Community Update

World Pulse Toolkits Available!

At World Pulse, we recognize the need for ongoing learning—for you and for your community! Our toolkits are all available here.

We are especially excited to share our signature Citizen Journalism and Digital Empowerment Curriculum. Start learning today!

Finally, I am a book club member!!

A chance to join a book club, well of course I have to join. I have been watching Oprah since 2004 (because my sister's husband was kind enough to buy us a TV set in 2003) and I was inspired by this amazing lady in so many ways. Whenever i hear the word 'book club', of course Oprah's Book Club comes to mind.
I was a member of Oprah Book Club for many years or at least convinced myself I was, and even though I couldn't purchase the books recommended, because there are no bookstores in my city, but that didn't stop me from trying to obtain the books recommended. I would send my relatives and friends abroad to send me the books. Later on, I had the privilege to read Tuesdays with Morrie, A million little Pieces, A tale of two cities, and Great Expectations because of Oprah's Book Club.
I am so excited to join this club and I am equally thrilled to read your recommendations and of course contribute and recommend my own selections.
I am VOF 2013 Applicant and I am extremely psyched to be a member of WP community.
And finally, I am a member of a book club!!!

Welcome Dega

Hello Dega,
We are happy that you've joined us here in the World Pulse Book Club. We are a small group, but avid readers who not only enjoy reading, but read to learn and better understand our world, it's diversity of people and places, conflict too, as well as paths to peace.

Our members tell us about books from around the world, fiction and non-fiction. Reading authors from countries other than our own broadens our understanding...and makes us closer as citizens of the world. So, Dega, can you recommend a book about Somali or your region?

Welcome to our group!
Bonnie

hello, Deqa!

yes, I had to laugh, becz now I am a member of a book club, too! There are many in my community, but the books often did not interest me & often the discussions as well (seemed trivial). I am thrilled to find this WP book club! What books are you wanting to read right now?? Tell us & I will look for them in the 2nd-hand book store. We're together here. What do your friends read?? BTW, best of luck w/ yr application to VOF. I'll be hoping for you. Peace be with you//Tina

Book club!!

My dear fellow book club members, I am completely humbled by your warm welcome. I was so caught up and invested in the VOF contest but surely I look forward to sharing my -to read- list. And i look forward to reading your suggestions starting with Tina's.

after VOF 2013 ends...

then, Deqa , we will have time to come up w/ some books to read. And you can tell us what you & your friends read over there -- I would be very interested to hear what has trickled into Somalia for young people like you. Perhaps I can find some books to send you!

Write when you have time -- I will be checking the WP site & my in-box maybe once a week after my stint as a volunteer Listener is done, on May 7. Good luck with your application to VOF. Until then...enjoy , Tina
