Focus on Building houses and healthy communities. This week Book Session, Upcoming workshop at Chit Chat and this week tips

Posted on August 13, 2018 at 4:10 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog we will expand on a “Konbibensha”-project at Zapateer’s newest housing project, that was constructed via FKP in collaboration with the Ministery of Social Affairs and the Ministery of Urban and Physical Planning of the government of Curaçao; we will invite you to our next Master Your Mind-platform session on Thursday the 16th of August; we will invite you to our next workshop at Chit Chat at Mensing’s Caminada on the 23rd of August titled “Breaking the cycle of self-sabotaging behavior”and we will end by sharing some personal coaching links focused on “Intention”. Every day we will upload one of these video-links on our Facebook.com/share2uplift page.


Zapateer newest project, Building houses and healthy communities ('Konbibensha')

As we are interested in initiatives aimed at enabling changed mindsets of people in Curaçao, we approached FKP and interviewed them on one of their most recent projects, the 3-story housing project at Zapateer.

In this project, 72 appartments consisting of 2 or 3 rooms, are being offered to some of their clients divided in three groups of which the first group is already living in the new complex. As the other appartments will come available, the other two groups of habitants selected, are moving in the appartments.


This housing project at Zapateer is part of a joint program financed by the Ministries of Social Affairs and the Urban and Physical planning of the government of Curaçao and F.K.P. This program aims at constructing 134 houses in Zapateer, Montagne and Terra Korra. In Zapateer 72 units appartments were constructed.

Zapateer is in many ways very innovative because,
1. it was constructed adjacent to middle income houses;
2. it was the first time that FKP used 3-stories, the highest up to now were 2-story buildings;
3. it was the fiist time the habitants were thoroughly prepared before they moved in these appartments.

Arthur Con (CEO of FKP): “ We belief that by combining social housing projects with middle income housing, we will contribute in integrating different social groups. We don’t see any problems in that, because when I went to school, there was also an integration of youth from different social backgrounds that took place, so we belief this is also a way to break social barriers. Furthermore we have invested and will continue to pay attention to what we call community building “Konbibensha” via information sessions and follow up sessions offered to the new habitants in this project”.

Andira Kwidama (Manager Customer Service Operations FKP): “Scarcity of available land has challenged FKP to look a multiple story appartments to deal with the lack of sufficient social housing in Curaçao, but in a way this was also a challenge as we are not accustomed to live in multi-story building in Curaçao. This challenged us to do some additional work to prepare the future habitants to live in this project. This is why FKP, the Ministries of Social Affairs and Urban and Physical Planning in a multi disciplinary group did some extra preparatory work before the new habitants could move to their appartments”. “We considered it very important to prepare these new habitants, so our multi disciplinary group offered them information sessions as of February this year during 9 weeks from 6 pm to 9 pm. We are happy to say, that the attendance and motivation was high and there was an active participation of the habitants.



The information sessions were on:
• Budgettting;
• Healthy eating;
• Safety issues required by the Fire-department;
• Security issues;
• For parents of children between 2 and 12 years, also “upbringing and education”;
• Building healthy communities or “Konbibensha”;
• Rules of FKP on how to take good care of their appartment.


The new habitants were carfefully selected from FKP’s waiting list (8000 people) based on the following criteria.They needed to:
• be on the FKP-waiting list;
• have an urgent need for housing;
• be officially registred as inhabitants in Curaçao;
• have an income,
• compulsory participation in the information sessions during the preaparotory phase before they could move to their appartments;
• be an reflection of our society, representing different age groups, workers and elderly to have a balanced group to mention some of the criteria we used and we also took their overall social needs into consideration;

“The selection of the new habitants in the project was not an easy task, because of course we want to help as many as possible people on the waitinglist, but in the Zapateerproject only 72 appartments were available”.


What are your experiences up to now with the project?
“We have asked the first group to evaluate the first information sessions we offered and based on that, we have made some adjustment to improve these sessions. For example we are paying more attention now in the session for the second and third group, that are underway to: Hygiene & environment; ethics and more in depth attention to budgetting”.

“We have had to select some new habitants after some that were selected oiriginally failed to attend regularly the information sessions. But we have noticed a great deal of appreciation from those whom finished and already started to live in the appartments”.

“We have also noticed that some of those we selected originally, needed to be placed in different housing projects, there are some that have financial issues like, they can’t afford the extra rent and costs of utilities, but we are learning as we go. It is our firm intention to continue to work in Montagne and Terra Korra in a multi disciplinary group, because we are convinced that this is the best way, we can improve our clients “konbibensha” and quality of life. We also are very considerate when allocating the appartments to those whom are of older age or have mobility issues, they get the ground floor appartments”.

‘To guarantee a system to monitor the execution of what we planned, we have upfront made a profile of an administrator for the complex. We selected an administrator from our waitinglist and that person participated in all the information sessions and also is one of the habitants. They know whom is the administrator.

The role of the chosen administrator is to be the first person the habitants will approach if the are maintenance issues and also the administrator will look after the compliance of the FKP rules regarding the housing projects.

Furthermore the multi-disciplinary group will continue to have follow up sessions and by doing this we aim to improve compliance and aim to contribute to a healthy community ('Konbibensha').

“This innovative approach was a challenge for us (FKP) in another sense, because it required intense collaboration between the different stakeholders, like SOAW, “Familie & Jeugd”, Skuchami, Fire Department, Ministry of Urban and Physical Planning, but also close collaboration within different departments in FKP. On a weekly basis we have feedback sessions so we can learn to improve the service to our clients.

We are aware that we need to continue our efforts to achieve complaince, but we have anticipated this challenge by informing the habitants of the consequences if there is a failure of compliance. After two warnings in the third warning there will be sanctions. Further more like in every “bario”, this project also has its social worker and together with the administrator we are confident that we have taken enough pre-cautionary measures to guarantee a good “konbibensha”. For our workers this has been a very satisfying experience, being able to improve the quality of life of our clients. Although we are aware of the fact that there are more people in need, the first steps in this new innovative approach were taken”.

As the coregroup opf Share2Uplift we commend all those involved for the innovative way they approached the Zapateer-project and also be the way they have created a system to evaluate and monitor the development within this project.


The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018
As the Share2Uplift movement our goal for 2018 is to identify 250 ethical leaders (Influencers) to be empowered by 21st century mindsets and are connected and collaborate with one another to create value for the whole of the society.

As Share2Uplift we are fully trying to align with this thinking of Center for Curriculum Redesign to promote this agenda in our educational systems and workplace. So, in that sense we fully support any initiative to make our educational system 21st century proof.
Share2Uplift aligners are those that:
– Create an inspiring vision of the future;
– Motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision;
– Manage delivery of the vision;
– Coach and built a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision.

These criteria are now being polished.

We also consider these 5 values of the most important ones for Share2Uplift aligners. They are:
• Peace from within;
• Compassion;
• Respectfulness;
• Integrity;
• Responsibility.
As we will progress towards this goal we will update you on the progress.

Positive Psycholog, upcoming upcoming Master Your Mind-platform session en this week tips

Posted on August 6, 2018 at 4:20 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (6th – 13th of August) we will expand on the benefits of using Positive Psychology; we will invite you our next upcoming Master Your Mind-platform session and we will share some personal tips presented as video links based on Positive Psychology. Every single day we will upload a video-link on our Facebook.com/share2uplift page.



What is positive psychology and why is it important?

As we are working with different organizations and with different coachees, we have noticed a commonality that we call “the collective consciousness in Curaçao”. These coachees as Influencers, are consistently working on worthwhile personal and organizational goals, while dealing with all kinds of obstacles and resistances of those whom don’t want to change. All are making effective progress towards their goals against all odds and despite resistance. We are studying to identify what makes them successful to “formulate best practices in Curacao” on how to become successful in one’s personal and business life. While we were doing this, we explored, searched and found that “Positive Psychology” has many useful benefits to enable these Influencers in their endeavours to bring along more effectively positive changes in their personal life, in their respective organizations and ultimately in Curaçao. We want to share the benefits of Positive Psychology with you.

Here are some high lights, but we highly suggest to take notice of the complete article which we used as source: positivepsychologyprogram.com/what-is-positive-psychology-definition/



Definition: “Positive psychology is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living.” (Peterson, 2008. Positive psychology is a scientific approach to studying human thoughts, feelings, and behavior with a focus on strengths instead of weakness, building the good in life instead of repairing the bad, and taking the lives of average people up to “great” instead of focusing solely on moving those who are struggling up to “normal” (Peterson, 2008. Positive psychology focuses on the positive events and influences in life, including:
1. Positive experiences (like happiness, joy, inspiration, and love)
2. Positive states and traits (like gratitude, resilience, and compassion)
3. Positive institutions (applying positive principles within entire organizations and institutions)


As a field, positive psychology spends much of its time thinking about topics like character strengths, optimism, life satisfaction, happiness, well-being, gratitude, compassion (as well as self-compassion), self-esteem and self-confidence, hope, and elevation. These topics are studied in order to learn how to help people flourish and live their best lives.
This subfield of psychology is dated since 1998 and initiated by Martin Seligman when he became president of the American Psychological Association calling for a greater focus on the positive in life.

The foundational paper of this new field, positive psychology, was published in 2000 by Seligman and the “founding father” of flow, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. The question “what is wrong with people” has guided the thinking of many researchers and dominated countless scientific studies during the 20th century. It is hard to deny that this entails an important question. In our attempts to answer the question, we as psychologists have gained more understanding of many illnesses and have developed effective treatments for a wide range of problems. However, as an inevitable consequence of our focus on the negative aspects of well-being and health, such as distress and disease, we developed an almost exclusive attention to pathology. We believe that science has focused disproportionately on pathology and repair, and devoted relatively little attention to factors that “make life worth living.” The focus is making a shift. As the 21st century unfolds, however, in positive psychology they are beginning to ask a different question: “What is right about people?”.

