We achieved our dream this way....

Sarah, Julie K Thompson's Mentee.

World Pulse has been our strongest platform. For several reasons I am so thankful for this platform;
1. For uplifting my voice and staging me to international audience where I got to network with visionary women and men from across the globe.
2. For giving me FREE space to channel my voice and let the whole world hear.
3. For supporting my dream.
In November 2011, We officially started a Mentorship project - Rural Girl Child Mentorship Uganda (RGCM Uganda). A one on one girl-to-mentor global nonprofit Mentorship program which helps poor rural Ugandan girls attend school and work toward achieving their dreams. http://worldpulse.com/node/60952

Today we have 66 girls connected with Mentors from across the globe. These mentors educate them as well and currently all these 66 girls are attending boarding schools, a life the have never thought of.
These are rural girls who stood high chances of early marriages due to lack of funds for education and having no-one to nature their dreams. They walked longer distances to get to the cheapest village schools, some are total orphans, some live with HIV Positive parents, some are totally poor.

"It is a blessing to Mentor Sarah."says Julie K Thompson. Sarah's Mentor from the United States. They have exchanged letters, videos, photos and skype calls since January 2012 to-date.

We count it a great achievement, supported by this platform - World Pulse.
We extend our thanks to individual supporters of this project both through World Pulse and through Facebook. Thank you!

Many thanks.

Thank you

You are an outstanding woman, Jensine.
Who would have heard my voice without your platform and its opportunities?
I am very pleased with what I do. It makes me feel fulfilled.

I believe everybody has the potential to live a better life. Given the Opportunity, Education and Motivation ANYONE can become someone admirable. Nobody is a NOBODY, everybody is SOMEBODY.

Congratulations

Beatrice, how my heart soared when I read this post. I am so thrilled for you and congratulate you on all that you have achieved. World Pulse has been of support to you but you had the vision, the drive and the courage to make this dream a reality. I know that you will go on to positively transform the lives of many more young girls who will always remember their angel, Beatrice.

Thank you Janice

Like I remember my angel, Rebecca!
I am so confident that these girls will also help so many more, and the circle continues.
If we invest our potential where our hearts are, we are making a difference. I am so pleased my heart led me to support the rural, locked up and poorest girls on this planet. I count it a blessing seeing them in better, hopeful paths through Education and Mentorship..

I believe everybody has the potential to live a better life. Given the Opportunity, Education and Motivation ANYONE can become someone admirable. Nobody is a NOBODY, everybody is SOMEBODY.
