Module 1 - Taking Stock
This constitutes Module 1 of the assignments to be completed for the QYL Mentorship Program. Thus far I have completed the Starting Assignment and Module 0. In which I was able to establish an overall look at what I want to accomplish with the EM Love Foundation.
ALL ABOUT ME
Creating a mission statement
1. Write down your idea in terms of “why”. Why is it important?
Take time to simplify the message as much as possible.
It is important to play a role in poverty eradication, because while I may be privileged there are others who do not have the same privilege. There is something grossly wrong with living comfortable without feeling the need to reach out and change the life of another. It is like climbing a ladder and breaking the glass ceiling, it then becomes my duty to reach back down and help as many people as possible. This is why it is important, because my privilege is as a result of someone reaching back to help my father not fall through the poverty gap, I owe it to the next person.
2. Now add how you achieve your “why”.
To be able to achieve poverty eradication, I need to launch into practical methods of poverty eradication. Due to the fact that the EM Love foundation is still young, at present we do so by initiative based events. However the long term goal is to have long lasting impact and standing initiatives that are not event based.
3. Lastly, write what it is that you do.
The Em Love Foundation plays a strategic role in poverty eradication, as a means to put an end to poverty in Namibia.
The purpose of EM Love is to reach out to lend a helping hand and try make a difference.in Namibia. This is by assisting charity organizations both known and un-known by the community, and create an awareness around these said organizations. They key aspect is to start somewhere in order to eradicate poverty in Namibia.
The function of Love is Charity is to form a bridge and create a platform for those that want to lend a helping hand to do just that. Companies, organizations, schools and individuals are urged to come forward and donate. Additionally, there are various initiatives that fall under the foundation.
Creating a lasting difference in the lives of the less fortunate.
Rallying towards the eradication of poverty in Namibia.

initial about me from the starting assignment
Mavis is a young philanthropist who is committed to helping underprivileged people in her community. She is the founder of the EM Love Foundation, whose work ranges from providing donated food and clothing to low-income families, to hosting fundraisers to children from disadvantaged backgrounds. Mavis now leads a team of seven directors, and has more than 40 volunteers working with her. She and her team have hosted a charity pop-up shop in collaboration with Street Store, a pop-up store that can be created in any community to enable the homeless to shop for free. In recognition of her community work, the First Lady of the Republic of Namibia invited Mavis to serve on her One Economy Foundation, which works to promote exclusivity between different communities, via programmes focused on education, violence and health.
about me using ethos pathos logos
I am a philanthropist with a great love for people. The quality that drives me is love, for people and for making difference. Since I was young, I have always been driven and set on striving for excellence, pushing boundaries and creating opportunities. I am about being a game changer and world-shaker, because I believe - "Those who are crazy enough to believe they can change the world are usually the ones who do." - Steve Jobs
In believing I can create change,I founded a charity organization called the Em Love Foundation initially known as Love is Charity. The foundation is my labor of love as it is through which I live out my passion, which is playing an active role in poverty eradication. Small efforts inevitably lead to big steps. I am a dreamer who believes in a better tomorrow where we do not have talented individuals falling through the poverty gap. To date the foundation has held 6 street tore across the country in 4 different towns in Namibia, it has over 150 volunteers across the country and has been able to establish credibility and respectability among our stakeholders.