The greatest potential benefit of positive psychology is that,

1. It teaches us the power of shifting one’s perspective. This is the focus of many techniques, exercises, and even entire programs based on positive psychology, because a relatively small change in one’s perspective can lead to astounding shifts in well-being and quality of life. Injecting a bit more optimism and gratitude into your life is a simple action that can give you a radically more positive outlook on life. Positive psychology was not established to replace traditional psychology, but to complement it with a positive bias that’s just as strong as psychology’s negative bias over the last several decades.

2. People overestimate the impact of money on their happiness by quite a lot. It does have some influence, but not nearly as much as we might think, so focusing less on attaining wealth will likely make you happier (Aknin, Norton, & Dunn, 2009).

3. Spending money on experiences provides a bigger boost to happiness than spending money on material possessions (Howell & Hill, 2009).

4. Gratitude is a big contributor to happiness in life, suggesting that the more we cultivate gratitude, the happier we will be (Seligman, Steen, Park, & Peterson, 2005).

5. Oxytocin may provoke greater trust, empathy, and morality in humans, meaning that giving hugs or other shows of physical affection may give you a big boost to your overall well-being (and the well-being of others; Barraza & Zak, 2009).

6. Those who intentionally cultivate a positive mood to match the outward emotion they need to display (i.e., in emotional labor) benefit by more genuinely experiencing the positive mood. In other words, “putting on a happy face” won’t necessary make you feel happier, but putting in a little bit of effort likely will (Scott & Barnes, 2011).

7. Happiness is contagious; those with happy friends and significant others are more likely to be happy in the future (Fowler & Christakis, 2008.

8. People who perform acts of kindness towards others not only get a boost in well-being, they are also more accepted by their peers (Layous, Nelson, Oberle, Schonert-Reichl, & Lyubomirsky, 2012).

9. Volunteering time to a cause you believe in improves your well-being and life satisfaction and may even reduce symptoms of depression (Jenkinson et al., 2013).

10. Spending money on other people results in greater happiness for the giver (Dunn, Aknin, & Norton, 2008.



Effect in the workplace:

11. Positive emotions boost our job performance.

12. Positive emotions in the workplace are contagious, which means one positive person or team can have a ripple effect that extends through the entire organization.

13. Small, simple actions can have a big impact on our happiness, meaning that it doesn’t take much to encourage your workplace to become a happier and more positive place (Kjerulf, 2016).

One of the most important benefits of practicing a positive psychological outlook is, to put it broadly…

14. Success! Not only does success make us happier, feeling happy and experiencing positive emotions actually increases our chances of success (Lyubomirsky, King, & Diener, 2005).

However, don’t assume that refusing to brook any encroachment of negative emotions or outlooks will help you reach success.

15. An important finding from positive psychology research is that forcing people who are not naturally optimists to “just think positively” can do more harm than good; unrealistic optimism is detrimental, along with intense pessimism (del Valle & Mateos, 2008; Dillard, Midboe, & Klein, 2009).

Another broad benefit of the positive psychology movement is a more well-defined idea of what “the good life” is. Renowned positive psychologist Roy F. Baumeister and colleagues took on the challenge of determining what makes a good life, and they found some interesting findings that you can apply to your own life (2013). Their research showed that happiness and a sense of meaning in life do not necessarily go hand-in-hand, indicating that focusing on positive emotions alone will not bring the fulfilling and satisfying life you crave. Some of their more specific findings included the following:

16. The satisfaction of one’s wants and needs boost happiness, but have virtually no impact on meaningfulness; this indicates that focusing on obtaining what you want will increase your happiness, but you may have to supplement to get a deeper sense of meaning.

17. Happiness is present-oriented, rooted in the moment, while meaningfulness is more focused on the past and future and how they link to the present; this finding suggests that you can focus on the present to increase your happiness, but you might consider thinking more about your past and future to find meaning.

18. “Givers” experience more meaning, while “takers” experience more happiness; if you find yourself lacking in meaning, try giving back to others, but if you are lacking in happiness, try being accepting of others’ generosity to give yourself a boost.

19. Worry, stress, and anxiety are more likely to be felt by those whose lives are high in meaningfulness and low in happiness; this indicates that you shouldn’t get too down about experiencing negative emotions if you have a strong sense of meaning—a little negative emotion can actually be a good thing!

20. An intention to express your authentic self and a sense of strong personal identity is linked to meaning, but not to happiness; if you are searching for meaning, try working on your practice of authenticity.



As University of Michigan professor and positive psychology legend Christopher Peterson put it:

“…positive psychology is not to be confused with untested self-help, footless affirmation, or secular religion—no matter how good these may make us feel. Positive psychology is neither a recycled version of the power of positive thinking nor a sequel to The Secret.” (2008 )

Peterson goes on to outline the theories and concepts that have resulted from research so far (up to 2008, anyway):


• For the most part, most people are happy.

• Happiness is one of the causes of the good things in life, and also promotes more happiness.

• Most people are pretty resilient.

• Happiness, character strengths, and good social relationships act as buffers against disappointments and setbacks.

• Crises reveal character.

• Other people matter (in terms of what makes life worth living)

• Religion matters (and/or spirituality)

• Work also matters in terms of making life worth living, as long as we are engaged and draw meaning and purpose from it.

• Money has diminishing returns on our happiness after a certain point, but we can buy some happiness by spending money on other people.

Eudaimonia (well-being, deeper form of satisfaction than happiness) is more important than hedonism (sole focus on pleasure and positive emotions) for living the good life.

• The “heart” matters more than the “head,” meaning that things like empathy and compassion are just as important as critical thinking.

• Nearly all good days have three things in common: a sense of autonomy, competence, and connection to others.

• The good life can be taught.

For an overview of some of the most salient theories and concepts in positive psychology, the website www.positivepsychology.org.uk offers a great “mind map” of the field here. We’ll also cover a couple of the biggest topics later in this piece.

In general, the goals of positive psychology in coaching are as follows:

• To positively impact the client’s life – this goal is above all others, and all others feed indirectly into this goal. The number one goal of coaching in general is to improve the client’s life, and positive psychology coaching is no different.

• Increase the client’s experience of positive emotions.

• Help clients identify and develop their strengths and unique talents.

• Enhance the client’s goal-setting and goal-striving abilities.

• Build a sense of hope into the client’s perspective.

• Cultivate the client’s sense of happiness and well-being.

• Nurture a sense of gratitude in the client.

• Help the client build and maintain healthy, positive relationships with others.

• Encourage the client to maintain an optimistic outlook.

• Help the client learn to savor every positive moment (Mentor Coach, n.d.; Peppercorn, 2014).

You can probably easily see why the first goal is the biggest, and basically subsumes all the other goals. Each of Goals 2 through 10 can be considered milestones on the way to Goal 1—effective techniques and objectives that help the client and coach work their way towards the client’s biggest life goals.


An Introduction to the PERMA Model
The PERMA model is a widely recognized and influential model in positive psychology. Seligman proposed this model to help explain and define well-being in greater depth.

“PERMA” is an acronym for the five facets of well-being according to Seligman:

• P – Positive Emotions: Even though seeking positive emotions alone is not a very effective way to boost your well-being, experie
ncing positive emotion is still an important factor. Part of well-being is enjoying yourself in the moment, i.e., experiencing positive emotions.

• E – Engagement: Having a sense of engagement, in which we may lose track of time and become completely absorbed in something we enjoy and excel at, is an important piece of well-being. It’s hard to have a developed sense of well-being if you are not truly engaged in anything you do.

• R – (Positive) Relationships: Humans are social creatures, and we rely on connections with others to truly flourish. Having deep, meaningful relationships with others is vital to our well-being.

• M – Meaning: Even someone who is deliriously happy most of the time may not have a developed sense of well-being if they do not find meaning in their life. When we dedicate ourselves to a cause or recognize something bigger than ourselves, we experience a sense of meaning that there is simply no replacement for.

• A – Accomplishment / Achievement: We all thrive when we are succeeding, achieving our goals, and bettering ourselves. Without a drive to accomplish and achieve, we are missing one of the puzzle pieces of authentic well-being (Seligman, 2011).

This model gives us a comprehensive framework for understanding well-being as well as a foundation for improving well-being. If you’re looking to enhance your own sense of authentic happiness and well-being, all you need to do is focus on…

• Experiencing more positive emotions; do more of the things that make you happy, and bring enjoyment into your daily routine.

• Working on upping your engagement; pursue hobbies that interest you, develop your skills, and look for a job more suited to your passions, if necessary.

• Improve the quality (and/or quantity) of your relationships with others; work on building more positive and supportive relationships with your friends, family, and significant other(s).

• Seek out meaning; if you don’t find it through your work, look for it in volunteering opportunities, personal hobbies or leisure activities, or acting as a mentor for others.

• Keep your focus on achieving your goals—but don’t focus too hard; try to keep your ambition in balance with all of the other important things in life (Seligman, 2011).

Each of these five aspects of the PERMA model are measurable, and each is vital for an overall sense of well-being. This model pushes past the older model of authentic happiness in its consideration of more than just happiness or positive emotions. Of course, positive emotions are important—they’re part of the PERMA model itself, after all—but focusing just on positive emotions will not help you to develop a comprehensive sense of well-being, including engagement, meaning, success, and positive relationships with others.

Happiness alone will likely not propel you towards flourishing, but well-being will.

Expanding on Joseph Jaworski,Upcoming Master Your Mind-platform session and this week Happiness Tips

Posted on July 30, 2018 at 3:00 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (30th of July till the 5th of August) we will expand on Joseph Jaworski’s Why, What and How he wants to enable the world to create their own collective future; we will invite you for our upcoming next Master Your Mind-platform session on the 16th of August and we will share with you some personal coaching tips as video links on Happiness. Every day we will upload a video on Facebook.com/share2uplift.



