Draft your own hero story

Vicky Muranda of FNB bank is the new hero of this admiring assembly of young fans.Child councillors, radio presenters and the child protection committees in support of LifeLine Childline and the Community Certificate programme at NAMCOL, this week attended an induction course in the use of a so-called Hero Book.
A Hero Book is a document, and a process, in which a child, young person or adult is invited to be the author, illustrator, main character and editor of his/her own life-book that is designed to help them set goals, and give them power over a specific challenge or obstacle in their life.
The Hero Book process works as a form of community mobilisation helping individuals to reflect on their inability to solve their problem, and then leading to a solution of empowerment and self-respect. Being the author and auctor of one’s own book and storyline leads to insight and to the mobilisation of a wider circle of external support and resources.
