Speaking on the outreach, Madame Olieh said, “We specifically identified art, vocational training and foreign languages because many people leave it late before realizing they left their talent or gift behind.

“What we do at Madame Olieh is to communicate to parents the inherent gifts and talents that they have not been too patient to unearth.

She encouraged parents to be more patient with their children and also to always listen to them. “The younger generation understand and can interpret emotions than most parents think, it’s important we allow them express themselves by listening to them.

“Values are eroding because parents are too busy but when is the essence of all your work when your child cannot harness his or her gifts. We must remember that the Bible says the gift of a man will make ways for him,” she said.