Level IV leadership needed according to Joseph Jaworski

After reading his books Synchronicity, the Inner path to leadership and SOURCE, the inner path to knowledge creation, and after watching several interviews with Jaworski, we have distilled the WHY, WHAT and HOW of his school of thought (go to Joseph Jaworski « Berrett-Koehler on Vimeo to learn how his thoughts developed over the years) and how this can be helpful to our goals as the core group of Share2Uplift.

Why? The complexity, speed and intensity we have to deal with in the world is increasing. There are at least 28 combinatorial changes taking place at this moment that are transformational and disruptive and this is challenging us as human beings in ways we have never experienced before. Check this link out.

Jaworski explains his approach in a simple way as follows:

“Underneath the manifest Explicate reality is an Implicate order (un-manifest world). This is a field of active information, it is where the SOURCE resides. Go to this link Joseph Jaworski « Berrett-Koehler on Vimeo vimeo.com/20720335 29.12 - 35.33 minutes where Jaworski himself explains this approach).





“The way it works is, there is dialogue with the Universe when you become adequate to do this you, there is a way to tap in the field of active information. To bring it from the Implicate to the Explicate. There is a way to do it and there are certain conditions you have to fulfill to get there. There is a two-way dialogue, this is where the creativity comes from. You gain information from source you work with it, you feedback what it is that you gained and you get back more data. (indwelling) It is the opposite of the scientific method. Information plays a simple role in the Universe. In the traditional: there were 2 big elements: Matter and Energy. Emerging now, there is 3rd simple element, Information.

This will be the next big thing in the next 20 years or so. The creation of new knowledge (ROBERT JOHN/ MICHAEL POLANYI) not the management of knowledge, can literally change the world. We have access to gain this information that literally changes the world, that is facing a complexity that is accelerating in a way we have never experienced in history of mankind. By the creation of new knowledge, we can survive.

What? There is a new leadership needed according to Jaworski to deal with the never-ending stream of challenges. It is a different and deeper way of knowing and accessing our intuition, rather than analytical thought. It is needed, so we can collectively shape our future, whereby people are no longer victim, but participate in creating new circumstances, continually deepening their understanding of reality and become more capable in participating in the unfolding of the world. He calls it stage IV leadership. These leaders are aware of and utilize SOURCE.


Level 3 leaders, also called servant leaders, apply a set of practices that enriches the lives of individuals, the organization and the world. These servant leaders turn the power pyramid upside down.






Level 4 leaders on the other hand choose to serve life and allow life to unfold through them.

They are able to create meaningful coincidences of two or more events, where something other than the probability of chance is involved. This re-creation happens on an individual but also in a group. In the beautiful flow of these moments it seems as if we are being helped by hidden hands. “Being in the groove” or “In the Zone”.




How?Jaworski’s approach is based on 4 principles: 

Principle # 1: There is an open and emergent quality to the universe. A group of simple components can suddenly re-emerge at a higher level of self-organization as a new entity with new properties.

Principle # 2: The universe is a domain of undivided wholeness; both the material world and consciousness are parts of the same undivided whole. Everything in the universe, including human intentions and ways of being, affects everything else, because everything is part of the same whole.

Principle # 3: There is a creative source of infinite potential enfolded in the universe. Connection to this source leads to the emergence of new realities – discoveries, creation, renewal, and transformation. We are partners in the unfolding of the universe.

Principle # 4: Humans can learn to draw from the infinite potential of the source by choosing to follow a disciplined path toward self-realization and love, the most powerful energy in the universe. The path may include teachings from ancient traditions developed over thousands of years, contemplative practices, and direct exposure to the generative process of nature.



On an individual level the access to the Source can be a sudden illumination; an illumination that arises when someone has been trying over time to solve a tough issue; a knowing that suddenly occurs from SOURCE and an individual can be living and working from SOURCE on an everyday basis. To be able to create meaning full coincidences, Synchronicity, it is necessary to shift from resignation to possibility and to have enough courage to act in an instant. It takes courage to listen to inner knowing. There is no doubt, there is excitement, clarity, anticipation, absolute certainty. But it is also necessary to practice:

• Contemplative Practices = which is meditation, the first aspect is concentration which brings calmness and stability of mind to the practitioner, concentration leads to the second level which mindfulness allows the practitioner to see greater relationships among things and gives him access to a far greater range of information a truly generative place (go to Bringing Meditation into Business – YouTube.

• Journal and practice self-reflection;

• As an important complement to meditation is energy practice for cultivation of universal energy like qigong, tai chi, Aikido storing and accumulating qi in the body strengthening the intuition;

• Spending time in nature: An important portal to personal development that enables access to SOURCE, walks in solitude and go to the deeper regions of consciousness.

Developing a whole organization to a stage 4 level requires these actions:
• Focusing on the growth of the senior team and a critical mass of change leaders to demonstrate commitment and trigger multiplier effects;
• Refining and reaffirming the organization’s guiding ideas and basic assumptions;
• Focusing on the critical three to five shifts needed to unlock the potential of the organization. Gives coherence to the undertaking.
• Magnify the positive attitudes, behaviors and practices that already exist and facilitating an expanded view of individual and organizational potential to do more of those;
• Cascading opportunities for personal growth and development throughout the organization, scaffolding practices become imbedded in the fabric of the day-to-day life of the enterprise.


Intel’s Fab11 project, Intel’s biggest semiconductor fabrication facility, and the largest “fab” of its kind in the world. David Marsing, the project’s general manager, spent six months developing the people at Fab11 before the project construction began. This early training was designed to enable people to start to use a different part of their brain and develop an awareness that leads to unique solutions. The training covered

1. Senge’s 5 Disciplines (Systems Thinking, Shared Vision, Mental Models, Personal Mastery and Team Learning).
2. Dialogue practices based on the work of quantum physicist, David Bohm.
3. Development of capacity of good listening, balancing advocacy, and inquiry.
4. Human dynamics training – personality and team integration.
5. Contemplative practices including meditation to manage stress and develop greater intuitive capacity.

• The results were that Fab11 went from start-up to full-volume production in record time enabling Intel to recoup its $2.5 billion investment in just 5 short months instead of the expected several years, as was the norm.

Another way of explaining this process is called the U-process
(check this link Joseph Jaworski Zin in werk – YouTube) consisting of the seven core practices of the new U-process for generative discovery:
1. Preparation: undertaking a disciplined path of inner self-management;
2. Igniting passion: making a firm commitment to pursue the inquiry, the solution might exist as a hidden possibility;
3. Observing and immersing: Seeing reality with fresh eyes, suspending judgment and immersion in the existing data;
4. Letting go: Releasing current held mental models, mindsets, worldviews, beginning a process of incubation;
5. Indwelling and illumination: Living in the undertaking, surrendering oneself to the work, absorbed in the experience, retreating using the generative process of nature as a portal to learning and new knowledge, and receiving illumination – the perception of a new reality, discovering the hidden solution.
6. Crystallizing and prototyping: Moving through a period of of crystallization and prototyping, making manifest what was discovered.
7. Testing and verifying: Transforming the new knowledge into usable products, decisions or strategies.

When they were in a state of commitment and surrender, open to fundamental shifts of minds, they began to experience “synchronicity”.


Based on Jaworski’s experiences over the years, the key barrier in teams to create the single intelligence is, a lack of trust: within each individual, across the group, and in the process. If group members don’t know each other, then they must build trust so that individuals feel they can take the risk of being open. The degree of difficulty in building trust within a group is a function of how much individuals trust themselves. And participants must have faith in the possibilities inherent to the process that they are about to embark on the journey the U- Process invites us on is about creation. There can never be an instruction manual for creation, at least no more than there can be an instruction manual for art or living in general—there are only points of departure. This is a journey where we experience the intense drama of bringing something new into the world. In doing so we remember that we are joyously and forever “hard- wired to the cosmos.”


The way to break the boundaries between people, because they consider themselves as separate and to create and operate as a single intelligence for the good of their organization, for the good of their organization is by bringing them to nature, according to JAWORSKI (Go to this link “Break the boundaries and work as a single intelligence Joseph Jaworski Zin in werk – YouTube.


Another important lesson learned via demonstration project in India they initiated to drastically lower malnourishment among children in province in India, was:

To have an effective Bohemian Dialogue (go to sprott.physics.wisc.edu/Chaos-Complexity/dialogue.pdf), the facilitators should do the hard work of building capacity via disciplined personal practice (contemplative practices, journaling and self- reflection, energy practice and spending time in nature), it is only then the single intelligence is created.


As the core group of Share2Uplift we are convinced, that we can learn from these best practices in unfolding the Share2Uplift movement in practical sense in Curaçao. Stay tuned.


The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018
As the Share2Uplift movement our goal for 2018 is to identify 250 ethical leaders to be empowered by 21st century mindsets and are connected and collaborate with one another to create value for the whole of the society.

As Share2Uplift we are fully trying to align with this thinking of Center for Curriculum Redesign to promote this agenda in our educational systems and workplace. So, in that sense we fully support any initiative to make our educational system 21st century proof.

Share2Uplift aligners are those that:

– Create an inspiring vision of the future;

– Motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision;

– Manage delivery of the vision;

– Coach and built a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision.


These criteria are now being polished.

We also consider these 5 values of the most important ones for Share2Uplift aligners. They are:

• Peace from within;

• Compassion;

• Respectfulness;

• Integrity;

• Responsibility.

As we will progress towards this goal we will update you on the progress. Visit the website for more information.

