A warm welcome!

Hi Judith,

I'm so glad you found PulseWire! Many of our members are dedicated to fair trade and I know you will find a lot of support here. World Pulse published an article recently on women's fair trade that you should check out if you haven't already seen it. Let me know if you have any questions about the community and I will help to get you started. I look forward to hearing more from you and seeing some of the wonderful things created by your artisans!

Be well,
Michelle

Welcome

Hi Judith,

Welcome to PulseWire. We are thrilled to have you as a new member in our thriving community of women who are lifting their voices in the name of empowerment and connecting across borders to make positive change for women everywhere!

I looked at your website and find the handiwork to be so beautiful! I hope that you can utilize PulseWire to network, get exposure for your company, but also to share the stories of the women artisans that you work with. The best way to share your voice and address the community is by writing in your journal. Think of your journal as a blog, where you can speak your mind and reach an audience of over 3000 women and supporters of women's initiatives. Check out what others are writing about in Voices Rising. I think that you will find PulseWire to be an exciting place to garner support, make connections and share your story!

Also, I encourage you to join the group: Fair Trade: It's only fair, A place for those who believe in, work for, and promote fair trade. Feel free to re-engage this group by contributing to the group journal.

Warm regards,
Jade

Hello!

So glad to see that you have found PulseWire! You will find an amazing community of women who are sharing their stories. I would love to hear more about your story. How do you connect with these artisans? Are you an artist yourself? What are some of the challenges that artisans face?

I also encourage you to explore other areas of this website. The Resource Exchange (http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/exchange) might be a good place for you to let others know about your website.

Wherever your explorations lead you, I know you will enjoy the warmth of this community!
In Peace,
Marlies

Thank you all

Thank you all for the welcome. I feel privileged to be part of pulse wire. It’s also wonderful to know you all. I feel this is now my new home where all women should belong.

I have seen there is a lot of support from pulse wire especially towards the work that I do. I have so many questions about the community since I am new and I will appreciate your assistance.

Leah, we have a Website (www.africancraftsupplies.com) where we market our product online though the response is very low. I am hoping we will get clients through pulse wire. We are located in Nairobi at East Africa Institute of Certified Studies, Lengo House 2nd floor along Tom Mboya Street.

Warm regards

Judith
