My memory of Saint – Mother Teresa!!!

mother-teresa

 

Mother Teresa has been named a Saint; I had the honour and pleasure to meet her in the early nineties, when I had my charity, People Bridge. We sat on a bench with a cup of tea outside of her home in the middle of Calcutta, India for about 10 minutes‎ and chatted, or I should say, she spent most of the time yelling at the Sisters/Nuns their orders for the day (she was very short and tiny, but tough), but the work she did with the poor was remarkable and has been continued after her death!! When we were sitting on the bench, very big Indian men were arriving with all sorts of supplies that were being piled up, for donations. She was one amazing lady!!

About Betty Steinhauer

Betty Steinhauer was born in England and raised in Toronto, Canada. Even as a young mother, Betty was active in the community sitting on a number of boards and lending her expertise to various public organizations. In 1983, she founded Betty Steinhauer & Associates Ltd. a consulting firm where, for twenty-five years, she used her unique abilities to act as a catalyst, facilitator and advisor to both the private and public sectors, in forging relationships between organizations and/or individuals for mutually advantageous outcomes. For many years, Betty travelled widely in out-of-the-way areas of the world. As she travelled, the idea for The People Bridge Charitable Foundation was formed. The People Bridge was registered as a Canadian charity in 1997. The mandate of the Foundation was to facilitate important changes in the lives of ordinary people through small-scale charitable projects. Betty has now retired the Foundation that, during its lifetime, undertook over 100 projects worldwide, mostly in conjunction with organizations already working in the target area. Betty’s experience and expertise in business, along with the advice and assistance she receives from colleagues around the globe, give her a unique ability to spot the need and understand how it can be met. Betty has the unusual combination of an entrepreneur’s abilities and an intrinsic understanding of people. Betty has visited India seventeen times in the past twenty years to pursue her spiritual journey. She has frequently been a guest of the Brahma Kumaris and the World Spiritual University to study meditation and further her own spiritual life. Betty is currently active with the Steering Committee of the Spirit of Humanity Forum, in Reykjavik, Iceland. This is an annual Forum that, it is felt, will become to the spiritual world what the Davos Forum is to the financial world. Betty makes her home in Toronto, and has published her memoir “My Way”. She began her Nomadic Internship in the summer of 2013.

    So happy to see a positive response to this lady. As I have seen some vile stuff on the internet about her and her charity. Having a client who was under her care for 14 years, I have heard nothing but good things about her, thank you for confirming it.