The book Sapiens, A brief history of mankind, Chit Chat Workshop and This week tips

Posted on July 23, 2018 at 3:50 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (23rd – 29th of July) we will expand on the quintessence and lessons learned from the book “Sapiens, A brief history of mankind”, which we presented in our last Master Your Mind platform session on the 19th of July; we will invite you to our next Chit Chat Mensingh’s Caminada workshop “Happiness is the journey for happiness an internal or external pursuit? Where does your happiness originate from and can you influence it or is it a matter of fate?”. We will end with some personal coaching tips as video links on leadership. Each single day during the week we will upload on video on our Facebook.com/share2uplift page.



Why we need to prepare to adapt?
In this weekly blog, we have at times explained, that we need to prepare to adapt because of the speed, complexity and intensity of the changes that are taking place in this day and age. There are at least 28 combinatorial changes taking place at this moment that are transformational and disruptive and this is challenging us as human beings in ways we have never experienced before. Check this link out where Futurist Gerd Leonhard explains this.


In the book “Sapiens, a brief history of human kind”, by the author Yuval Noah Harari, he presents how human history has been shaped over the years and end with a rather personal projection of the future. (Why Humans Run the World - Yuval Noah Harari on TED – YouTube  and a Book Summary: Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari.


Future
Harari believes the future to be a world with people like us enjoying better technology. The revolutionary potential of future technologies is to change Homo sapiens itself, including our bodies and our minds, and not merely our vehicles and weapons. Humans will acquire abilities that in the past were considered divine, such as eternal youth, mind reading, and the ability to engineer life. The past history of life owes nothing to divine intelligence. Ironically, however, the zealots may well be right about the future. Very soon, the four-billion-year-old regime of natural selection may be overthrown, and life in the universe will increasingly be shaped by the intelligent designs of divine beings.

People have been using selective breeding, castration and other forms of bio-engineering for at least 10,000 years. But recent advances in our understanding of how organisms work, down to the cellular and genetic levels, have opened up previously unimaginable possibilities. For example, scientists can today take a gene from a jellyfish that glows in a green florescent light, and implant it in a rabbit or a monkey, which starts glowing in a green florescent light. Instead of limiting themselves to working with organic structures, future designers might well use inorganic parts as well, and engineer cyborgs. (Definition: A fictional or hypothetical person whose physical abilities are extended beyond normal human limitations by mechanical elements built into the body).


At present, we cannot solve all technical problems. But we are working on them. Our best minds are not wasting their time trying to give meaning to death. Instead, they are busy investigating the physiological, hormonal, and genetic systems responsible for disease and old age. A few serious scholars suggest that by 2050, some humans will become a-mortal (not immortal, because they could still die of some accident, but a-mortal, meaning that in the absence of fatal trauma their lives could be extended indefinitely).

In spite of all these developments in science and technology, we still seem unhappy in many ways and we are unsure of what we want. Is there anything more dangerous that dissatisfied and irresponsible gods who don’t know what they want?


Happiness
We are more powerful than our ancestors have ever been, but are we much happier?

Very few scientific studies focus on happiness.

• First of all, happiness depends less on objective conditions and more on our own expectations. Expectations, however, tend to adapt to conditions. When things improve, expectations balloon, and consequently even dramatic improvements in conditions might leave us as dissatisfied as before.
• A second explanation is that both our expectations and our happiness are determined by our internal biochemical system. And our biochemical system has no real interest in happiness.
• A third explanation is that humans simply don’t understand what happiness is.

Scholars have researched the history of just about everything – politics, economics, diseases, sexuality, food – yet they have seldom asked how they all influence human happiness. A more nuanced stance agrees with the romantics that, up until the modern age, there was no clear correlation between power and happiness. Medieval peasants may indeed have been more miserable than their hunter-gatherer ancestors. We have at long last turned the corner and begun increasing global happiness systematically. We can congratulate ourselves on the accomplishments of modern Homo sapiens only if we completely ignore the fate of all other animals.



Human history in a nutshell

Human history has been shaped over the years by three major revolutions:

• the Cognitive Revolution (70,000 years ago), how the Homo Sapiens became the only surviving human specie and moved humanity from an obscure species in the middle all the way to the top of the food chain;
• the Agricultural Revolution (10,000 years ago), our transition from hunter-gatherer to farmers: domestication of animals and plants and
• the Scientific Revolution (500 years ago), our transition to domination.

These revolutions have empowered humans to do something no other form of life has done, which is to create and connect around ideas that do not physically exist (think religion, capitalism, and politics). These shared “myths” have enabled humans to take over the globe and have put humankind on the verge of overcoming the forces of natural selection. But then in the past 1000 years, humans have evolved to take over the world and are on the verge of overcoming natural selection and becoming gods.

Power and imagination
Sapiens rule the world, because we are the only animal that can cooperate flexibly in large numbers. We can create mass cooperation networks, in which thousands and millions of complete strangers work together towards common goals. One-on-one, even ten-on-ten, we humans are embarrassingly similar to chimpanzees. Any attempt to understand our unique role in the world by studying our brains, our bodies, or our family relations, is doomed to failure. The real difference between us and chimpanzees is the mysterious glue that enables millions of humans to cooperate effectively.

This mysterious glue is made of stories, not genes. We cooperate effectively with strangers because we believe in things like gods, nations, money and human rights. Yet none of these things exists outside the stories that people invent and tell one another. Only Sapiens can believe such stories. This is why we rule the world, and chimpanzees are locked up in zoos and research laboratories.

Science and religion
Polytheist: Egyptian, Roman, Greek, Nordic, German: many gods, often one leading god

Monotheistic: Christianity, Islam: one god, still many saints

Non-theist: Jainism and Buddhism in India, Daoism and Confucianism in China, and Stoicism, Cynicism and Epicureanism in the Mediterranean basin: superhuman order governing the world is the product of natural laws, gods having their niche in the ecosystem, but are still part of the universal law of nature and do not prevent suffering to arise from craving. We came a long way in defeating death. When the gods created man, they set death as man’s inevitable destiny, and man must learn to live with it. In the two centuries since Waterloo, we are developing new medicines, revolutionary treatments, and artificial organs that will lengthen our lives and might one day vanquish the Grim Reaper himself. As a result, most late-modern religions and ideologies do not see death and its aftermath central to the meaning of life anymore: communists, capitalists, feminists do not answer the question of life after death.

The marriage of science and religion is clear in the way funds have been made available to chart the universe, map the planet, and catalogue the animal kingdom. Science is used to support political, religious and economical goals. European powers were different: without the Europeans and their quest to colonise the world, a lot less would be known about the world.


Ecology
Is the agricultural revolution an improvement?

The Agricultural Revolution left farmers with lives generally more difficult and less satisfying than those of foragers. Hunter-gatherers spent their time in more stimulating and varied ways, and were less in danger of starvation and disease. The Agricultural Revolution certainly enlarged the sum total of food at the disposal of humankind, but the extra food did not translate into a better diet or more leisure.
The discrepancy between evolutionary success of domesticated animals and individual suffering is one of the most important lessons of history.


Humankind really has taken over the world, annihilating the wild animals and mistreating the domesticated ones. We are focussing on the material needs of our domesticated animals, but neglect their emotional and social needs.
We became enslaved by wheat, rice and potatoes. Wheat, rice and potatoes domesticated Homo sapiens, rather than vice versa. Humans in many parts of the world were doing little from dawn to dusk other than taking care of wheat plants. It wasn’t easy. Wheat demanded a lot of them. The body of Homo sapiens had not evolved for such tasks. Moreover, the new agricultural tasks demanded so much time that people were forced to settle permanently next to their wheat fields.


Money and politics
People are willing to do such things when they trust the figments of their collective imagination. Money is accordingly a system of mutual trust, and not just any system of mutual trust: Money is the most universal and most efficient system of mutual trust ever devised. Even people who do not believe in the same god or obey the same king are more than willing to use the same money. Just as writing developed to answer the needs of intensifying administrative activities, so barley money developed to answer the needs of intensifying economic activities. Money does not need a lot of space and cannot deteriorate.

Before credit, we needed cash for everything. This froze economies. Only after accepting a system that trusted the future. In it, people agreed to represent imaginary goods—goods that do not exist in the present—with a special kind of money they called “credit.” Credit enables us to build the present at the expense of the future. It’s founded on the assumption that our future resources are sure to be far more abundant than our present resources.

Since 1945, we have lived in the most peaceful era ever all around the world. No independent country recognized by the UN has been conquered and wiped off the map. Limited international wars still occur from time to time, and millions still die in wars, but wars are no longer the norm. Many people believe that the disappearance of international war is unique to the rich democracies of Western Europe. In fact, peace reached Europe after it prevailed in other parts of the world. Real peace is the implausibility of war, humankind has broken the law of the jungle because we know we have more to win with peace than with war (war is costly and generates little) as most value turned from the land to ideas in the minds of the people.


To summarize, Harari attempts to explain how Homo Sapiens came to be the dominant species on earth as well as the sole representative of the human genius in this book. His current research focuses on macro-historical questions such as:

• What is the relationship between history and biology?
• What is the essential difference between Homo sapiens and other animals?
• Is there justice in history?
• Does history have a direction?
• Did people become happier as history unfolded?


As the core-group of Share2uUplift we wanted to share Harari’s thoughts with you. The scientific revolution is only 500 years old whilst we are again in ERA of accelerated changes.

In our next MYM-platform session on the 16th of August, we will present his second book Homo Deus, a brief History of Tomorrow. In next week’s blog we will expand on how Joseph Jaworski explains how the nature of leadership in these times need to change as well because old analytical approaches are not sufficient flexible and creative. So, stay tuned.


The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018
As the Share2Uplift movement our goal for 2018 is to identify 250 ethical leaders to be empowered by 21st century mindsets and are connected and collaborate with one another to create value for the whole of the society.

