Voice is Peace

My voice is Power, Tool, Key, Change, Peace, Love.
I want to be a correspondent because I want to be a voice and representative for especially women, children and youths of Uganda, Africa and the whole world aimed at positive impacts at the global gender perspective .
Honest, strong, solutions-based journalism will help my community to know and value their rights, participate in development programmes within their reach, value women, children and their rights, connect with other communities world wide.

I believe everybody has the potential to live a better life. Given the Opportunity, Education and Motivation ANYONE can become someone admirable. Nobody is a NOBODY, everybody is SOMEBODY.

Hi Achieng

In 2004 i was comtempleting acceting an offer to work in Uganda. I don't remember exactly what prevented me to accept, but I was excited about the idea of being there just because I did not know much about Uganda.
I am glad you are part of us today (officially). I am sure I will know more about your country and that your voice will speak more than thousand spekers for women from your country.

You most welcome in the VOF.

Akwaaba and all the best!

Trust your HOPES, not your fears... Harmony

Thank you

Thank you Harmony,
Everything has its timing, it was not your right time to be here. You will know more about Uganda for I am here to voice her up. One thing I have learnt is "it is as it is meant to be", all we need to do is to appreciate whatever comes our way the way they come, someone invisible is at the wheels.

I am happy to be here!
Take care,

Achieng

Welcome, Beatrice

Hi! I'm so happy to see a Ugandan woman join the VOF group! I really enjoyed reading your posts. You have so much to say and you say it so well. I lived and worked in Kampala in the mid nineties. I was an Associate Director with Peace Corps, working in close collaboration with Mrs. Museveni's UWESO. I met the most amazing women all over the country doing amazing things. I look forward to hearing more from you!!!
