CONNECTING WOMEN AND THE WORLD

It’s a journey that lasts millions of miles and hundreds of years until the end of time because no matter where one stops, another person will take the lead and continue. I can say it’s an unending journey though I have stop at World Pulse for now for a rest so as to add to my (and that of others) basket of knowledge and experience some wonderful life changing things from World Pulse to carry along the journey. In 2006, my dream of reaching out to other communities was trickle up after I attended a seminar on Management of NGOs. In the seminar I realized that women attendance was low and I ask this question “why were women not invited” I discovered that women lack access to information on issues that can help them. This drew my interest in trying to reach out to women through development projects as I will find out things and go to them.
My stop at WP was recent as I went online to search for women network organizations with an objective of meeting women, learning new ideas, sharing knowledge and experiences, discovering the world etc. When I saw the World pulse I decided to explore the site and be hold it was just the right place for me that is why I stopped. I registered and as I navigated the site I came across 2013 voices of Our Future something inside me told me to join and here I am today.
Lucy’s journey to World Pulse is one that I will never regret because all my life I have always dream of being a representative for women in my town. Amongst my peers I have been the spokes person. Joining World Pulse and the 2013 voices of Our Future, I believe I will gain more knowledge as I will acquire new skills and improve on the skills I already have. I will meet women who will guide me attain my goals for example my posting on “WOMEN AND THEIR FINANCES” I have already receive many strategies and suggestions from other women all over the world. Their contribution adds a step to my plans for the future that I must say LONG LIVE World Pulse. Long LIVE the VOICES OF WOMEN!

hi

women please let be awake and be strong to face the reality of life .seriously life is not easy but we have to be strong and face the problem of life .

LUCY NJANG FUL's picture

Hello

Dear Safiatou,
Surely we are already awake, we are now joining our hands, hearts, ideas, thoughts, love etc to make our voices heard everywhere on this planet. The solution to your problems begins with us in regards with our interaction and comportment in the public, so it starts with one's personal self before going public. That is part of the challenge we've got.

hello

dear LUCY thank you very much lucy you are right

Khaiwana's picture

I understand

Yes, it's a very sad reality that a lot of women lack the necessary information that they need to know in order to survive in this 21st century world. That's why in Jamaica we have the I'm Glad I'm A Girl Foundation, where we assist marginalized girls, by educating then etc. However, good piece of writing.

Hello

Khaiwan,
You are just correct, pls get to me on cvolunteerservices@yahoo.com for more talks.

True Lucy.

There is a similarity between you and me the way we stumbled across World Pulse. I also used to hear about Women Empowerment stories on the Media but found that there is a lot lacking in terms of Empowering Women.
That is why when you attended those workshop you found minimal representation of women, those who were said to be empowering other women were missing the point and men stepped in to fill the loopholes but did not implement.
I mean it takes a woman to understand another woman's needs. I so wish other women can pick up this baton and run with it. We need really powerful women out there who will leave an indelible mark out there.
I always felt and know that, had mt mother had the chance to be highly educated, she could have given some of those renowned political women a run for their money.

Get moving, don't stop! Use World Pulse to it's maximum.

Loretta.

Lucy, you seem to really have found your place in World Pulse to further your cause. YES, be that voice, be that spokesperson for all the women who need to be heard. You're right. It is an unending journey. When one goes, another takes over to keep the journey going. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and being the voice for those who have none.
