Dit is ‘m!
Mijn eerst werkplek toen ik 12 jaar was.
Schoenen en kleding in de juiste rekken hangen.
Toen al gevoelig voor collega’s die er bewust de kantjes vanaf liepen.
Daarentegen ontzettend blij dat ik zo nu en dan klanten mocht helpen met het oplossen of doorverwijzen, als zij vragen hadden.
Grappig, er zat toen al een #maatschappelijkwerker in me 🙂
Wat ik me ook nog zo goed herinner is hoe bijzonder ik het vond dat ik door te werken iets heel moois terugkreeg: vrijheid in de vorm van goudgele guldens!
Yep I’m a gulden-girl 🙋♀️
Weet jij nog wat jou eerste baantje was en wat jij er leuk of minder leuk aan vond?
Merk je dat nu nog steeds op in je huidige werk of baan?
Let me know :)
We understand that plastic waste is as hazardous for the world as crime against humanity. Every year, Kannaginagar, a taunami settlement built over the converted marsh land gets flooded during rain, just cause multiple drainage systems get clogged with plastics and other waste. In other hand, the women in Kannaginagar hardly has any dignified work opportunity. This is a place where only 9% children goes to school. We found a sustainable solution of the same. We imparted free training to 360 crime effected women of Kannaginagar into recycling plastics and developing an unique product called ‘buddy bin’, a bin made out of waste plastics.
To recognise the effort, Commissioner of Police Dr. Vishwanathan invited us at his office yesterday. It is indeed a new leap to all our women to get recognised.
I am not a label, I am Joe.
As a youth worker in Singapore, I must confess that often times we have witnessed how labelling works in our society, sometimes intentional, sometimes subconsciously. The frequent question that I am being posed with by different ones is, "So what's the most challenging issue with young people these days?" With that question, it presupposes that young people have problems and really big ones. It presupposes that my job is primarily to deal with problems of young people. It presupposes that I have to fix them and I also must be able to justfiy how I did it because that becomes a proof of my professionalism and knowledge as a professional.
And with this, what translates onto our day to day is the sub-conscious where we put young people back into where they are "supposed" to be or what we like to term as "back on track". But honestly, I really don't feel the need for them to be back on track all the time or at least not immediately within the "official" time frame of 6 - 12 months which many agencies like to operate on.
The other thing that kicks in subconsciously is the labels that use on young people. And these labels are even being justified by societal norms like "out of school youths", "at - risk youths", "school dropouts" etc etc.
So as youth workers within such a system, the challenge and struggle is real because if one were to work with the system and be seen as professional in our own rights, then we must be real good at getting these youths to fit in, to blend in, to become ok. We then open them as case under XXX programme and then we follow the SOPs and hopefully meet all the checklist items by 6 or 12 months and then close the case.
So my point is this. If we want to give our young people a chance out and not come under the effects of labelling and stigmatisation, we who are in various official agencies and charities need to be mindful and intentional on how we carry out our care and work. We shouldn't be blind to their issues and struggles but we shouldn't also be too quick and hurried to get them to "fit" in.

Social workers aim to improve people’s lives by helping with social and interpersonal difficulties, promoting human rights and wellbeing. Social workers protect children and adults with support needs from harm. From helping keep a family under pressure together to supporting someone with mental health problems, social work is a varied, demanding, often emotional and very rewarding career.
Social workers work with a number of people at any one time. This is often referred to as a caseload. Day-to-day work involves assessing people’s needs, strengths and wishes, working with individuals and families directly to help them make changes and solve problems, organising support, making recommendations or referrals to other services and agencies, and keeping detailed records.

//I am in Arunachal now and trying my best to make a vlog of the places which are not much under a spotlight or in the list of any tourist destination but it will surely give you the insights of Arunachal.. Arunachal is much more than a magnificent landscape and more than Tawang or Ziro. I can't wait to share them with you guys.
Stay update for my video & till then you can watch my stories. //
Yesterday I thanked to my God for strengthening me in a bad day.
🦋 In this morning, I wake up with my joy of praise because I have a home to be sheltered, some food on my table to be fed, and a family to be supported. 🦋Do you know what I did from yesterday? I did not even complain nor cry when I was forced to move to another table. I faced and overcame to teach people how to talk to me directly.
🦋 With that, I had no problem to move because my faith takes me into a new road. I blessed this homeless man with some food and good water including a few napkins. 🦋Who complains now? Do not be so greedy and selfish but generosity wisely with God's love. Just surrender all, and let God be!
🦋Happy Sunday! -- 2018AvaDaisy💋
There are many reasons you may be drawn to a career in social work. Some people become interested in social work because they have been helped by a social worker in the past or they have experienced hardship and would like to help others overcome similar struggles. You may be drawn to the field by a particular interest in addressing problems such as addiction, abuse, or mental illness. You may have a strong interest in working with children or with elders. Despite the varied paths that lead social workers to the profession, most social workers enjoy working with people and are driven by their desire to help others and make the world a better place.. .
Substance use is a spectrum.
One end is sober and on the other end is chronic & debilitating use.
There so many reasons, or whys, people use substances. Some use it to party.
Some use it to escape the pain of life.
It came come from a healthy place or a traumatic one.
And sometimes it can go from a happy place to a traumatic one.
We have to ask that fundamental question before you can do anything.
What is the why?
Being a student intern, sometimes I wonder if I am really making an impact, I wonder if I am choosing the right career path, and I debate if I can handle the mental and emotional stress of being a social worker... then this happens. Interning at a battered women’s shelter, these women come in broken, usually with barely anything because they are escaping. Seeing them grow, get stronger, build their esteem and lives into something THEY want is one of the most amazing things to witness. Days like today make me realize- I am in the right field and I am making an impact and tho the days may be hard, sleepless, and emotional- with the support of my family, friends and using self reflection- I can handle this! Life is such a beautiful thing and watching someone transpire and blossom and knowing you were honored to be a part of that positivity for them is a priceless feeling. #socialworkerlife#dogood#bepositive#payitforward#bekind#bethechange#socialwork
Hi followers! Finally I am bringing a face to Soulitude Thoughts. This is me.
I figured I would reveal the person behind the writing. Thank you thank you for your positive & warm messages about my writing.
A little background about me, I am 26 living in San Antonio, Texas. I am a graduate student pursuing my Master’s in #SocialWork . In my down time I am listing to music (helps me with some of my inspiration), writing (obviously, ha), working out, smoking hookah or reading. I am a pretty simple, humble and sarcastic girl.
If you have any more questions for me please don’t hesitate to ask. Or if you just need to talk to someone, I’m here!
To my fellow writers, keep writing, keep creating and fear less. xx.
