The First Step
I have been talking about the word “CHANGE” since I started my journey on worldpulse. Apparently, this dynamic and powerful word cannot be attained in a day or after I write a paragraph on it. Change is much more than that. It firstly, requires you to change the perception of people around you. It requires you to start the process, to initiate change the mindset of people around you.
I am an amateur in the field of development. Nonetheless, I have always wanted to focus my program on children and education. Being a woman, I have wanted female children to develop themselves as a smarter, capable and strong workforce for tomorrow. I would certainly like to initiate a program in the rural areas where women get fewer opportunities. I want to see at least one educated, civilized and optimistic village in my life and I want to work for it.
But things aren’t all that simple. There are people who love things to remain static. Change is not welcomed everywhere. Therefore, the first barrier would be changing people’s mind. You need to bring an alteration in the mindset of the people to do that. It needs patience and perseverance. Financial resources don’t fall from the tree as well. You need support and an initiation on your own to do that.
I am just beginning now. While travelling for the voluntary work that I do during my free time, I observe around and think what the few factors that need improvement. After I have a concrete solution on my mind, my first step would be to share it, talk to everyone around me and also my worldpulse community. And when my voice is heard, I will have found the solution to my barrier. I will have taken my first step towards the word CHANGE, my most desired ambition. Once people start supporting my vision, the rest of the actions will be easier to complete.
To do such tasks alone is not at all easy. You cannot just manage the whole thing by yourself. But I have worldpusle now. I can easily share my ideas. I can ask for suggestions with my fellow sisters on worldpulse for new ideas. I can invite them to work with me. I can become stronger. And then probably, in the end, I will not be walking alone anymore. I will get what I have wanted to see.
