Welcome. Bienvenue.

It is a joy to welcome you to our community. We only have a handful of members from your region in Western Africa and so, are interested in hearing more from your beautiful country. I hope you will encourage your friends to join PulseWire so that we may learn more about the issues that women face in Cameroon. Here, you will find women who have dared to speak out and are making connections crossing oceans, continents, and cultural barriers to change the way we live. Stories are being told, movements are being started and laws are being reformed as lives are transformed. You are now a member of this vibrant community and I look forward to reading more about your passions, ideas, concerns and dreams. I know that you will find this to be a positive experience.

Also, please take a moment to browse through our group directory ( where you may find a group with similar interests to your own. Or, you may wish to consider starting your own group where you can build a powerful network bringing together PulseWire members with similar visions who want to share ideas or actions. With the group journal, you can brainstorm solutions, pose questions, test ideas and create a support network for your visions.

It is voices such as your own that have transformed lives and I look forward to reading more from you. Here, your words ring out, bring ideas to life and can empower others who have been hesitant to speak. Again, welcome and thank you for joining PulseWire.

Hi Janice and Jade,
I' m impressed seeing women come together for the common good of humanity. If we can live in a world free from violence,discrimination and marginalization, there will be sustainable development. Not only women will benefit from this but humanity as a whole. I' m sorry, I have been missing for quite some time. I was in a rural area of Cameroon where there is still no access to electricity not to talk of internet provider. Can see the correspondents have been selected. Congrats to all the winners. I will use this opportunity to also plead for used computers for our organization, The Mohfesama Foundation for Women (MFW). One of our program areas is information and communication technology for rural women. Majority of rural women do not have access to computers. The case of Baba 1 village in Cameroon is alarming, as many of the women do not know a computer and have never seen one. We are trying to expand possibilities by providing computers at our IT centre in Baba 1. We are the only independent,humanitarian and non-profit making organization based in Baba 1, Cameroon. If interested, please do not hesitate to contact us if you need further information or where the need arises. We also need volunteers!

Peace to you all
