Great to see your reflections and the start of the translation work

Hi Midwives,

It is great to see your thoughts and reflections being shared in the group here. Thank you Bea for kicking off that conversation. I can understand that you might be feeling frustrated or a like you're not contributing sometimes. But, this is just a learning opportunity really. We're trying to do something pretty remarkable, and the fact that 100 women have signed up for accounts in this community speaks the the power of our efforts. As Neema said in the call last week, the next step is to have these women write their stories and get their voices out the the world.

So, thank you to those of you who have begun the process of working on translations. There are many, many more pieces in the queue to be converted to English, and I know it's not nearly as exciting as working one-on-one with a Campaign Liaison, but this is the most important job to be done right now. If you need some more direction on this work, just reach out to let me know...I'm happy to help!

Tomorrow we launch the Global EVAW Digital Action Campaign, so keep an eye on your inbox for that message. You'll see that we have some great videos from women journalists in the DRC to go along with all of the writing content that you've been a part of. Never doubt that you're helping to build a movement here!

Thank you again for your patience and hard-work to make this pilot program come together!

In partnership,
Scott

So far so good

Hi Bea,

Thanks for reaching out. Things are going great so far!

The stories from our Mama Shujaas in the eastern-DRC are rolling in every-day...currently up to 204!

Jade and Neema are in NYC to start the World Pulse LIVE tour this week, including meetings with UN leaders, our campaign partners at the Nobel Women's Initiative, and a presentation at the Clinton Global Initiative.

We are also working on arranging for funding to keep the Internet Cafe open for our Mama Shujaas through October, November and December...instead of our original deadline of the end of September. I'll be sure to let you know when that's official!

Thank you (and everyone!) for the translation help. That is an important piece of this puzzle as we work to get these voices out to a global audience.

Regards,

Scott Beck
