We Need Your Help to Recruit More French Speaking Volunteers!

Delphine, Watering her garden (auto-portrait)

Bonjour a Tous,

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
I spend a lot of time gardening this weekend and relaxing! I also went to see the movie The Wolverine. My husband is a fan of Marvel movies and comic books!

Today, we posted 3 new volunteer descriptions on our Opportunities page. All of them are for French Speaking Volunteers.

As you might know or might have noticed, 5 to 7 new French speakers join our Online Community everyday. Most of them are from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and they do not speak English. We are recruiting volunteers like you to help us support these new members and ensure they feel welcome and nurtured on World Pulse.

I would highly appreciate if you could help us recruit new French Speaking Volunteers by sharing these job descriptions with your networks on Facebook, Tweeter, Blogs, or word of mouth!

We are looking for:

French-to-English Translators: http://worldpulse.com/node/42202

French Speaking Online Community Volunteers: http://worldpulse.com/node/75411

French Speaking Welcome Committee Volunteers: http://worldpulse.com/node/75412

Merci beaucoup pour votre aide precieuse.

Hi Delphine I think its

Hi Delphine

I think its important to recruit more french Speaking online community volunteers but it is also very important to have more french speakers joining the platform beyond RDC to keep the french community active and popular.
For ex in west Africa we have a lot of french associations and ngo working to promote women's rights and more of them dont have website or blog.
I think ,we should see how to convince them to join the community and share their stories information with women from RDC who has already joined the community.

What do you think about that.

Wonderful Idea!

Hi Aissatou,

What an amazing idea. World Pulse is always interested in reaching out to people from french speaking countries. I am the only french speaker in the team, so it can be challenging for me to welcome and comment on all the posts french speakers create. We have noticed that people stay involved with World Pulse when they feel welcomed and their voice is heard. Recruiting more french speaking volunteers, will also help with new french speaking members, from the DRC and elsewhere.
Please reach out to your friends and family in Senegal and invite them to join us. We do have a getting started guide in french that can help them understand how to use our website: https://docs.google.com/a/worldpulse.com/file/d/0B6d68_-1P9WZc3VQdHo0RXJ...

I am happy to support you in efforts to recruit more french speakers. Let me know what I can help with.
Cheers,

Let's start by awid

Delphine
Peut etre que ce qui serait interessant est de commencer a poster notre annonce sur le newsletter de Awid qui apparait tous les mardis en francais et mercredi en Englais. http://www.awid.org/.et ensuite le poster sur le site du genre en action http://www.genreenaction.net/.Les deux plus grandes plateformes d'organisation et d'association feminines francophones.
Je pense qu;il serait plus pertinent que tu le postes en tant que staff de World Pulse.
Si tu veux ,je peux t'appuyer sur les messages ,textes etc.
Merci

Tres Bonne idee

Merci Aissatou pour tes suggestions.
C'es une tres bonne idee que je poste la newsletter de AWID en Francais une fois par semaine.
Je ne connaisais pas Genre en Action. C'est un site tres interessant. Je vais voir ce que je peux poster aussi.
Ce serai bien quand je poste que tu repond et partage avec d'autres.
Merci pour tes idees.
A bientot!
