TEMOIGNAGE WOLD PULSE

Avant World Pulse, je ne pouvais rien en la manipulation d’outil informatique. A l’école les peu des machines ne pouvaient pas servir convenablement les élèves plus nombreux par rapport aux machines. Et puis, nous n’avions pas les moyens d’aller sur internet faute d’argents mais avec Mama Neema Namadamu, le comité directeur de World Pulse, et Mama Shujaa , nous sommes maintenant connectés et nos voix sont entendues ailleurs et avec espoir, nous savons que les autres qui nous lisent sont maintenant nos interprètes et un jour la victoire viendra. Avec World Pulse, nous savons faire face à nos problèmes et à se positionner, et pensons à réfléchir sur les solutions éventuelles et connaissons les réalités d’autres pays. Nous avons amélioré la connaissance dans la manipulation de l’outil informatique malgré des lacunes qui nécessitent les formations approfondies auxquelles nous sollicitons les personnes de bonnes volontés pour notre renforcement de capacité. Nous sommes maintenant connectés au monde extérieur et avons déjà beaucoup de correspondants et d’amis. Cela nous console, de savoir que nous ne sommes pas seuls dans les défis que nous avons à relever avec les violences, les guerres à répétition et les groupes armés qui se forment du jour au lendemain. Merci à World Pulse et à tous ceux là qui ont permis cette connexion que nous souhaitons tant revenir avec assez des machines pour tous. Que Dieu vous bénisse.

Before World Pulse, I could do nothing in the use of computers. At school there were not enough machines for the number of students who needed to use them. We could not even go on the Internet because it cost money, and we could not afford it. But with Mama Neema Namadamu, the community director of World Pulse, and Mama Shuiaa, we are now connected and our voices are heard elsewhere, and with hope, we know that others who read our stories are now our interpreters and one day, victory will come. With World Pulse, we know how to come face to face with our problems and to position ourselves, to think and reflect on solutions and recognize the realities of other countries. We have improved in the use of computers despite our shortcomings, which required an extensive training in which we solicited good-willed people to help strengthen our ability. We are now connected to the outside world and have already had a lot of correspondence with friends. This comforts us, to know that we are not alone in these challenges that we have to raise with the violence, repeating wars and armed groups that seem to form overnight. Thank you to World Pulse and to those who have created this connection that we hope so much to come back with enough computers for all. May God bless you all.
