We're Sharing your Needs with the World!
You may notice some changes around WorldPulse.com and we're thrilled to unveil our new Homepage design! This is the first of new design phases for the evolution of our site. While not much has changed on PulseWire, we invite you to share your needs with us by emailing your ideas and feature requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. The next few months we will be planning the role-out of innovative changes to make our community platform more easy to navigate, find community members to connect with, dive into discussions, access the resources you need, and share your story with the world.
Also check out our new Magazine page and a brand new feature for World Pulse - our Action Center. This is a place where our audience, especially those from the global north, can dive into the women's movement and take concrete action for change. We will be spotlighting your Resource Exchange items as the #1 way that people can make a difference, so this is a real opportunity to utilize this feature for posting the needs and offers of your organization, initiative or personal project.
If you haven't posted in the Resource Exchange yet, I encourage you to do so! It's a simple and effective way to put your needs out there, or offer your services. You never know who may answer your post! Think of the Resource Exchange as a global bulletin board for the women's movement.
For example... Rhonda has recently launched a women's health center in Nairobi, Kenya. Her organization is just getting off the ground and has lots of needs. One of Rhonda's basic needs is advice! We all could use some seasoned advice from experts on how to be successful in manifesting our dreams. And imagine how many other people around the world work in women's health centers, have experience in starting up a non-profit,have done research in maternal health, or has a working business model to share? Rhonda can create a "Need" in our Resource Exchange for "Women's Health Center Advisors."
The idea that investing in women is the key to ending global poverty, is catching like wildfire. And as a communications platform for this movement, people are coming to World Pulse looking to get involved and invest in grassroots women leaders worldwide, because they know that you hold the key. When they reach our Action Center, and see Rhonda's "Need", there is likely to be someone willing to offer their expertise.
And Rhonda needn't stop there. She could also post a "Need" for supplies - like sanitary napkins or medical instruments. Maybe Rhonda is looking for volunteers to staff her clinic. She can also make a post for that too! Whatever Rhonda's needs are, I suggest that she includes as much information as possible about her center, her mission statement, her goals, and her vision for women's health in her community. She should also update her PulseWire profile to reflect her personal journey that has led her to open a women's health center. The more someone can connect with Rhonda and understand her vision, the more likely they are to support her.
And don't forget to post your offers! Susanna runs an artisan cooperative in Otovalo, Ecuador. She's always looking for fair trade businesses to work with. I recommend she create an "Offer" in the Resource Exchange for "Business Opportunity: Fair-Trade Ecuadorian Pottery by Women Artisans". She's also holding an artisan workshop for visitors to learn the traditional art of weaving. She could post an "Offer" for "Traditional Weaving Workshops in Otovalo, Ecuador."
The possibilities are endless. Become the next spotlight in our Action Center and reach a worldwide network of supporters!
