Personal Development Plan

A life without goals is like a road trip without a map. The Personal Development Plan component of the CDF projects seeks to enable our children to identify their own long-term vision and motivate them to take steps for pursuing targets that are achievable in the short run. The process of drawing up the plan and putting their goals into actions gives them a chance to consider who they want to be, and what they want to achieve – a unique and important personal development experience.

How to implement

In the first two years of the project, participants draw up their Personal Development Plan (PDP) under the guidance of mentors and operators. The plan should include both short-term and long-term development goals, with specific action steps that set them on the path to achieve them. The development goals should support capacity enhancement, developing knowledge or skills around a particular hobby/interest, or to lay the foundation for further education or future career. In the third year of the project, CDF participants can make use of the targeted savings to implement their PDPs and the CDF project operators will monitor their progress of implementation.
