Resolutions and Solutions
I believe that major change in society is brought about when a foundation has been laid to empower and educate women. Women experience various situations that affect development directly and indirectly mostly due to injustices done to them or even negligence and also by them being looked down upon. Some girls and women need basic knowledge and skills while others need empowerment and encouragement to be proud of themselves, to find inner strength and motivation for life despite their hardships and situations. Some need to know that there are opportunities out there for them and that they can equally stand out and be counted and pursue dreams and careers apart from simple domestic roles. Some need the motivating force and energy that comes from freedom and liberation from situations of conflict and abuse. They need a hand of hope and warmth to guide them and comfort them.
The major challenges surrounding this change includes the lack of resources and manpower to bring these women together and educate them-especially those who are less privileged or are tied down by traditions and cultures that prevent social growth and development. If there can be a way to mobilize fellow women who are in a position to help educate others into a single unit or one voice, many of the challenges will be conquered and many lives will be impacted. It’s in this regard that I hope to participate in Pulsewire in whatever capacity to be a part of the voice of change and the voice of hope.
The opportunity to empower others comes through sharing experiences and thought. I believe there are very many well educated and experienced women who are resourceful with words of wisdom and the know-how on how to work with women and bring out the best in them. Pulsewire is a means of connecting such women and bringing the world closer together with a common goal. This is instrumental in bringing about change today and in the future.
Some of the solutions including taking a step to be counted as a voice of change. By simply acknowledging the need in a woman’s world today is the first step in addressing the issues surrounding her. I am also involved in a not-for-profit organization- Vessels International which aims to reach out and empower women at risk, including widows and girls who have been through various hardships and empower them in various ways. I believe as I network, partner and research and go through training, even through Pulsewire on better ways of reaching out to women, more solutions will be achieved. It is a journey.
Pulsewire is a means of cooperation, education, publishing and creating awareness, networking and collaborating with other women either by knowledge and virtual willpower, or simply by sharing with each other. My story may be the encouragement of the hour to help somebody else stand strong and overcome.
