Hi Lillian,

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!

Your passion for ending gender based violence is inspiring and I think you will find our community to be a great place for collaborating minds with women who are like you - committed to this cause.

Here are a few members you might want to connect with. The easiest way to connect with someone is to make a comment on their journal, add them to your community or send a private message.

Welcome to Pulsewire!

It's exciting to have you here and to learn a bit about you. We all get a little more empowered when more voices join the choir! Please feel free to share your thoughts, stories and encouragement. Hopefully you enjoy becoming a part of this global community.

Your passion for ending GBV is palpable. Thank you for doing the work that you do and sharing it with us. As Jade mentioned, there are many resources available for you here on WP. I hope they are of assistance to you.

I look forward to seeing more of you online and hearing more of your voice.

Take care,
Maria

RE:THANK YOU FOR YOUR MESSAGE

Dear Maria,
It is great to hear from you and get those words of strength .I must confess that we are trying to reach some end of the quite tragical road to end GBV but it needs alot of joined efforts as well as consultation.For instance, one thing that has made me going is working in team.A nd most occasion I found myself as a team leader and any movement that we make I always try to succeed so that I get lots of encouragement to myself and the survivors.I have a proposal that I have been working on which targets Post election survivors especially women and children who were abused as well as the community who were affected . Maria It has been hard on these group especially those who went to their homes direct without going to the camps during the PEV period.I enjoy most working with this group because I get to know alot more and learn new methods and types of abuses.One thing that was never tackled well is post trauma counseling the GOK as well as other other NGOs has been focusing alot on compensation and not the inner most being of the individual ,Psychological support. my approach will be training young talented people to pass any information as well as bring up the morale of this unfortunate group.

Great to write to me

Dear Michelle ,
I am glad you share the same name with my daughter.Anyway I feel that I belong in community where women are enthusiastic and are there to support their fellows.Like i said earlier to Maria we need an added effort to overcome the problems that we may be facing.My questions are as follows:
a)do have some conference where women meet and share what they encounter in their lives?
b)do have forums where activist like me attend so that we get to meet all the members of WP?
C)Do have exchange programmes?
these are just but some of the questions that I had in mind and I shall be asking more if need be.

Great questions!

Hi Lillian,

Great questions! Just a quick tip - when responding to someone's comment, make sure to click on "reply" at the bottom of their comment box, or a notification will not be sent to them and they won't know that you responded.

I'd like to help answer your questions, so please see below:

a) World Pulse does not currently hold any conferences. However, we are hoping to kick off some PulseWire Meet-ups soon, so that women on PulseWire can meet face to face in cities around the world (Nairobi especially as we have so many members here) and deepen their relationships, conversations and collaboration. So stay tuned! I suggest checking the Resource ExChange from time to time, as this is a place where members often post scholarships to conferences around the world.

b) Have you looked through PulseWire Groups? There are numerous groups that are categorized by topic, so that you can have deeper topical conversations with women here on PulseWire. Here are a few groups that you might be interested in joining based on the information you shared on your profile. If you're interested, join the group and see what discussions are happening in the group journal, or start a new conversation by contributing your own post to the group journal.

Jambo, Kenya Cafe
Discuss strategies and ideas about how to help connect Kenyan women and community groups working for social change with women globally.

Another good way to reach the women of PulseWire is to write in your own, personal journal. I encourage you to use your journal as a place to introduce yourself, your work and your passions to the PulseWire community. 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.

c) We currently do not have any exchange programs, but do have a citizen journalism training program that you can apply for. The application process will begin this coming summer/fall so stay tuned for the announcements. You can learn more about the program, Voices of Our Future, here: http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/programs/world-pulse-voices-of-our-f...

Thanks for the great questions! I hope that I helped answer them - and please continue asking and utilizing PulseWire.... it's YOUR community!

Warm regards,
Jade
