"After attending SLDI programme my life has changed, now I am able to deal with people by using the skills and knowledge l have gained... l am also able to write proposals which can convince the donor by using the knowledge l have gained from SLDI programme."

This project is directly addressing UN Sustainable Development Goal(s):

Sustainable Cities and Communities

I am Sister Colleta Bester from Malawi. I am one of the SLDI-ASEC Alumni of 2015. I was in Administration group, track one. I am so grateful to Hilton Foundation for giving access to many Religious Sisters in Africa and Malawi in particular to gain new skills and knowledge in Administration and Finance Management. Before SLDI –ASEC programme l had many challenges in life to give better services to all people I am serving. As a Vicaress and project manageress in the Congregation, it was very difficult for me to serve people from different cultures, different back grounds and also how to source funds for the sustainability of the Congregation. It was so hard for me.

After attending SLDI programme my life has changed, now I am able to deal with people by using the skills and knowledge l have gained from SLDI – ASEC programme and l am also able to write proposals which can convince the donor by using the knowledge l have gained from SLDI programme. After this course, the project committee wrote a proposal to Brothers and Sisters In need in Austria asking funds for buying a vehicle for the Formation house, it was successful-we got 28,000 Euro. With the skills and knowledge acquired through SLDI – ASEC program l shall never be the same. Stay blessed.
