Welcome to our Staff Spotlight! We'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our staff members. This month we are spotlight Margaret Mwila Kasoma.

1. What is your role with MWP?


My role with MWP is that of a Clinical Team Member.


2. What makes you passionate about the work you do?


What makes me passionate about my work is the fact that I work to help people move from a position of desperation to a more hopeful and productive life.


3. Why MWP?


While there are a lot of organisations carrying out interventions in trying to find solutions to effects of trauma and the prevention of the spread of HIV, MWP has included a very important component of teaching the participants entrepreneurship. This I believe will promote resilience in most of the clients and will bring out the best outcomes.


4. What makes you smile?


When I see my client change from hopelessness to believing in helpful possibilities, I smile.

5. What makes you laugh?


The moment a client starts seeing the problem in a different light and is able to talk about it in a more positive way that will bring laughter to me.


6. What makes you feel at peace?


I am at peace when I get to accomplish my task correctly and in good time

Welcome to our Staff Spotlight! We'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our staff members. This month we are spotlight Molly Herrmann, the Treasurer of the Board here at Moving Well Project.

 

1. What is your role with MWP?

I am the Treasurer of the Board at MWP.

2. What makes you passionate about the work you do?

I find the mission at MWP to be essential and manageable. The mission is grounded in method and specific data, as opposed to far-reaching, overarching missions that feel unwieldy.

3. Why MWP?


MWP’s focus on addressing mental health services to vulnerable communities aligns with my personal and professional values. Over the years, there has been increasing awareness on the importance of addressing and treating mental health, not just physical health. I’m proud to be part of a team that is forward thinking and is impassioned by empowering vulnerable communities to live healthier lives.

4. What makes you smile?


I smile when interacting with people and learning from people I have just met. The importance of human connection has become glaringly apparent over the past two years and so anytime I am in the presence of people, I smile.


5. What makes you laugh?


I laugh a great deal because it is a universal way to connect. Sharing a laugh is important and bridges many barriers.


6. What makes you feel at peace?


I am at peace when I am acting with purpose.