Interview Natalie Daal, upcoming events and this week tips

Posted on July 16, 2018 at 3:40 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (16th - 22nd of July) we will share an interview we had with Natalie Daal an educational expert, sharing how she influences some youth in Curaçao their life’s and her thoughts on our educational system; we will invite you to our next Master Your Mind-platform session on the 19th of July; we will invite you to our next Chit Chat Mensing’s Caminada workshop on the 26th of July and we will share some motivational video links as tips related to dealing with “intention”. Every single day we will upload one of these video links on www.facebook.com/share2uplift/.

.
Education reform, Natalie Daal’s purpose in life
Natalie Daal is a very active person in our society. As a mother of 3 (now grown up) girls, she is:
● the president of “Fundashon Kompa Nanzi” (of which “Leeinstituut Klimop” is better known);
● the director of the private school “De Rakkers (school op maat)”;
● very active in Kiwanis;
● actively involved in the project “ Leerorkest” that just finished their first year to teach some of our youth to play an instrument.

Why are you so involved in so many different educational endeavors?
“As a girl of 5 I already knew and told my parents that I’m going to work with children when I grow up. In my journey in life, I have done different things and experienced so many things, but I am still convinced that my “inner voice” still wants me to play a crucial and defining role in transforming our educational system. So as for now this is my major focus. I am very interested in spirituality and my spiritual development, but I studied to become an electrician; studied residential work & social work; I have studied HRM; I am a teacher by profession; I have studied Management and was a quality manager/ coordinator of 4 after school, schools until 2013 whom where all financed by AMFO. Everytime I tried to do something different, I was being gently reminded, to keep my focus on education”.

“We work with among other things on:

● small groups of children on an individual level;
● children and youth being bullied and prepare them to re-integrate in the regular school system;
● offer workshops to parents;
● pre-school childcare of children from 0 to 4 years old;
● we offer tutoring (extra lessons) to students that need to catch up, that we offer by a group of teachers, educational supervisors, remedial teachers and a social worker to help re-integrate the children in the regular school system and follow up in case of whatever problems the students might have at school while also involving the parents.”


“A lot of students have issues and come to us because of their inability to adjust to the educational system as it is being offered now. Their brains are wired differently meaning that if you give them a laptop you don’t need to explain a lot. The need to learn some basic skills like how to search on the internet, where and what to file and “off they go”. If you try to teach them with books, they have so many issues and struggle. I am of the opinion that our teachers on the island need to transform, because of the new era we are in now. Some of the teachers are understanding to this now, but we still have a long way to go, to make the necessary adjustments.”


Where does this all started?
“I started with a pilot to offer tutoring (extra lesson, “Huiswerk Plus” and this was very successful as was proven by the results of the students and how other organizations have used our methods. We need to go back to the child, family and the school. We need to balance the regular curriculum with a more holistic curriculum, to make the education of these students more integrated, to level things out. 

As part of this holistic education we also use scent and candles to sooth the environment of the students to let them feel more balanced and at ease. We also offer them a healthy meal for a sharp affordable price.

All this is offered with a special sub-goal and that is to offer these forms of education to those students in our society where their parents are unable to pay for them to go to a after school-program. We want to offer these students also access to what we offer. Although this at times has been challenging and still is challenging.”


What is the real challenge for you now?
“We have been subsided for 10 years by AMFO until the subsidy was stopped in 2013. We only had one year to adjust to this announcement. Via AMFO we had 90 children in Buena Vista. We worked with an adoption program where individuals could adopt a child and sponsor their clothes, books and what have you more. Our results were extremely well. We had a 100 % success rate of students graduating and going to the next grades at school. And we were very caring in our approach, because we make them feel loved, unconditionally, but we can be critical, there were we had to correct them in their inappropiate behaviors.
By doing this, we gained their confidence. We were making a difference.


And then AMFO stopped in 2013 and we had to release 90 children from Buena Vista and 20 workers. I had sleepless nights those days, it was a very painful experience, because we had to release different workers, including my brother whom was also working for us. And of course “ the children” we knew, had nowhere to go after school. Those were hard times. It forced us to be creative and explore how we could go on with less funds. We kept the formula where we charge a reasonable monthly fee per student and still offer some whom can’t afford it, education free of charge. We do get some funds from “Reda Soshal” and we are “on track” on complying with the requirements of the Inspectorate of Education. As we want the students to later on, re-integrate in the regular school system, we are forced to meet those standards anyways. We reached some sort of balance, but then as is life, we are of late dealing with some new challenges as we have students were the parents both lost their jobs and we are also dealing with increased operational costs. But in any case, we will continue to find ways and means to continue with what we are doing.”

 


Natalie you are a very active member of the service club Kiwanis. Where did this come from?
It started as part of my desire to be helpful to our society some 14 years ago. Both my grandmother and mother had a big influence on me. Both were very social, caring and sharing with our neighbors. So, this also became my second nature. By participating in Kiwanis, I was able to contribute and share to the society through the projects Kiwanis organizes.

Like the project we have done in Soto, DeSavaan, Fuik where we offered a container of 2nd hand high quality clothes to the poor in these neighborhoods. The level of poverty we have met, made me realize how privileged my children were raised.


Tell us something about the “Leerorkest” initiative. 
Natalie: “Tania Kross a famous opera singer living in Holland, started in the fall of 2017 with a local “Leerokest” initiative in Curaçao with students from the fifth and sixth grade of the primary school Maria Oxiliadora (Santa Maria). Tania visited this school, when she was growing up in Curaçao. Together with Tania’s farther Roy Kross, both of us very active members of Kiwanis, sponsored by Sint Bernard Fonds, Samenwerkende Fondsen and the Crime Fund of the Ministry of Justice for example to pay for the teachers, we adopted this project. The goal is, to offer to children music lessons during school hours and through that process, change their mindsets, behaviors and ultimately their school performance. The commitment to their instrument and to music helps to transform these students. Although we had a difficult first year, some children are more interested in playing baseball for example, we are very satisfied of the results we have reached this last year.



The students played on Brion Plein on the 2nd of July on the “Dia di Bandera” where this year King Willem Alexander and Queen Maxima were also present. We will now expand this initiative to another school this coming year and the goal is to offer this curriculum on all schools on the island. The instruments and books we got as a gift from a donor “Leerorkest” from Holland and the idea is to also start a so-called “Instrumentdepot Leerorkest” on Curaçao. This initiative is very known in Holland (www.leerorkest.nl/). The goal of “Instrumentendepot Leerorkest” is to create a rental-service of re-used and repaired instruments for “Leerorkesten on schools and similar social-educational initiatives to lower the threshold for those unable to buy expensive instruments”. By offering this to children where the parents lack the money to buy expensive instruments, it becomes easier from them to also practice at home on an instrument.”

Tania Kross about this first performance.



What are you plans for the future?
“I will stay my course and after being challenged, we are recovering and trying to deal with the never-ending challenges we are facing. I have been through a very difficult period, these past 7 years but we are seeing the light in the end of the tunnel. I want to collaborate with all those whom are like minded, because I have an unbreakable faith in the Universe and the future of our island’s educational system’s ability to transform”.

The core-group of share2Uplift completely supports Natalie in her endeavors and we will continue to explore ways and means to collaborate and jointly create value for our society.

Part 2/2: Child First Foundation, Master Your Mind Platform Book Session and this week tips

Posted on July 9, 2018 at 1:55 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (9th – 15th of July) we will present to you part two of our article on the Child First Foundation (CFF), were they will share their challenges and their experiences especially with their mindfulness exercises; we will invite you to our next upcoming Master Your Mind-platform session on the 19th of July and we will share some personal tips as video links on happiness with you. Every day we will upload one of these links on our Facebook.com/ Share2uplift page.


Founder of Child First Foundation and After School Academy
We talked to Christian A. Peterson chairman and founder of Child First Foundation and CFF’s After School Academy (ASA) about WHY, he started with the Child First Foundation which 3 years ago started with the ASA.


Chris: “Education makes or breaks an entire nation. The main reason to start Child First Foundation is to combat the epidemic of the absent fathers in the life and education of our children”.


“Child First Foundation and the After School Academy, wants to make sure that children get a well-balanced education in the afternoons. The aim is to become a “pilot”, so that the concept of holistic education can become a model on a world level by educating children, that when they become fathers they understand that this brings along responsibilities towards that child”.

“Our mission is a “Yu di Kòrsou” as world citizen in different walks and areas of life. That is why we choose to teach English as a second language, beside Papiamentu”.

“Our vision is to enable people to develop holistically; that is spiritually, mentally, physically and artistically. We deliberately choose the school “Kolegio Nechie Pieters” as a pilot for the world, being one of the poorest schools on the island in one of the neighborhoods that needs all the attention and assistance of the world. We are confident, as the saying goes, that if we make it in Buena Vista, we can make it everywhere”.


In the After School Academy they focus on:

1. GOD,
2. Forgiveness,
3. Mindfulness practices,
4. Seva, is selfless service or work performed without any thought of reward or repayment to contribute to the improvement of a community,
5. English as the second language besides our local language Papiamentu,
6. Arts and other expressive subjects such as drama, theater, music and dance, but also homework assistance, physical exercises/sports are also part of our holistic program,
7. Monthly day trips, to prepare our ASA children to gain a more worldly view in their outlook, on their way to become world citizens ultimately.

They also emphasize the importance of these three elements:
1. Breathing,
2. Sleeping,
3. Water-household of the children, the children need to drink enough water because it helps to detox, purify and heal their body.


What are the major challenges the CFF-team and ASA have to deal with?
After almost three years, the Child First Foundation Team shared with us the major challenges up to now.

