I have been asked a lot lately about what I do. When you are involved in work that ignites your passion, this is a very exciting question to be asked. This opens up the lines of communication to share about the exciting updates in my day, the community in Kenya we are working with, the funds we so desperately need in order to move forward, and the concept that I think has the power to change the world. However, sometimes I can't help but notice the look of confusion or disbelief on the face of some people. As I explain the technology behind the LifeBox Containers, the different modules available, the Critical Needs Assessment that takes place beforehand, and the methods with which we get involved in a community in the first place, I know that sometimes I lose people. Intentions are always pure, I know this. But fact of the matter is, sometimes people ask what I do or how my job is going out of obligation or social appropriateness. That's okay. We've all been there. As I mentioned, though, when the work I'm doing everyday has the potential to save lives and impact global development, I can't help but take every opportunity to over share about how it's going.
I won't use this post as another vessel to talk about ACI or even the LifeBox Container. All of the information is on our website, and odds are if you're reading the blog, you've checked it out. What I will say though, from one individual to another, as a person who has volunteered for this organization long before I had to privilege to work for it full time, I believe in ACI. I have seen the success and the impact our President has had in developing communities. I know the amount of strategy and research and collaboration that has poured into the LifeBox Container model. And I've read messages from our partners in Kenya who are desperate for their opportunity to grow. This is life changing work. It's exciting and it's real. We are daily seeking support from individuals willing to share our information on social media, to talk about the LifeBox Container to your network, maybe to donate or become a partner.
I think it's important to have a thorough understanding behind the work that you do. To develop a foundation of knowledge and logic to support your work. This I have. However, outside of all of that, my heart is 100% invested because I believe in the LifeBox Container. And that, I believe, can not be argued.
