Disappointed

This has not been what I had hoped. I have asked for help but have not received it. I look forward to an expansion of this site. But for now, it has not been the tool that I have longed for.

!!!!????

I wish you could be a bit more elaborate. May be we could discuss about your disappointment. WP should be a support site for us all.

Disappointed

Dear Grace,

Along with two other women from our group, I took the action to search for an online site to allow us to collarborate just with each and to also provide us an opportunity to connect more globally with other women. At first glance, WP seemed perfect. But then we started running in to issues. What caused me to write this entry is I requested help several days ago from those who maintain the site and I have heard nothing back. So I just felt the need to write a note stating my disappointment that something which started out with such promise is no longer appearing to be the full option we were hoping for.

WP does appear to be an amazing site. I just don't believe it will meet all our needs.

Thank you for responding.

Keep Up!

Hi,
I trust this finds you well enough.Life is a journey with complexities and outcomes that spring out like the lilies during summer time.The journey self discovery is fulfilling yet tasking because not every body will wish you well.It just calls for balance.I think that is why are humans to gauge the mood and balance the energy.
Good day

It is well.....

When I joined Worldpulse too, I thought they will solve everyone's challenges but later I discovered that it is an opprotunity, a platform a tree with so much opportunities lie in there if only you can do it Yourself.

I realised suddenly that Worldpulse has its own Vision, challenges and issues too which they are trying to address daily.

Worldpulse may not be able to solve all the challenges and meet everydream but it gives us the platform to re energise and confront the issues.

Once I approached Worldpulse to fund women's training on economic empowerment, it sounds so foolish later when I re-read their vision. The vision and mission matters but I believe that you can still approach individuals who have the same vision with you or some of their partner organisation who share your vison.

One thing that is certain is that Worldpulse has it s vision and it is focusing on that, I wish I could help you at this moment.

Solution

Dear Bird,
Thank you for raising your concern. I agree with sister Olutosin. I also thought the same; that WP would sponsor or support our organizations and struggles financially but it is not the case. This platform only helps us to network and connect with each other, a platform for sharing our voices. I think the users who have potential of supporting the potential organizations, individuals and dreams should DIRECTLY contact these individuals. If we keep sharing our dreams and visions here and yet nobody is moving forth to support them then we are merely making noise that will not yield a thing. We need to make a difference in this world but merely making noise with no further impact or support for sustainable developments will not do much for us crying out for change and actions, especially from the developing worlds.
Lets join HANDS and SUPPORT each other's dreams, funding and actions are the MAIN action that can help us make our dreams come true.

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

Thank you to all who have commented. This journal entry was really about my difficulty in obtaining information to resolve issues my group and I were experiencing. I certainly did not expect this tool to be a magic cure-all and definitely do appreciate WorldPulse's purpose and what it bring to global table. I did obtain the information I needed so thanks for those who assisted me.
