEARN FROM THEM There are no mistakes in life; only lessons. What this means is that whenever something happens, there is a

gem for you to learn from. Mistakes elicit feelings of shame and regret. But like most things, it depends on how you look at it. Though we can’t change the past, we can control how we handle those mistakes. If you can learn to accept mistakes, shortcomings, and unwanted events as opportunities for learning and personal growth, then you’ll feel less stressed and fearful, you’ll be more confident and self-assured. 4. TAKE OPPORTUNITIES TO DEVELOP YOURSELF Our life is full of opportunities. One can even say that life itself is one big opportunity. Regardless of your career level, there is always room for improvement. You can consider the following; Read books and blogs on topics that are meaningful to you. Seek out events, lectures, and workshops on subjects you care about. Take up fitness class for health benefits Get involved with an NGO or join a committee Find a mentor
