Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
I am a 45 year old. I have worked for twenty years as a secretary later administrative assistant/personal assistant. The last employment was a temporally employment with the Bank. I left this employment to deliver my last born daughter and never got an opening again since I don't have a degree.

I have tried seeking sponsors to get back to school and pursue a degree course with no avail.

I wish to join world pulse to voice the place of a woman in my neighborhood particularly house wives who have not support or income. I wish to get to hear from world pulse how we could begin to empower these women some of whom have suffered domestic violence with no one to listen to them. Some have been left by their husbands to take care of their families single handed with no income. Who could hear them? Some including me have the desire to further education and empower the community but where do we begin?

My Passions:
to have the voice of woman heard and empower woman in my community

My Challenges:
How do I go about it

My Vision for the Future:
To be able to represent woman and ensure no woman suffers violence without support. I great desire is to train women.

My Areas of Expertise:
Involved in various women groups trying to be empowered

Wecome to the community!

Dear Njeri,

Hello and welcome Njeri! It's nice to have you in the community here. It's sad to hear house wives are taken for granted and unappreciated all over the world. A lot of times, women give up everything to raise a family, and if they want to go back to work afterwards, they are unable to find jobs.

It sounds like you have the heart and drive to be a leader in your community. I am so glad you joined us!

Also, there are plenty of women here from Kenya in particular that you might be interested in connecting with, and they're listed here: http://worldpulse.com/user/directory?country=39

If you would like some additional tips on making the most of what our site has to offer I encourage you to look through our Getting Started Guide, available here: http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/about/guide

I encourage you to make a post in our Resource Exchange so that people know that you have a need! You can click here to do that: http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/exchange/submit
I look forward to connecting with you in the future.

Warm wishes,

Jennifer
