Hello from World Pulse,

Hello from World Pulse, Rebecca.

You have reached out to World Pulse, and we are grateful for your presence.

I act as a volunteer World Pulse welcomer for new WP members and listener for other journal entries. This is some of the most exciting and rewarding work I've ever done. Through this effort, I have become a world volunteer.

I sat, for many years on boards of USA non-profits; we had obstacles, but they were mostly not cultural. The biggest obstacle I've faced in my WP work is cultural misunderstandings. Most tend to believe that the way they grew up is the "correct" way to behave. A few times, I've had issues with those who felt that something I did or said was "inappropriate." The beauty of World Pulse is that we are encouraged to act as sister/brothers, and that the staff is very responsive when I bring issues to them.

I am wondering whether you have found any World Pulse efforts that really stir you to action. Our searchable site has so many examples of females empowering each other through education and encouragement, that there is certain to have inspiration for all.

We'd love to hear from you again.

Yvette
