Turning back to my roots

Tags:
A goat gift

After three months of "new job challenges", I am returning back home. To my great family World Pulse, I have lost weight, with lots of scratches here and there because I was missing home love.

Yes I am busy supporting the grassroots children and families in the rural communities in Uganda, good job, many now study in permanent classrooms, have toilets in place, afford mid day meals, parents supported with income generating acativities BUT I need renewal of my strength, mind from my roots, the BIG family World Pulse.

For those who may not know me; I am not a celebrity neither the Vice President of Uganda nor the CEO of World Bank. I am a voice that was ignited here in World Pulse. I am a voice for change and a change maker.

So grateful for the impact of Voices of Our Future and World Pulse in my life. Listen to me; if you need sense of direction, courage to move on, strength to carry on, vision with purpose, this is the arena. Voices of Our Future, World Pulse, no one speaks for me, I speak for myself. I am back. Back to my brothers and sisters and here to stay!

Thank you sister

Dear Olutosin,
Thanks for your comment. I am deep in the rural areas, when the internet allows I can access this great family.
Thanks and may you too live long.

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.

Thank you Rachael

I am just started Rachael, today I was talking to young girls at school, 12-15 years of age, inquiring about the sanitary towels. They challenged me; these ones are so empowered and without fear, the 15 girls told me that they (some) do not have knickers, others have had two since childhood, others have 5 since childhood, these include the torn ones, overran by needles over and over. I just realized that I need to secure some knickers for these young girls as my own initiative. Many are silent but burning in need amidst poverty.
When I am in the field, I interact with over 600 girls a week.

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.
