Or, feel free to start your own group, if you feel that passionate to do so. We don't have an India Group, or a South Asia Group, so we welcome you to jump right in, in any way you so desire!
I am interested in hearing about your work in South Asia. Where were you working primarily? What kind of Human Rights issues do focus on?
Do share with us, we are excited to hear from you!
If you have any questions, or if I can help in any way, please don't hesitate to ask.

Welcome!

My grandparents live in a Smithville in the States :)

I would love to hear more about your work with women and children. Do you work in literacy? Lifeskills? Do you work with a certain demographic?

WorldPulse has many people who are in South Asia. Let me know if you would like to be connected to people in your area or Asia.

Jody and Katie have both done a great job linking you to the groups of interest. I look forward to reading more about your journey.

Stay in peace and love,

Sharese

Hi Sharese!

What a pleasure to hear from you! I am in Smithville, Texas. Could it really be the same small town? How fun. Where are you?
I have been working with NGO's primarily in Karachi, Pakistan. While spending the last three years taking care of my mother (she is now in care facility) I assisted them by helping to write human rights programs and workbooks for them to take to their rural areas. Here in Smithville, I founded the soon-to-be-opened Smithville Comminity Clinic for those without health insurance. It's been an interesting ride to say the least. I've also been speaking about human rights in relations to other areas depending on the speaking agenda.
Please tell me about yourself. And, yes, I have a speical place in my heart for South Asians. Any connections would be greatly appreciated.
