English translation by PulseWire member MsCadet

In Bukavu, many people are illiterate, predominantly women. The internet is mostly inaccessible to all. Just a few of women are literate and are maybe leaders of several women’s groups. With the aid of WorldPulse, many women can access the internet as they are guided, aided, and supported. They benefit at the same time by a small training that is of crucial importance for them. Thanks to this, they can express their sentiments, wishes, and even expose their problems and worries.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Ending Violence Against Women Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring an end to gender-based violence. The EVAW Campaign elicits powerful content from women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as vocal grassroots leaders, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

Réponse

Bonjour MsCadet
Comme je l'ai écris,la plus part de femmes n'ont pas vraiment un grand niveau d'étude.Un nombre considérable de personnes viennent de loin pour venir exprimer leurs sentiments.Certaines sont veuves ou de femmes abandonnées et délaissées par leurs maris et surtout leurs belles familles.Avec le peu de connaissance qu'elles ont en écriture,on leur apprend à manipuler l'ordinateur et surtout de naviguer sur internet.Deux femmes se chargent de la suivie et de la formation:Annuarite et Emily.S'il y a une femme qui ne sais pas écrire,on lui apprend à écrire et si c'est difficile pour elle d'assimiler ce qu'on lui apprend,dans le but de gagner le temps on lui demande d'exprimer ses idées ,puis on l'aide à les structurer ainsi que de le mettre sur papier et enfin elle saisit le texte d'elle même et elle poste.Pour celles qui ne savent rien,on leur apprend l'alphabet ainsi que le clavier et comme cela elle font tout d'elles même.S'il y a une chose qu'elles veulent demander,les guides sont là pour les aider.Elles remercient beaucoup Neema qui a pris l'initiative de faire parler les femmes à travers world pulse et si ce programme se termine elles regretterons beaucoup,car celles qui ne savaient rien de l'informatique ont appris le minimum de ce qu'elles pouvaient faire de temps à autres.A présent,elles savent manipuler l'ordinateur qu'elles n'avaient jamais touchées au par avant et exprimer leurs idées contribuent à leurs épanouissement.
Merci pour tout!

Thank you, Nicole

Dear Nicole,

Thank you for your clear words about how World Pulse can provide support to women who might otherwise not benefit from what Internet access can provide.

Indeed, all women need skills with which they can eventually become independent and empowered.

Your voice is important, so please continue to share information about your countrywomen.

With Respect,

Interfaith Reverend Sarah

Thank you

Nicole, thank you very much for telling us how World Pulse is helping women in Bukavu find their voice and use it. Learning to read and write, to use a computer and the internet are great skills that will empower the women, give them a voice and access to information.

I hope you will share more about these activities with us in the future. I'm looking forward to learning more from you!
