Welcome Ruth!

Welcome to Pulse Wire! I (as well as many others I am sure) am so glad that you are here. I think that your passion for reaching out to girls and helping them to not only find a vocation but to express themselves creatively is astounding and beautiful. What you are doing is remarkable!

I look forward to reading more about your and the girls' work. Do you have pictures of the cakes and sugar work that the girls do? Are there any funny or uplifting stories about the girls? Can you tell us more about the situation in Cambodia of girls that are in sex work?

Again, I very much look forward to reading more about your work and your journey.

Much Peace and Love sent to you:

Ruth, it is a joy to welcome a fellow Australasian to PulseWire. How did you hear about us? I look forward to reading all about your program which sounds very inspiring. You are doing such important work and I applaud you for all your efforts in empowering women and young girls.

We have a few members from Cambodia and Australia, whom you can find by going to the member directory and conducting a search by country at the top of the page. I hope you will be inspired to share with us some of the issues and success stories you have encountered as you lead these women on the path to empowerment -- they may provide insight and inspiration for others.

There are also many amazing groups here, full of inspired and strong voices. I have no doubt you will find PulseWire to be engaging and thought-provoking. Welcome to the sisterhood of rising voices.
