Karibu UDADA

Welcome to a brand new

UDADA. We are calling it

UDADA REVAMPED!

And our new slogan is:

She Smiles,

I Smile©

The recent events especially in the global and local

political arena, have rekindled and REVAMPED our

determination and focus for UDADA.

I am specifically talking about Hillary Clinton losing

the presidential race in USA and Amina Mohamed

losing the African Union Commission election.

There are many other events in the other spheres of

society; socially, economically and even religiously

that we could site. However these two were a major

blow for us as women. And they only awakened me

to the purpose of the UDADA Global Movement and

why NOW can’t wait....

Remember our purpose

is changing how we see

ourselves as women,

changing how we view

each other as women and

changing how society

views women and girls.

For a movement

to be effective,

it must gain

momentum.

So now is the

time our dear

dadas, to tag

as many

women as

possible into UDADA and make this our new culture.

That is why we have made our gatherings FREE and

hustle Free – no pre-registrations, door payments

etc. So that indeed when she wins we win; and

when she smiles I smile.

So as the Dada at the forefront, allow me to charge

you to reach out to women wherever you interact

with them; in their offices, elevators, chama,

churches, mosques, bridal showers, baby showers,

weddings, matatu, clubs, discos, conferences and

invite them to join this movement.

@NikoUdada,

She Smiles, I Smile.

Let us amplify UDADA in 2017.

Udada Hug,

Laimani

From Our Last Gathering:

UNCOMFORTABLE

Speaker: Laimani Bidali

(An excerpt)

Peace is not the

absence of war

Uncomfortable conversations are

necessary conversations.

They make us uneasy.

This is because they require a

level of risk, vulnerability and

healing…kinda squeezing a boil.

The process is uncomfortable,

painful and ugly stuff comes

out, but the end result is

healing, relief, easiness and

normalcy.

So how do you do it:

Philippians 2:3-4 (AMP)

Do nothing from selfishness

or empty conceit [through factional motives,

or strife], but with [an attitude of] humility [being

neither arrogant nor self-righteous],

regard others as more important than yourselves.

4

Do not merelylook out for your own

personal interests,

but also for the interests of others.

A: affirm the person - you and them

B: bare understanding - this happened…

what happened?

C: confess the impact (for every action there is an

equal and opposite reaction you and the

relationship: feelings yours and theirs -

OWN your message (WHY &what I am saying)

D: dignify the person you and them

E: END: see you next time: or the relationship is over

I Don’t Need Any One To

Sort Out My Life!!!

(Conso Alabastron Season 27)

I learnt about Alabastron through My colleague at the

office but also had seen the program on TV some years

back and I really liked it and wished I was the one up

there. For many years I was battling with, rejection,

unforgiveness and over the years have read many books

I have volumes of them on forgiving and loving again,

healing emotional, damaged heart, your rejection is

showing up and many more but nothing worked, I have

even gone to a counselor but I still go back to the old

self.

Having been rejected by 3 men at the point where the

relationship is grown and almost getting married,

having a mother that I was not getting along for many

years, losing a job and had to discontinue school

because of that and just a few months before I joined

the class, dealing with a divorce it was too much weight

on my shoulders. This made me bitter, angry to self and

others, and I even started drinking alcohol secretly and

dating a non-Christian (yet I was a believer) even before

the divorce was over.

I don’t need other

people’s

affirmation, or

acceptance for me

to be whole.

Learning how to set

boundaries with

myself and others,

and then ACTUALLY

Alabastron has helped me

realize I don’t need any one

to sort my life. I don’t need

to date one man after

another to be

fulfilled as I am whole and

complete as I am.

setting these boundaries was IN-powering! Learning

how to forgive and ACTUALLY forgiving remains one of

my greatest lessons that made a tremendous change in

me For me Alabastron was like a blender; when

blending fruits, the blender will blend everything;

nothing is lost; all the nutrients are captured and the

outcome is so sweet.

Everything was taken care of at once in one package

and the outcome is this renewed Conso. I am even

shocked at myself that am not shouting and yelling at

people! Am not getting really angry with people and I

can forgive easily, and let go of things I could hold on

to so much. I can easily say am sorry and really mean it

from my heart.

Thanks Coach Beatrice and the team. May God bless

you richly and continue to give you the strength and the

grace to deal with other women as well. What you are

doing is amazing and working wonders in the lives of

women and by extension their families.

No amount of words can explain.

An UDADA circle is a small

group comprising of 3-12 women

who meet up at least once a month

to discuss more intimately the lessons

learned from the UDADA gatherings and apply these

lessons while keeping each other accountable for

their growth and progress.

Why an UDADA circle?

What is an UDADA circle?

The UDADA gatherings happen for only one evening in a

month. This is such a limited time for one to de-brief and

process all that has been discussed in that one evening.

For this reason the circles then offer a platform for us

as women to process all that we are learning in these

gatherings by meeting and sharing our views,

experiences and resolutions as well as celebrating out

results.

Through this sharing we are able to get to know each

other and be known, hold each other accountable and

build strong lasting friendships as sisters all of which

pushes this movement forward. UDADA seizes to

become just a gathering of women and girls, but rather

a lifestyle and a culture.