1. Getting and keeping enough intrinsically motivated teachers that share Child First Foundation’s After school Academy’s (CFF ASA) vision, is a big challenge. CFF ASA needs teachers that genuinely want to contribute in creating world class citizens that are happy, mindful, purposeful and that lead significant lives. Just like there are many top sportsmen from Curaçao that have their roots in Buena Vista, it must be possible to work together with the help of all volunteers, on creating the right environment, for the best surgeons, plumbers, musicians, carpenters, astronauts, mobile app developers and novel writers in the world to emerge from Buena Vista. Slowly, but surely, they are making progress in this area although that has not been the easiest hurdle to take.

2. Another huge challenge is to find the formula to achieve more parent involvement, especially fathers that are at present almost 100% absent. Parents are not yet responding to our efforts nor calls. They don’t come to “parent- teacher conferences” to discuss the progress of their children. So of late we have brainstormed on ways and means that will be totally out of the box to get them at meetings to be able to address the issue and motivate them to be involved. We will keep on trying and learn as we go until we have gained enough parent support. Our goal is to even get parents so much involved to create a parent committee and strive to have the committee to keep us accountable of the program and its methods, we are offering to the children.

3. They also had to deal with a lot of vandalism and theft. Getting the neighborhood more involved to carry, protect and develop the project remains a daily concern which has the full attention of CFF. Of late there is some progress being made in getting the neighbors a tiny bit involved, which will increase safety and security.

4. The children not having any food to eat is the challenge that they are actively working on, as we speak. Although CFF is very fortunate and extremely grateful to work with a vast network of volunteers that shared their knowledge and expertise and also for the fact that CFF has an ever-increasing network of financial sponsors, they still lack sufficient structural financial and other resources as yet, to finance and achieve their Food Program ambitions. Nevertheless at this specific moment they are focusing on mobilizing funds for their Food program (look therefore at the following link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=hT-4xTDAo8s&feature=youtu.be

How are the Mindfulness exercises influencing the children?
Gretna Provence the Mindfulness Volunteer Senior Teacher of CFF’s After School Academy,: “When dealing with the children from “Nechi Pieters” from the neighborhood Buena Vista one can sense their deep need and hunger for love, attention and because of our approach we are starting to see results, not big results yet, but you can experience changes and a growing respect for the teachers”.

I can see a noticeable difference in the children. Students that were fighting everyday don’t do it anymore and have become clearly more respectful. We start our class with a routine, called conscious discipline. We try to make them feel safe with us, so that when they close their eyes they really feel safe. When they come in the class they have to pass through where I position myself. After that they take off their shoes and they can go to their mat. We ask them to choose based on a safety stick they have made themselves, between either a kiss, smile, power, high five or a hug. As they are hungry for attention, most choose to have a hug. We have noticed a real change among them when we start our class like that, because they can sit quiet within themselves for stretches of 5 to 10 minutes. We see the difference in the class, but we don’t know yet if it is sustainable as we have no influence on them when they are at home nor when they are in the morning classes”.


One of the biggest successes is the great collaboration CFF has with the directors of the Roman Catholic Schoolboard, Mrs. Lisette van Lamoen-Garmers and Mrs. Karina Lombardi, who gave the premises, buildings and facilities CFF is using at present for ASA at Manhattanweg 6 in Buena Vista, on loan. Another highlight of immense proportion is the fact that the Roman Catholic Bishop, Monseigneur Luis Secco blessed and approved ASA’s Program including the matter given by Gretna, which is Mindfulness.

CFF is very aware of the necessity of combining resources on our island and welcomes all that want to collaborate and contribute to common goals. In fact, at this moment they are working with an organization that is also exploring After School curriculum to be offered in Curaçao and they are exploring how they can collaborate in an effective way.


The ASA volunteer coordinators are conscious that their approach distinguishes itself from the more common curriculums that is offered, as it is based on three pillars, namely:


1. Forgiveness in all three forms, which are, to forgive another, to ask for forgiveness and to forgive oneself.
2. Mindfulness practices, cleanses and increases focus besides relief stress and improve sleep;
3.SEVA, which is the Sanskrit word for acts of kindness and volunteer work. The Roman Catholics are by far the world champions in volunteer work through the ages. They built hospitals, schools (like ours), boarding schools, etc. etc. like no other organization. At ASA it is required that children offer back to the community as part of the curriculum”.

The two ASA volunteer social workers, who are liaisons between the children and their parents are beginning to see signs of more involvement of parents and also the neighborhood as a result in their efforts.

Nevertheless it is crystal clear that ASA has to do a better job to involve parents and the neighborhood more. It is the intention to have the whole neighborhood support the initiatives of CFF and that its location becomes an “Oasis” for all.


About the Food Program

Carolina Silva Vargas who is the volunteer who coordinates the food program shows that good nutrition is essential for the development of the children and continues stating the reason: ”We have come to notice that the children come to the classes without having something to eat or they eat very unhealthy (Soft drink and Chips) as lunch. As sugar influences them negatively, we started a healthy Food Program based on very low sugar intake. Through healthy eating habits we can prevent chronic diseases and reduce health issues. Look at this link related to our food program:www.youtube.com/watch?v=hT-4xTDAo8s&feature=youtu.be

We are now thinking that we can lower the needed funds some more, as we cut on costs and are working more efficient, but we need to have donors supporting this essential program. If donors would support this food program for 5 years, we would be able to feed the children and also prove its effects on their performances and behaviors.”

In this regard CFF understands the need for a scientific approach of measurement of its performance and result in general of its whole program, not only the food program.

Very recently preliminary discussions have been held with an expert in this sense, Mr. Alvin Daal, together with the University of Curacao to assist in setting up a periodically program to for better guidance and effective management purposes. “Meten is weten” as the Dutch say.


Raychan Look, who is the committed volunteer organizer of the walk “Kaminata Yu i Tata (KYT)” and is also one of the five hosts of the Live Radio daily talk show “2121 Live Atardi”. Raychan: “in November 2017 we held the first KYT and we will continue to have it on a yearly basis in November. This year it will be kept on their and the reason for the name we chose (Kaminata Yu i Tata), is to focus on the relationship between especially the father and his child, creating awareness of the importance of fathers being present in the life of their children. The funds that will be collected will be used to finance the Food program.

On this note we are using creative ways and means to collect funds.”

Raychan gave us an example of a Miss Teenager contestant of this year’s pageant who collected, on her own initiative, together with the known news anchor and TV producer, Mr Rachid Felida, a friend of Raychan, during one mass at a Church ANG 1.501,00 for ASA’s Food Program. And Raychan added: “we also received groceries from mentioned Rachid and the Miss Teenager Contestant, which Carolina immediately used and cooked deliciously for the children. I must confess that I also had the opportunity to taste how good the food was, for which I am thankful, to my friend Rachid.”

The newest Team Volunteer on the block, is the passionate Andayé Tecla, who so far does mostly the back office explains: “we are using all within our abilities to collect the much needed funds and are brainstorming on other ways and means to collect those needed funds. We have lots of volunteers that offer their valuable time and knowledge and skills to contribute. We have wonderful suppliers offering us discounts. Our aim now is to approach ultimately Dutch, Other European and USA Donors and Special Funds. We believe that our local fiscal laws may well be needed to be reviewed and revised to make the contribution to charity more attractive, not only for the Child First Foundation, but for all other good causes as well.


To finalize the blog the Child First Foundation has the following recurring activities, the Kaminata Yu i Tata (KYT) in November, a monthly full moon mediation event, several community volunteer work projects, a movie evening “sine den bario (Sineba)” event every first Friday of the month.

As core group of Share2uplift we totally support this bold effort to enable change mindsets among schoolchildren, their parents and the neighborhood of Buena Vista. We would like to call all those that want to align with Child Care Foundation and After School Academy to support their Food Program and be practical. Approach them if you want more information or just donate.



The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018
As the Share2Uplift movement our goal for 2018 is to identify 250 ethical leaders to be empowered by 21st century mindsets and are connected and collaborate with one another to create value for the whole of the society.

As Share2Uplift we are fully trying to align with this thinking of Center for Curriculum Redesign to promote this agenda in our educational systems and workplace. So, in that sense we fully support any initiative to make our educational system 21st century proof.

Share2Uplift aligners are those that:
– Create an inspiring vision of the future;
– Motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision;
– Manage delivery of the vision;
– Coach and built a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision.

These criteria are now being polished.

We also consider these 5 values of the most important ones for Share2Uplift aligners. They are:
• Peace from within;
• Compassion;
• Respectfulness;
• Integrity;
• Responsibility.

As we will progress towards this goal we will update you on the progress.

Blog interview with Chris Peterson on Child First Foundation, upcoming MYM session and this week tips

Posted on July 2, 2018 at 3:45 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (2nd till 9th of July) we will expand on the first article on the Child First Foundation (CFF) initiated in Curaçao, CFF’s After School Academy (ASA) and introduce you to Christian A. Peterson the founder of these initiatives and discuss his motives. We will expand on the upcoming Master Your Mind-platform session on the 19th of July; we will end with some personal video links to inspire and motivate you. Everyday we will upload one of these video links on our Facebook.com/share2uplift page.


Founder of Child First Foundation and After School Academy
We talked to Christian A. Peterson chairman and founder of Child First Foundation and CFF’s After School Academy (ASA) about WHY, he started with the Child First Foundation which 3 years ago started with the ASA and as of the 27th of May 2018 in its own building facilities.The foundation also has a daily interactive live radio talk show “2121 Live Atardi” at the radio station Z-86 and an Educational Training Center, the CFF E-Center, all being managed by a team of dedicated volunteers.

Chris:”I was brought up in a very social, caring and active environment. My father (he was a poet and writer) and mother (she was a house-wife) were very committed and active persons in our society. They were both involved in the emancipation of women rights movement, they fought in several ways against racism, poverty and abuse against the vulnerable. They were also involved in bringing “Cooperativism” to Curaçao. For example, my parents started Cotoko, a supermarket based on “Cooperativism” and they also founded Fundashon pa Konsumidó, the watchdog foundation for consumers rights.

