FULL PROPOSAL APPLICANT INFORMATION Yousif Mohammed Haroun Kafi Address : Contacts: Email : 1.1. In 12 years of my solemn experience since I started dating I have been very keen on relationship matters and the effects of them. It is a responsibility that both partners undertake to better themselves through every way possible with respect, determination, sacrifices, patience but yet again hard work and a lot of investment through time, education, development physically, socially, mentally considering spirituality and maintain ethics so as to avoid toxic experiences. Having gone through that it is only seconded that through such consideration then we create times for change and adjustment in every situation that provides itself whether positive or negative. RESPONSE : Mido. I am in the belief that relationships can be fulfilling and purposeful, I always desired an extraordinary marriage, one that is intentional and focused. One where my husband and I can intentionally build each other up and work together on a unified vision and really experience the fullness of partnership Spiritually, emotionally, physically, psychologically, sexually, financially, in business and in all other relevant aspects to our union and the quality of life we build together. Nothing extraordinary just occurs, it has to be dreamed, planned, created and implemented for it to become a reality. This is the mindset I have toward marriage and life with my husband. It’s effort, commitment, compromise, understanding and purpose. As unusual as this may be, it is the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for me. This also indicates how you have considered your desire for me and it shows me how serious you are, I want more than words and this is a start that shows me your level of commitment and I really appreciate it. Yousif I am clear about what I bring to the table and want you to be clear and forthcoming just the same, As we commit to a lifetime of loving each other and getting to know each other I want to know that you have and will determine to not giving up on us in spite of the challenges, highlights and things to come. I want a life partner and I am committed to offer you the same level of commitment. Marriage is something you get into with eyes wide open, some people say it’s the romance that leads the way but I beg to differ love is so much more than romantic feelings it is a resolution a commitment and within the boundaries of commitment two people cultivate love. When God fashioned Eve for Adam there was no ‘dating’ period so to speak, they were fashioned for each other and they were given the boundaries of commitment to cultivate this love, therefore I think the most romantic thing is a very clear and intentional pursuit and this is precisely what you have done. 2.

The rough estimate of how many people the project will be able to reach/support through the development stage should be (7) (Continue or adjust) RESPONSE: Mido Babe, I love the rough estimate of 7, I will propose to you that we aim for a total of 4 children including Shima. God willing we are blessed with twins and that would total the beneficiaries to 7 but I would prefer to only birth 3 times. I hope you are content with that. I will not expect for you to have any other children except by me. I will be open to adoption perhaps if we have the resources, time and capacity to raise more than the 4 children. I want you to seriously consider this as I would like us to be on the same page and agree together and be content with the decision we make in regards to number of children.

