How did counselling help with starting your own social enterprise, Havan Clothing?
Put aside the theories and skills, being humanistic, genuine and non- judgemental are essential f or counselling children. When we star ted Havan Clothing —an organisation that turns shelter- home children’s ar t work into clothing designs—being humanistic is crucial. We are not a business t hat sells clothes; we are a business t hat connects, empowers and lifts each other.
What can we expect f rom Havan Clothing, f or the rest of 2018?
We’ve just launched a Superhero - themed campaign to address the issues of bullying and all our products will soon come in kids’ sizes. A lot of our customers have asked f or smaller sizes , and we’re personally very fond of the idea of kids empowering other kids .
How do you think you and your business push f or progress?
I see myself as an ordinary adult who cares for the children. We don’t need sophisticated knowledge to make an impact .“Being there always” has the power to transform a fragile life. In order to push f or progress , my mantra is always“Be consistent ”. Keeping this man train my mind has guided my work and Havan Clothing.
