Community Update

World Pulse Toolkits Available!

At World Pulse, we recognize the need for ongoing learning—for you and for your community! Our toolkits are all available here.

We are especially excited to share our signature Citizen Journalism and Digital Empowerment Curriculum. Start learning today!

Thank You for Participating!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the My Story Writing Opportunity. We were blown away by the response as over 150 submissions poured in before the deadline and flooded PulseWire with moving, inspiring and beautiful stories on "Holding Hands."

We received submissions from many new voices in the community, as well as from members who haven't shared in some time. It is exciting to see new connections being made, deeper dialogue happening through comments, and a greater sense of community blossoming as PulseWire grows and our seasoned members lead and encourage new members in raising our voices for change!

We heard stories for the first time from women in Turkmenistan, Macedonia, Belarus and Papua New Guinea. Women from 48 different countries across the globe weighed in on their own personal experiences and interpretations on Holding Hands and your stories now form a powerful tapestry of testimony on this single theme as we virtually hold hands and make a bridge across oceans with our voices.

Our team of Listeners are currently reading through the submissions and evaluating them based on the criteria we provided you with. In the next few weeks our Editorial selection panel will make their final decision on the top three stories for publication that will be featured in Embody, the next edition of World Pulse Magazine, and which will each receive a $100 honorarium. Three to five additional stories will also appear in the magazine, however those will not be announced until closer to print time as it will depend on the space available and final layout. So stay tuned for the upcoming announcements!

Regardless of whether your story is chosen, it will live here on PulseWire as part of a global collection of stories that can be read, shared, enjoyed and discussed for years to come.

I encourage you to read the stories written by your global sisters to get a sense of the power within this beautiful collection of voices. And keep raising your voice, sharing your stories, reporting on issues in your community, and reaching out to your PulseWire sisters for companionship, support, collaboration and solidarity.

Together we make a powerful force!

In friendship,
Jade

Help the fruits of Kenya

The fruits of Kenya is fading away through Politics,help me raise my voice;;;;;
On 6/13/2010 it was a black day for Kenyans who woke up to go and say thank you to their God at Uhuru Park Garden,guess what happened?it was a disaster through planted explosions planted by unknown people.It is just 2 years after KENYA lost brothers and sisters through Political and ethnic clashes,it was a masacre .Help me raise my voice to Politicians in Pretense of GOD-BISHOPS,it a shame that Kenya has bishop politicians in parliament,they went for a permit to hold a prayer crusade,which they were given,instead of a prayer rally they were on the [NO]Campaign for the referendum.The large crowd went for a prayer crusade not a [NO] CAMPAIGN.Parents carried their children for prayers and reaching there ,they found a different thing,so many families did not go back home,they found themselves dead,some found themselves in the Hospital with deep wounds and burns, some woke up with big bandages after operation,and some still disappearing.Today the same Bishops -are promising to hold another rally with the motive of campaign.The Pulse wire Group help me raise my voice for peace in our country.Follow about this topic in the BBC news Kenya.

The Burman

World pulse has been serving as a window for me to see through things in many countries and to learn the beautiful essence of writings. "Holding Hands" is the first essay I posted on World Pulse, but this will not be my last one. Jade! I like what you have mentioned..........."Regardless of whether your story is chosen, it will live here on PulseWire as part of a global collection of stories that can be read, shared, enjoyed and discussed for years to come. "
For next times I am going to pass out cultures, beliefs, and values from one of the southeast Asain countries called "Burma" via my writings.
I am simply happy to be introduced to this website.
I now feel like a writer!
Take care,
Jade
