Easy equation to solve the problem

I always dream about living in a better world, with peace, love, justice and dignity. I try to help others as much as I can, but I always believe that it is better to help people find their ways to solve their problem themselves. Helping others is not limited to give them some money or let them use your old staff, but rather letting them know, know how to know themselves, how to discover themselves and the world around; because as much as they know, as much as they can defeat the fear to face any obstacle. That is why your site motivates me to participate. I was surfing the web and came across to your website, by chance.
Women are the basic part of the world. They are the half of our community and they raise the other half, so they are the entire world, indeed. Without helping women get their full rights and obtain their dignity and honor, we all lose. ‘‘Ahmed Shawqi, The poet, said: Mother is school and if you prepared her well, you will prepare people of good races.’’ Hopefully, by collaboration, we can speak out to call for their rights, give them the chance to express themselves, their problems, needs and desires. Our effort may make them stand up and take the incentive to proceed their way as there is chance to be heard and valued.
Before little years from now I was dreaming about finding a good job where I can put my full effort to be the best to prove to myself and all the people around that I can hold the responsibility and excel. When I got to college there was a good job opportunity for me. It was a little hard to work and study at the same time but I considered it as a challenge. I graduated successfully and was one of the best employees. I'm sure there are many women who have wonderful stories about striving in life to be better and to prove their abilities to make miracles; their stories, really, worth spreading. By publishing, listening, or broadcasting these stories we show the world the real abilities of women, how much they can do and bear. World has to know the real value of women in our life, we all have to admit that we can't solve our problem without helping women take their full rights and empowering them.

Thank you for your piece Mai.

I loved the line, "Without helping women get their full rights and obtain their dignity and honor, we all lose." I couldn't agree more. My belief in this statement is what inspired me to join this community of women helping women, as I'm sure it did for you. By sharing your stories, you are informing the world of the value women have. Keep it up!

Best,

"we all have to admit that we can't solve our problem without helping women take their full rights and empowering them."

The Chinese proverb says "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime". I am grateful to World Purse for helping people like you publish and broadcast their stories. There is no doubt that more women will benefit from this initiative. Keep up the good work!!!