I ask for you to be there with me at all appointments, and significant moments in our children’s lives. I ask for you to determine to care for me during all stages of pregnancy, It’s a journey I would very much love to experience with you by my side. 2.4 Role of the community : The community will also have a role to play at some time and what I mean by is the locality or place where we shall unfold our marriage and plan our future in. There will be a lot of consideration when it comes to this matter because I only feel that it is wise to choose a place with a surrounding that will be healthy enough for our children including Mido and I to advance in when it comes to accessibility , health, education, development and also a standard and remarkable place with an economy that we can invest in to be precise. It is very reasonable to be in a community where we can embrace and pursue opportunities that enhance well being, broaden and build resources and also foster a sense of purpose and meaning to life. (Continue if any) RESPONSE: Mido I want to thank you for being willing to relocate to Brisbane Australia, I know that it is a big decision and I know that you have considered the options and made the decision that best suits our future, our marriage, our children, our purpose and influence. I believe that the motive of your decision is to lead us well and partner with me to build a life by intentional design with me. I appreciate your proactive approach and commit to creating a vision of the life we see and developing a strategy and a plan. I commit to having fun with you, enjoying each other and enjoying the life we design together. It is going to require a unique approach because we have committed to not be passive about the way we build our lives, we will do the work necessary to experience the life we desire. I propose that we take the following exercises as part of the process 1. Get clear about the expectations we have of each other 2. Get clear about our visions and work on blending them together so that we are working towards a united mission and vision in our marriage 3. Create a mission statement for our marriage 4. Create a vision statement of the life we see 5. Commit to praying together about our life. 6. Premarital Counselling courses 7. Any other suggestions by you are welcome… 2.5 Thematic area(s) to be worked on: 1) Health: in this case here we have to consider a place accessible enough and affordable Incase but God forbids when times of sickness comes. It is preferable to be at a place where there are no plagues, viruses etc and close enough to access health services and benefits as well. 2) Development: this is a core and critical mandate that we have to take heads on personally as well as as a family. Here we shall break it down into several fields which will include but not limit us to, a. New product development which will concern a plan undertaken to solve another problem and this will include • Education for all • Business capital • (Continue) • I would like for us to brainstorm all possible ideas to generate several streams of income as I would like us not to be dependent exclusively on jobs as they can be volatile based on the economy, I think COVID has shown us how unreliable traditional jobs can be to create stability for the future. Ideally I would like us to create a minimum of 7 different streams of income over the next couple of years. b. Project is the product development where it shall be to provide support to others ie ourselves and children and will include • Financial plans for personal development • Savings for all • (Continue) • I also propose an inheritance plan commencing the birth of each child ( investment shares for them and saving accounts in their name for their education, I would like us to gift our children with debt free education, this also includes a plan for Shima I would like her to have access to the best education and lifestyle we are able to provide her - this plan to include her in the planning of raising our children can commence in our first year of marriage. I also ask you to seriously consider tithing and offering and giving to be part of our financial lifestyle no matter how little or how much we make c. Infrastructure project where it is a priority to secure a humble home and properties for our family as a whole • House • Car • (Continue) • I agree, we can begin to develop a plan and a checklist of the requirements necessary to make this a reality, the first thing is to get on the same page financially and this means while we are planning our future we can engage in lengthy conversations on finances, educate ourselves on financial management, figure out our financial expectations and key strengths and how we can support each other financially. 3) Management: this here will be to asses the function and the performance of the goals set all round and shall entail • Assessment of the budget set and the expenditure • Goal (realistic or not) • Time frame • (Continue) 4) Financial goal: this is a very important key subject and we will not overlook it at all. And some of the focus will be set to • Update our insurance • Create budget for everything • Relooking at several credit card options • (Continue) I would love for us to discuss and develop a financial plan and lifestyle that is debt free and doesn’t rely on credit for functionality, some of the plans i propose is creating and living within our means and spend less than we make, save for our future and live a debt free lifestyle, adjust our lifestyle gradually based on our income, discuss and develop a strategy to support our extended family financially where necessary with out causing strain and conflict on our finances, marriage and relationship. Set very clear boundaries financially for our extended family especially considering the nature of our culture and the issues we have both witnessed and experienced financially in our families of origin. I also would like us to be a united front in our descisions, I would like for you to include me in the decision making you and Shima’s mom take concerning her as I don’t want to be excluded from any part of your life, I would like some very clear boundaries between you and Shimas mom and would like that your co-parenting relationship doesn’t cause any strain on our relationship. 5) • • Spirituality: Know our relationship with Heavenly Father does exist (Continue) This is perhaps the most important aspect of life to me, I desire for you to not just support my spirituality but commit to getting to know God for yourself. I will support you on your journey of spiritual growth and development. I desire for us to take some small practical steps daily without compromise. 1. Daily devotions daily not the Youversion Bible app 2. Pray together at least 3 times a week, fast together and once you’re here attend church with me and raise our children with Christian values and beliefs. Please consider this, lets discuss this and agree together, so that this is a point that isn’t debated in the future and we are both happy with the descisions we make spiritually. 2.7 Expected goal and learning objective(s): The overall goal of this project is to have a healthy comfortable affordable standard of living and investment and this has to do with several objectives that we will focus to attain and learn more on our journey. We shall set up short term goals that will be personal and as a family as well and they have to be specific, measurable, accurate, reliable and timely and we have to prioritize them, present them, be positive, precise, performance based, practical etc and by doing this will ease and help maintain our balance, strengthen our focus, enhance our productivity, manage our stress levels, sustain our motivation and increase our happiness in the long run which is where our longterm goals is focused on.

At some point it may include our parents and in-laws but we will not rely on that.(Continue) 2.12 Monitoring and evaluation: When it comes to this, there will be several ways to monitor and evaluate different stages of our marriage and compare results. Some of the ways we can do that is by I. Set goals and break them down ie weekly, monthly, yearly etc II. Compare the level of education reached and new skills learned III. IV. V. VI. VII. VIII. IX. X. Level of happiness in our lives ( how happy and contented are we) Evaluate our standard of living How open is the family when it comes to sharing what they have in mind and whatsoever Know our savings Look at our investments and compare liquid and solid assets Evaluate our properties Know our health care benefits (Continue) I also agree with this point, lets create a tradition of monthly check ins to evaluate our goals, our progress, level of happiness and results. Lets start this immediately should we do this at the beginning or end of each month? Lets make it a goal date day, lets make this one of out traditions. 2.13 Advocacy : Here I believe the only way we will be able to do this is by knowing how much of an impact we make throughout our time together to the people we love and the community as well.
