I am so happy you have joined us.

Your voice is vital to raising awareness of what is happening in South Sudan. I encourage to apply for the World Pulse VOF Program. It will connect you with other women around the world demanding women and girls have the same rights as men. It becomes an amazing support network of sisters, mentors and supporters.

I have seen first-hand how much each person's writing skills develop, their confidence grows, how they garner support for their personal projects, and how many went on to have their articles picked up by international media such as the BBC, CNN, and the New York Times.

I hope you will consider applying. The world needs to hear your voice.

In peace and with best wishes,
Janice

Thanks for encouraagement

Thanks for great encouragement,i desreve to be part of this program because the new nation is facing alot and i want to be part of nation building,onething funny about men in this society,when you are working,they will always be looking at such woman negatively and i was ask queit many times whether do i perform domestic work as a woman, which mean i should be in the kitchen always not doing other duties but i even manage it becuase if i i focus on what people say negatively about me,then no progress in my life.

Thanks Veronica.
