THANK YOU to our entire World Pulse community — both long-time supporters and our new friends — for providing a warm and rousing welcome to World Pulse's 2012 awarding winning journalists — Hummingbird, Neema and Stella! This year's national tour crossed the US twice, touching down in 4 cities so that these grassroots leaders could share their stories, insights, and visions at 18+ forums and gatherings. While they have flown home, they have taken our hearts with them and built lasting connections that will cross all boundaries.

In gratitude for your partnership!

The World Pulse team

A Voice for Revolution in the World's Worst Place to Be a Woman

Neema Namadamu

Democratic Republic of the Congo DR Congo

“I don’t want to make a little noise—I want to change the paradigm!”

Afflicted by polio since the age of two, Neema grew up in the Eastern Congo, a region ravaged by an epidemic of sexual violence and war. Today she is an outspoken, tech-savvy woman mobilizing and empowering scores of women, including women with disabilities, to change the future of her nation. A determined visionary, she is also pushing to establish a national communication network to better connect rural Congolese people to the world.

Expertise: Disabled Rights, Environmental Protection, Peace Building in Conflict, Indigenous Rights, Internet Communications Technology

A Voice for Change in the Middle East


Syria Syria

"It is never too late to stop the damage. Together we can save the children of Syria."

As her country sinks into deepening violence and family members disappear, Hummingbird has broken through fear to find her voice. A member of Syria's Kurdish minority, she calls for an end to the horrors of a war where children are massacred in the streets by government forces. Her dream is to use digital media to transform Syria by unleashing women's concealed aspirations and wisdom to awaken the world to alternate paths to the nightmare unfolding across her country.

Expertise: Human Rights, Digital Media, Women’s Economic Empowerment, Ethnic Minority Rights

A Voice for the Rising Power of Women in India

Stella Paul

India India

"The women of India are a rising army of change makers, taking microloans to buy cell phones and start businesses, and fighting displacement, corruption, and environmental degradation."

Growing up in impoverished Northeast India, Stella barely survived as an unwanted girl child. Now, braving kidnappings and threats, she is telling the stories of marginalized women to a world audience and training women to find their voices and tell their own stories. For her, community-based media and citizen journalism are transformational keys to ending women's inequality.

Expertise: Climate Change, Food Security, Sustainable Development, Rural Empowerment, Conflict, Appropriate Technology, and Innovation
