World Pulse Joins the Women and the Web Alliance!

World Pulse is honored to join the Women and the Web Alliance, a groundbreaking public-private partnership which aims to create a movement addressing the gendered Internet gap by bringing more than 600,000 young women online in Nigeria and Kenya in the next three years.

World Pulse will collaborate with USAID, NetHope, Intel Corporation, World Vision, UN Women, and Women in Technology in Nigeria to transform the lives and livelihoods of girls and women in Africa through digital literacy training, relevant content, policy work, and online social networks.

World Pulse will provide digital empowerment training and the peer network of support to sustain women’s engagement and empowerment online. Building on our strong networks in sub-Saharan Africa, World Pulse will use our digital platform to unite and amplify young women’s voices, solutions, and impact worldwide.

By introducing women to the Internet, sustaining their engagement and use of technology as a tool for social and economic empowerment, we are building a future where every woman and girl believes in the power of her own voice and uses it to build a free and equitable world where all life thrives.

The Alliance was announced at the U.S.-Africa Leaders’ Summit event, Investing in Women: Strengthening Africa, hosted by the White House, the George W. Bush Institute, and the US Department of State. The event convened African First Spouses from more than 35 countries; non-governmental organization and non-profit leaders; private sector partners; faith-based and grassroots organizations; and other leading experts.

This is a Briliant Idea and great. Amplify solution to many Women and Girls must include a solution that include those Girls found. "bring Back our Girls" to Nigéria hás reached and motivated "our Girls" who dare to escape and talk for themselves. Free Internet for Urgent Response, alarme and communication is needed in the process of Construction of secure Internet and empowerment of more Women in Africa.

Urgent Intervention is needed here and now. Think of a little Girls finally Managed to run away from Boko Haram or other Human Traffikers, unmfortupnately thousands and thousands miles away from their homes and Communities. In other continentes.

The Girls have no where to go. They therefore come to United Women of Africa. If any Woman or Girls understand the character of Urgence of This Message, at least 2 Girls or more will be back home.

Awesome.

This is a great opportunity, yet again and milestone for World Pulse to empower women in making their voices heard. So glad that Kenya is benefiting. I would love to participate in some way and would wish to request if possible, that you would engage those of us in the network to be part of it, either conducting the trainings or otherwise....empower us to empower others!

Thanks and best regards.
