Hello is that Sister Tosin Taiwo?
This is Worldpulse Olutosin, you promised to volunteer with us at the riverside

Oh yes, I am on my way, I am light in complexion and wearing a white Shirt.

Oh that's great, I am wearing a tie and dye blue dress.

Ok Sister Tosin, you are in good hands. I will be waiting aat the jetty. Thanks so much for volunteering.

Hello is that Olutosin
Oh yes, who am I speaking with?

Its Celine Osukwu

Oh my Worldpulse sister, I really need your support as regards my cooking bag.

Yes, I have sent my address through SMS. How are your daughters? And my regards to your husband.
Thanks sister Celine.

Oh yes sister Busayo,I was able to pay

Hello, I am Chinyere of Worldpulse, my sister said....
Oh yes, I am Olutosin come in and have your seat.

Oh yes, I always write on Worldpulse but nobody comments and I think they don't like what I write but I want to write.
Oh my sister, its not like that, we did not start to become one in a day. Worldpulse is your World!!!! It is our World!!!it is our Pulse.

These were just few of the conversations I had with some of my Worldpulse Sisters. You are free to join the family and I just wish that all Worldpulse members in different countries would come together as sisters and brothers.

Last week, I received a mail from Jennifer Ruwart, she was the Online Manager of Pulsewire in 2009, I was selected among the inaugural participants in her Moyo Jasisri's Advancing Women Entrepreneur program. She got an investor for my cooking bag!!!!!!!!!!!!
Several of the opportunities we have today were what we received through Worldpulse.

Even if no one responds today, keep on writing. The World is counting our Pulse. Mother Earth will reward those ho replenish the Voiceles.

We are one; we are together. Keep on Scribbling.

You said it!

Dear Sis Oulsin

Agree with you a thousand percent! From my experience, we ARE being heard, whether replied to or not. The key is to keep talking.

Sister Tosin

We write not because people comment, but because we hope they read what we write and if it transforms the life of just one person then we would have done a wonderful deed. And you are right, worldpulse is a wonderful avenue to get our voices heard.

Thanks Sisters

I appreciate every comment. Actually, I'd loved to respond to each comment but the internet is bad.

Thanks Stella Paul. We are the voice.

Breese darling, we all are star. Jennifer announced the programme. I did not want to apply but 2009 VOF correspondent in Botswana, Liba Mtunzi; she came to spent 3 weeks in my house in March-April 2011!!!! Encouraged me to Apply. After series of hiccups, Jennifer sent the link and I applied, I think 5 of the applicants are 2009 VOF correspondents. The programme is still ongoing; it is a 5 month training but she has gotten an investor for the cooking bag about a week ago.

The next training will start hopefully in April and I will post it in Offer section of Resource Exchange.

@ Chinyere; we will continue to be the voice of the Voiceless. Anytime. Anywhere. Anyhow.

Thanks sisters.

You are my inpiration too!!

My love, do you remember how hard it is to be online in the developing World?

Sometimes you are online, the connection is so slow, you type www.world , about to complete it aand the internet will cut off, for 5 minutes, you don't haave where to complete it, And when complaining, I remembered those who had to cover miles to post their articles. I will quickly relax. Then wait.

We are the sheroes and heroes of the World. We are the Queens of Queendoms and Kings of Kingdoms. The Changemakers and Trailblazers. Let's keep on working in our communities. You are my inspiration; my sister.
