Mes sinceres remerciements à WORLD PULSE

Je suis très joyeuse de me retrouver parmi les membres de world pulse,une maison qui est pour nous une occasion de se connaitre et d'échange entre les femmes de différents continents du monde;je remercie sincèrement la maison de cet acte inoubliable dans ma vie,intégration dans la communauté.Mes remerciements s'adressent aussi à mes trois soeurs qui ont déjà fait des commentaires à mon sujet: notamment Susan KA, Neena notre responsable en RD CONGO et enfin à mme Fatima W. En effet pour répondre à la question qui m'a été posée je tiens à signaler nos collegues que les femmes du massifs forestiers d'Itombwe sont en difficultés de tout genres suite à l'enclavement du milieu.
Pour se faire nous avons commencé par l'alphabéthisation des adultes,cultures marraichère, petite élevage,micro crédit.
En outre notre rayon d'action ou nous oeuvrons dans le cadre de GAMADI asbl est éloigné de la ville ou est notre centre de world pulse;Nous faisons trois jours de marche à pieds pour arriver dans un endroit ou on peut trouver les véhicules pour aller en ville, sot plus de cent km à pieds,Cette distance ne permet pas aux femmes de notre association de se présenter régulièrement dans le centre ville oû elles peuvent se connecter facilement.Les gens qui ne savent pas lire et écrire sont très nombreux dans notre rayon d'action et surtout les femmes des pygmées.
Nous avons eu l'information sur world pulse au mois d'avril 2013 à travers notre conseiller Mr.Félix M.
Claudine Bilemo.

My Deepest Thanks to World Pulse

I am very happy to call myself a member of World Pulse, a home that for us means a chance to meet and exchange stories with women from different continents around the world. My sincere thanks go out to them for this unforgettable experience in my life, this integration in the community. I would also like to thank my three sisters who have already commented about me: especially Susan KA, Neena, our head here in DR Congo, and finally, Mrs. Fatima W. To answer the question that I was previously asked, I would like to point out to our colleagues that the women living in the Itombwe Mountains experience all kinds of difficulties caused by the limited access of the area.

To change this, we have started by teaching adults to read, cultivating vegetables, small-scale herding, and using microcredit.

Additionally, the centre where we work as part of GAMADI [...] is far from the town where our World Pulse centre is located: We walk for three days to reach a place where we can find vehicles that will take us into town; in other words, a walk of more than 100 km. This distance doesn't allow women from our association to go down-town regularly, where they can easily connect to the internet. In our area, there are many people who do not know how to read and write, especially Pygmy wives.

We received the information about World Pulse in April 2013 through our advisor, Mr. Felix M.

Claudine Bilemo.

Chère Claudine, Merci pour

Chère Claudine,
Merci pour partager votre histoire avec l’équipe de World Pulse. Moi aussi, je trouve que World Pulse représente une maison pour échanger d’histoires et connaitre des diverses femmes autour du monde. Je viens récemment de joindre cette équipe, mais je suis déjà inspirée par les femmes comme vous qui font preuve d’une détermination incroyable: prêtes à faire une vraie odyssée pour vous faire entendre.

Continuez votre bon travail!
Pilar
