My journal

Hello All,
I am still working on my journal with inserts from rural community members who are helping liberate themselves from poverty. Last week, i spoke to a couple of women and asked them what they wanted to have in order to feel empowered. They said a voice and the ability to make decisions for themselves. They also mentioned financial empowerment as well as involvement in community activities. I hope to collate all and finish up with my journal.

Thank you

Hi Ato,
Akwaaba to Pulsewire the place that gives you space for the voice of the voiceless in hidden corners of the world.

I have found so much inspiration and wisdom on this network and I have also had the opportunity to write about issues that affect girls and women in Ghana.

I am personally glad to find you here so together we can help increase the volume of the silent yet urgent voices of our sisters and brothers in Ghana to the world.

I love the work you do and i admire the heart with which you do it with. All the best
