    Smile LLL leaders...what do you do?

    Hello, im new here . I am living in Japan and soon will become LLL member here. However the ultimate goal is when i move back to lebanon (my homecountry) to start LLL group there, cause there is none and breasfeeding is a catastrophe. ...so now im preparing and thinking over. just wanted some suggestions from here, how do you prepare? like what steps to do take (paper work) etc....what do you usually do later? like contact hospitals or schools. what kind of activities do you do? sorry for so many questions it just seems a whole new world to me, don't really know where to start and what to prepare for... thanx a lot!

    Hi Imoussama,

    A good place to start would be here: http://www.lalecheleague.org/FAQ/leader.html Follow the links to read more about the overview of training curriculum.

    If you meet the prerequisites, there's no reason you can't be an isolated Applicant; an isolated Leader, and start a new Group!

    You can also go here: http://www.lalecheleague.org/webindex.html and contact the Leader closest to you, wherever that may be. You'll want to get into contact with a Leader Accreditation Department representative for those countries, and work from there. There was also another gal who was in that region and thinking of pursuing application, iir.

    http://forums.llli.org/showthread.php?t=8074 has some good info.

    Do let us know how things work out for you!

    WarmLLLy,
    Tallis

    I hope you can find a group to attend in Japan!
    each group has its own way of holding meetings and things that they do so you would get a bunch of diffent answers for your question.
    culture in the country might affect what you can do!
    But even helping a few moms/and baby pairs would be worth it.
    this link might help

    thanx a lot everyone! i have already attended one meeting in my area. and will attend every meeting until i leave. and i have contacted LLL leader here to let her know i am interested in establishing new group and becoming a leader. i think it is a little bit early for me to talk about leadership cause i havent been to the meeting but once, however we are moving soon and i want to make sure i understand everything and take all the advantages i have here, before we move to somewhere there is no LLL. i just have one more question in mind: what is the difference between LLL and LLLI? thanx a lot again