At the age of fifteen years old, I made up my mind on what I would study and consciously chose to bring the right balance to my social upbringing. As I saw many beautiful social initiatives fail, as Cotoko ultimately did, because of the lack of a sound financial approach in these social projects, I decided to become a Dutch Chattered Accountant (Register Accountant). In my view, we should apply prudent fiscal principles in all socially necessary projects and programs. There is, an honest price for everything at which everybody wins and sustainability is a given.

My loving parents were both very spiritual and made it very clear to me at a very young age that education is key for development and progress! The combination of the two, connection to Source (God) and education is the formula. My father was the President of the Council of Churches and used to preach often in churches.

To my parents, it was important for us to take a stand in life and be great advocates of fairness in every aspect of the word.

This education at home is probably the explanation that I am committed to aim at being involved in sustainable initiatives to help create awareness, happiness, mindfulness, purposefulness in significant ways.


It all starts with awareness through education.

“On a personal level I have experienced disempowering beliefs that prevent our people to live to be their best self. Our own educational system in Curaçao is creating low self-esteem among our children. This has to change!”

We asked Chris, just to name one example of these disempowering beliefs.

Chris: "One example is that in our history book for primary scholars we (still) quote an unnamed and unknown Spaniard that apparently must have referred to our islands as being “Islas inútiles”. Our children at a very young age are being poisoned with this stupidity for years now!

I am 100% certain that there must have been other Spaniards and others that saw the huge number of strong positive characteristics of our beautiful islands, like being the (new) world’s best regional hub because of our geographic location. Why not quote those Spaniards or others that saw and made use -big time- of the positives”.

Whether you believe it or not, but the educational system makes or breaks an entire nation.

A very recent example in this respect is a 9 year old student of ASA that was selected by her peer-group in her class to give a presentation as representative of the group; she declined because she thought she wasn’t up to it and not pretty enough, she literally made it clear to the group to choose someone else, “not me, I am ugly” she said!”

Chris: “The main reason we started Child First Foundation is to combat the epidemic of the absent fathers in the life and education of our children. The issue of father absenteeism has grown and is taking on vast proportions and this needs to be addressed urgently. A huge portion of our community, mothers and fathers one way or the other incorrectly believe that children need only mothers. With mother working out of the house, where daddies are absent, children are left behind unsupervised and grow up on the streets. That is bad news!”

Fathers need to step up to the plate and become active in the lives of their children. At the school of Cleon for example they would refer to a parent helping children with master reading as a “lees-moeder” (mothers helping children to master reading). Chris needed to ask the teachers if they could change that word and recognize him as a “lees-vader” or perhaps use the more gender neutral term “lees-ouder” (reading parent).

The problem of father absenteeism, that I consider a crime against humanity, is the main reason to start with Child First Foundation and later the After School Academy, to make sure that children get a well-balanced education in the afternoons.


In his personal journey Chris went to a 5 steps process from accepting:
1. the importance of GOD in his life, call it awareness;
2. to happiness in his life (Chris has been President of, amongst others, the Art of Living);
3. through mindfulness practices;
4. through purposefulness and
5. of late being “significant” by being action oriented and add something significant to mankind, call it a legacy.

As a great advocate of being practical action and result oriented, he told us about the importance of getting things done, because people in need, need help now. Against this background, he decided to do something that can have immediate effect; that is why he started the Child First Foundation’s After School Academy.

Chris: “The aim is to become a “pilot”, so that the concept of holistic education can become a model on a world level. The goal is to educate children that when they become fathers they understand that this brings along responsibilities towards that child. It is also important to educate mothers, to don’t use the child to manipulate, especially there where the parents are divorced or don’t live with one another”.


“Our mission is a “Yu di Kòrsou” as world citizen in different walks and areas of life. That is why we choose to teach English to our students, being the world language, as a second language, beside Papiamentu, to be able to communicate with the world. Only in China over 300 million people speak English and in India, as the second largest populated country with a population of over a billion it is the major second language as well”.

“Our vision is to enable people to develop holistically; that is spiritually, mentally, physically and artistically. In fact we need more schools and education to have less prisoners in our prisons and less youth in our Youth Detention Institute (GOG) and less patients in our hospitals and clinics. The women liberation movement has made major strides since the fifties of the 20th century. Now it is the turn for our men to get their act together and be present.

Father absenteeism, you will find in all neighborhoods on the island, not only in Buena Vista. We nevertheless hand deliberately choose the school “Kolegio Nechie Pieters” as a pilot for the world, being one of the poorest schools on the island in one of the neighborhoods that needs all the attention and assistance of the world. We are confident, as the saying goes, that if we make it in Buena Vista, we can make it everywhere.

As we speak, Bonaire is very interested in our approach and requested us to establish there; we recently shared our draft-articles of incorporation with parties in Aruba and Sint Maarten is also showing interest to have a Child First Foundation’s After School Academy there. We want to, in due course, register our concept at Geneva, Switzerland and have it available for the whole world.


In our approach at the After School Academy we focus on the following elements of the curriculum in the sequence of importance:
1. GOD, faith liberates you from fear and creating comes from the Source of creation.
2. Forgiveness, in all three aspects, forgiving others, asking forgiveness from others and forgiving oneself, liberates from anger and negative emotions and feelings.
3. Mindfulness practices, to complement prayers and to help the children to cleanse themselves from toxic effects of hormones created by negative emotions and feelings.
4. Seva, is the Sanskrit word for selfless service or work performed without any thought of reward or repayment to contribute to the improvement of a community. These acts of kindness we require all our students to offer to the community as a contribution. Giving to others affects the giver in a powerful positive way.
5. English as the second language besides our local language Papiamentu. We value Papiamentu as it is the most beautiful language of the world, the only language that has survived colonialism in this part of the world. But we teach English as a second language because we are very aware that cohorts and cohorts of children finish their “Funderend Onderwijs” (Primary school level of education) without getting English nor Spanish as a school subject in Curaçao. In our approach we start teaching English to prepare our 4-years old students to become world citizens, so that when they turn 7 or 8 years old, we can give them access to on-line learning of school subjects that are available in English almost for free. This is why we put so much emphasis on teaching English as the second language.|
6. Arts and other expressive subjects such as drama, theater, music and dance, but also homework assistance, physical exercises/sports are also part of our holistic program.
7. We have monthly day trips, to prepare our ASA children to gain a more worldly view in their outlook, on their way to become world citizens ultimately.


We also emphasize the importance of these three elements:
1. Breathing, we teach sound breathing techniques because our breaths are like love notes to the body that relaxes the mind and body.
2. Sleeping, because it is important for rest, for recovery and to restore information and we try to convince the parents that their children need to go to bed early to have enough sleep.
3. Water-household of the children, in our war against excessive (white) sugar consumption, the children need to drink enough water because it helps to detox, purify and heal their body.


We still have a long way to go, but we have taken the first steps. If you look back over the past three years since we started ASA we have started to notice
• Positive effects that our approach has on the behavior of our children;
• slightly improved involvement of parents and the neighborhood;
• a growth in the number of volunteers and donors be it in cash, goods and services;
• support from the Roman Catholic schoolboard to keep Kolegio Nechie Pieters open and the approval and blessing of the bishop of the Diocese of the Roman Catholic Church forourholistic program and approach including our mindfulness exercises.



In our next blog of the 9th of July 2018, we will discuss the challenges Child First Foundation has to deal with and we will come with suggestions, how you can help support this initiative.



As core group of Share2uplift we totally support this bold effort to enable change mindsets among schoolchildren, their parents and the neighborhood of Buena Vista. We would like to call all those that want to align with Child First Foundation (CFF) and CFF’s After School Academy for more information, to apply to become a volunteer or just make a donation to feel free to do so.

The essence of the book Tijd voor nieuwe zaken, Bos di Hubentut 25 years, This week workshop @ Chit Chat and Tips

Posted on June 25, 2018 at 1:40 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (25th of June till the 2nd of July) we will expand on the essence of the book: “Tijd voor nieuwe zaken, by Judith Manshanden illustrating what impact the new order will have on purpose of the organisation, business model, management models and leadership; we will congratulate Bos di Hubentut for celebrating their 25th anniversary; we will invite you to our upcoming workshop “How to overcome obstacles that are holding you back” of the 26th of June at Chit Chat Mensing’s Caminada; we will end with some personal success tips varying from morning rituals to habits of successful people, as video links. Every day we will upload one of these links also on our Facebook.com/share2uplift page.

Tijd voor nieuwe zaken’s quintessence
In the book “Tijd voor nieuwe zaken”, by Judith Manshanden, she accurately describes our time and invites you to take advantage of the possibilities with your heart and your mind. Michiel van der Veur presented the highlights of this book in our last Master Your Mind platform session at the Biblioteka Nashonal. We would like to share with you the quintessence of her book derived from the presentation of Michiel.

Manshanden: “We are going throough great changes and this affects the purpose of organisations, the business models, the management models and the required leadership of organisations in the 21st century”. How? From a logical machine (20th century) to an interconnected system (21st century).

Manshanden: “A new world view is emerging, in which the world is no longer a logical machine, but an interconnected system. This new world view affects our driving force, our ideas, our behaviour and our business models. As a result, our economic system also changes: purpose, connectedness, and living your purpose become important drivers. In interconnected systems the micro and the macro are connected, before you can build an interconnected system, you have to transition to the new world view.

