Meeting World Pulse at AWID Forum

It has been a busy week, and one in which I was fortunate enough to attend the 11th AWID (Association of Women's Rights in Development) conference in Cape Town, that took place from the 14th-17th November. It was an amazing event, with over 2200 people (the majority women) attending from all over the world. I was representing the Jumma Indigenous Peoples of the Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh, and had been invited as part of the International Indigenous Womens Network delegation.

I also met with Jensine Larsen for the first time, and the mightily impressive Leah from Kenya. It was great to actually meet Jensine and Leah, who I had read about and been in contact with over the past few months. Most of the time, when we meet people virtually, it takes years to finally meet in reality, so this was a welcome change.

All in all it was a really inspiring event with inspiring women and I hope to keep in touch with many who I met there. And to build on the friendships made and develop some interesting and important work, in the field of communications and peacebuilding.

Feel free to contact Ina for further information.
