Sr. Victoria coordinates 10,000 lay people with confidence after SLDI training
I am able to plan the activities of all Lay Movement members professionally and share it to all stakeholders through email, whatsApp and other means due to the knowledge that I have gained through the same programme.
I am Sr. Victoria Zimba SLDI Alumnae 2015. I attended SLDI Programme Administration Track 1. 2014 to 2015
Before and after attending this programme of SLDI I have held the position of Diocesan Lay Apostolate Coordinator in the Diocese of Karonga in Malawi, looking after 10, 000 lay people who are in Movements. I was assigned this position without training, which meant training on the job facing a number of challenges in the learning process. This is not the case though after the training. Now I know what I am supposed to do or not. I am working confidently and effectively.
I participated effectively in the development of the strategic plan of the Diocese because it was done during the time when we were learning how to develop strategic plan. I am able to plan the activities of all Lay Movement members professionally and share it to all stakeholders through email, whatsApp and other means due to the knowledge that I have gained through the same programme. This has helped in publicising the activities of the Lay Apostolate Office, and it has also helped us to build good relationship with our stakeholders since we all know the what, where, how, when etc of the activity ahead of us.
Now I am confidently helping the Lay Movement members to know and understand their calling and being able to respond to their call so as to live a happy life here on Earth and attain their goal which is to see the face of God after this life. This is all because of the help that I have been given through this programme.
Thanks a lot I really appreciate.
