Emotional Support and activities to help increase/inspire genuine Self-Confidence in coping and living with some of the challenges of having Skin Conditions and Visible Differences and improving general health and well-being.
Twice every year (May and November), Outer Shell Africa collaborates with Vogo Designs, a socially responsible clothing and accessories line that helps build the self-confidence of people living with Skin conditions and visible differences to host highly interactive and inclusive ‘Positive Self-image Interventions‘ an event primarily for individuals living with skin condition and visible differences and anyone who got self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence issues impacting negatively on their social life and career.
Challenges we understand very well;
- That the reflection of what many with skin conditions and visible differences will have picked up in different social and business environments is that people remember them for their visible differences above everyother.
- It is hard for you to feel your normal self and perform effectively when you are constantly conscious and discouraged about your body appearance challenges.
- How socially conscious and withdrawn most of us with visible differences are.
Positive self-image Interventions is genuine Self-Confidence innovative workshops with informal presentations of real life stories/experiences of conquerors.
i. Empower to conquer social exclusion, combat poverty and improve Quality of Life QoL.
ii. Offer self-help guide to overcoming symptoms of stress, anxiety and low
iii. inspire self-love and self-acceptance for the genuine self-confidence of all affected.
We are hoping and working on taking this initiative around Africa and beyond (with Africans living in the diaspora with skin conditions and visible differences).
Please keep a date with us as we continue to work, nurture and build, one step at a time.
First official ‘Positive Self-image Intervention’ is 16th November 2017 .
