Amazing Web 2.0

The most exciting part of Web 2.0 is the easy access to people around the world at the minimum cost, and to attain much information within a short time. With these tools, solving women’s problems becomes far easy. Web 2.0 allowed me to create a shelter program for battered women and children in Nigeria on my own in Japan. I downloaded photos and stories from the Internet. From these, I created newsletters, web site and brochures, and increased membership via email and Facebook. It is empowering to get to know writers and activists with similar focus around the world who can also work with me.

Hideko, Thank you for telling

Hideko,

Thank you for telling your story of how you have used Web 2.0 to make the world a better place. I would love to hear more about what you plan on doing next. Do you want to expand on the work you've done? Do you have another focus you want to work on? Do you want to connect with other women activists around the world and help them with their projects? The great thing about citizen journalism is that it lets you tell your story so that you can get other people mobilized to join your cause. Next time, I'd love to hear more details about your story and how you plan on using the Web 2.0 tools to achieve your goals.

Best,
Emma

Great deal

Dear Emma
I could not have done anything to run my NGO without Web 2.0 I dont take it for granted. In fact I may help other women to learn about Web 2.0. Right now I need to learn more about it. Thank you for your comment.

I am amazed how you were able to go through your ordeal in Nigeria. Your bravery is inspiring and your initiative to help other women using Web 2.0 is admirable.

May your tribe increase.

If you are interested in seeing how I used web 2.0, here is the link. My revision to the week one assignment for misunderstanding the question (done with 500 letters instead of 500 words!). http://worldpulse.com/node/68884

God bless.

Hi Hideko, Thank you for

Hi Hideko,

Thank you for your post. It seems that you have been able to accomplish a lot already with Web 2.0. I would love to hear more about how you were able to set up a shelter program in Nigeria from Japan. I think this would be very inspiring for other women looking for ways to affect change in places far away from where they are.

Best,
Amanda