The new economic order requires new behaviour whereby the purpose is the most important factor in an interconnected world. The new behaviour requires the use of the right side of our brain.” “To change an organisation, one needs to understand this new model. In this new model we:
• migrate from self-interest to the greater good;
• no longer see growth as linear, but as adaptive change;
• no longer need bosses, but people who guide processes; that inspire, build trust and create connections.”
“The purpose is the soul of the organisation, transcends the vision and mission. The purpose of the organisation is connected to the purpose of the employees and clients. The purpose functions like a compass. The purpose of the organisation is always present in the best employees. A purpose needs to be felt and lived. Story telling is a great way to embed the purpose in the organisation.”

New business models replace the linear business model: for example they become a circular economy or a sharing economy. An interconnected organisation has a purpose and creates a shared value by re-evaluating products and markets, redesigning the value chain, and building supporting clusters. A shift from command and control to trust and intrinsic motivation is underway. An interconnected organisation (the Co-operative and the Network organisation) is a learning organisation. Success is measured in long term results and short term experiences.

To introduce interconnected ways of working within current structures: requires more responsibilities, scrum.




















In a Co-operative the clients or suppliers are the owners and it is a legal entity;
• A Network organisation is not a legal entity, but based on the intention of those who want to work together;
• In scrum: people and their interaction are more important than processes and instruments, working products are more important than complete documentation, working together with clients is more important than negotiating a contract, and being flexible is more important than following a plan.


In an interconnected organisation, the leader is no longer the boss, but facilitates employees in their performance. Main tasks of an interconnected leader:
• Inspire employees
• Create the context for optimal performance (trust)
• Connect dots and align efforts (internally and externally)


To transform starts with a new mind set, a new organisational structure comes later.

Manshanden says that when you switch to the interconnected world view, you will experience dissonance. A pioneer mentality is required to overcome problems and explore new ways of working. Others can’t be forced to make the switch. When you want to transform your organisation, make sure you have a clear purpose. At first it takes a lot of energy, but it will be rewarding.

The core-group of Share2Uplift is pleased to have found an author describing what we are experiencing now on a small scale on Curacao and we expect that it will only grow in the very near future.


The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018
As the share2uplift movement our goal for 2018 is to identify 250 ethical leaders to be empowered by 21st century mindsets and are connected and collaborate with one another to create value for the whole of the society.
As Share2Uplift we are fully trying to align with this thinking of Center for Curriculum Redesign to promote this agenda in our educational systems and workplace. So, in that sense we fully support any initiative to make our educational system 21st century proof.
Share2Uplift aligners are those that:
– Create an inspiring vision of the future;
– Motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision;
– Manage delivery of the vision;
– Coach and built a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision.
These criteria are now being polished.

We also consider these 5 values of the most important ones for Share2Uplift aligners. They are:
• Peace from within;
• Compassion;
• Respectfulness;
• Integrity;
• Responsibility.

As we will progress towards this goal we will update you on the progress.

Report of Hˇben On 2, this week MYM Platform book session, Chit Chat workshop and this week tip

Posted on June 18, 2018 at 2:55 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (18th of June till 24th of June) we will share with you, what drives the initiator and driver of Hóben Òn! Bianca Neman (Be Advancement) after we have been to the 2nd edition of the seminar musical Hóben Òn!; we will share with you what drives Pharon Pilgrim, the motivational speaker (also singer, composer, rapper, college baseball player on a scholarship in the USA and designer) that opened the 2nd edition of the Hóben Òn! Musical, sharing his personal challenges and successes; we will invite you to our next Master Your Mind-platform on the 21st of June at Biblioteka Nashonal; we will invite you to our next workshop at Chit Chat Mensing’s Caminada tiltled: “How to overcome Obstacles that are holding you back” and we will share with you some motivational video links. We will upload a link every day via Facebook.com/share2uplift.



Hóben Òn! Musical 2nd edition on the 16th of June

On the 16th of June there was the 2nd edition of the musical Hóben Òn! We want to share HOW we experienced this event:

“It was really beyond our expectations in terms of organization, flow of the whole event, workshops, energy, talent shown and last but not least uplifting and inspiring content by all the participants”. 
The collaboration between Bianca Neman (be.advancement) and Excel Arts Academy enabling this event has grown deeper and deeper after their first collaboration in 2016.



The afternoon started with artist FireOn Pharon Pilgrim and as a surprise he was followed by the well known singer Aemy Feliz before Excel Arts Academy started with their part offering a varied show of dancing, singing, brass band and some sketches presented by actors of Excel and some of the first 14 youth, participating in the Hóben Òn! scholarship program at Excel. The central theme was that everybody deserves a Second Change.








We asked Bianca Neman what drives her to start and continue to offer the 2nd edition of the different phases of the Hóben Òn! program. Bianca shared with us, that she was inspired and focused enough during her youth to study and improve herself, by going to school in the evening hours and also she went to Holland to further improve herself knowledge and skills level. This, although her family circumstances were far from being ideal.

This helps her when she gives her workshop Life and Soft skills to the youth from schools and from different “Barrios”, that instead of being a victim she has surpassed those challenges and she has grown to be whom she is right now.

Bianca: “it is not unusual to noticed three things among some of our youth. They find it hard to:
1. mention one positive trait of themselves;
2. compliment one and another in the peer group and
3. accept 100 % responsibility of their choices”.


“Our approach is to trigger youth based on their interest in arts and culture, edutainment, to discover and to develop their passion and realize their dreams. This irrespective of the environment where they come from, just by accepting their own responsibility, they can gain greater mastery of the choices they make in their life”.

One example on how Hóben Òn! can enable youth is, Pharon Pilgrim the motivational speaker, composer and singer that opened the musical this year. (Pharon is also baseball player on a scholarship in the USA and fashion designer) was asked what drives him? Having a clear purpose at the age of 20 year is remarkable, but it didn’t come easy for him. Having struggled at finding his purpose he went to some great disappointments, like choosing to leave VWO 6th grade to go to HAVO 5th grade only to fail that exam. Deciding to do a gap (sabbatical) year after finishing his HAVO exams after all, as a promise to his parents and he gained some work experience and discovered that he was not meant to sit behind a desk most of the day; becoming the first finalist in the RYLA, the youth leadership program of Rotary in 2016 that transformed him, participating in Hóben Òn! in 2016 and finally ending up on scholarship on baseball at the North Central Missouri College in the USA. He sang the national anthem twice at his school in the meantime, becoming the NCMC outstanding student of the month May 2018, after developing his speaking and singing abilities while at times, in the past even speaking could be painful for him due to a physical ailment.

“Struggles to succeed are necessary to become successful”, Pharon told the attendees in his address to the attendees.

Both Bianca and Pharon are focused on “changing mindsets of our youth” by doing just that, they are 100 % aligned with the goals of Share2Uplift.


Bianca is passionate about enabling the development of our youth via Hóben Òn! and in the near future she wants to start another big initiative and that is to connect and align educational organizations in their efforts, to improve the holistic education of our children, our youth including their parents on Curaçao.

Pharon wants to use his ever growing fame to inspire our youth and changed their mindsets and therefore the culture on Curacao, but he also wants to become a world renowned fashion designer based from Curacao.

Coverage of the event via Facebook.com/Turkutin of the live stream from Pure Quality Production (Presentation of initiator Bianca Neman and FireOn) and Æmy and Excel Arts Academy and more....
We will share the footage from Hóben Òn! itself with you, as soon as it is edited on the Facebook page of Hoben Òn!


As the core group of Share2Uplift we also enable mindset changes among are youth in Curaçao. We collaborate with social entrepreneurs like Bianca Neman to “Connect Dots Align efforts” aimed at changing our youth, their mindsets. Via the foundation - go to www.YouthVision5000.org and see with whom else we collaborate - we collaborate closely with other social entrepreneurs and organizations.


As Share2Uplift we are fully trying to align with this thinking of Center for Curriculum Redesign to promote this agenda in our educational systems and workplace. So in that sense we fully support any initiative to make our educational system 21st century proof.
Share2Uplift aligners are those that
– Create an inspiring vision of the future;
– Motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision;
– Manage delivery of the vision;
– Coach and built a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision.
These criteria are now being polished.

We also consider these 5 values of the most important ones for Share2Uplift aligners. They are:
• Peace from within;
• Compassion;
• Respectfulness;
• Integrity;
• Responsibility.
As we will progress towards this goal we will update you on the progress.

Hóben Òn! Musical Seminar

As the core group of Share2Uplift we also enable mindset changes among are youth in Curaçao. This is done via a foundation called Youth Vision 5000. We collaborate with social entrepreneurs to “Connect Dots Aligne efforts” aimed at changing our youth, their mindsets.
Coming the 16th of June, Bianca Neman of Be-Advancement together with Excel Arts Academy (Winner this year of the prestigious Appeltje van Oranje award), sponsored mainly by Reda Soshal in collaboration with lots of volunteers and others donors will offer to our Youth on the 16th June, a second edition of the Musical Seminar Hóben Òn! The first one was held in September 2016. During this event there will be a musical, some workshops and some information-stands from 3 pm - 8 pm at Kura di Arte at Pietermaai.


Hóben Òn! aims at positively influencing our youth via an integrated program consisting of 4 phases and by doing that enabling positive changes in their mindsets.

In phase 1, different groups of youth from schools, orphanages, Justitiele Jeugd Inrichting Curaçao, Youth that are on probation (Reclassering), youth from different “Barrios”, go through workshops Soft & Life skills and this started in 2017 for the 2nd edition of Hóben Òn!

The 2nd Phase consists of this Musical Seminar on the 16thof June.

In Phase 3 some 50 of the youth whom have participated in the workshop Soft & Life skills and participated in the Musical, will go through a mentor program based on their specific talent during 1 year developing their talents.

In Phase 4 a documentary will be made of Hóben Òn! activities to be presented to as much youth as possible via social media and other media. The intention is to reach the youth whom were unable to attend any Hóben Òn! Activity, so as to increase the impact of the program.
