Introducing myself and my journal: Sisterhood Agenda Magazine

About Me:
I am a social entrepreneur who seeks to create sustainable, global, positive social change, particularly for women and girls of African descent. For over 15 years, I have run Sisterhood Agenda.

Sisterhood Agenda recognizes that the most effective programs often operate at the grassroots level. As a result, our social impact is expanded through partnerships with agencies, individuals and businesses throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, the Caribbean, United Kingdom, and Africa. Global Partners create an extensive network to empower girls and women of African descent to become powerful voices for positive change around the globe. Global Partners utilize Sisterhood Agenda educational materials, implement Sisterhood Agenda programs, and are reviewed for best practices that are then shared with the public.

My Passions:
Putting Sisterhood on the Agenda and positive media are my passions.

My Challenges:
Funding my vision!

My Vision for the Future:
A sisterhood that is all-inclusive, participatory, transformational and accessible. One that includes socially conscious, global, multi-media resource-sharing, programmatic tools, and education.

My Areas of Expertise:
Social entrepreneurship, culturally relevent, gender-specific prevention and intervention strategies, race and gender identity, youth development

Welcome

Sister Angela,
What a joy it is to meet you and to learn of the wonderful work you are doing. Global partners reflects perfectly the vision of World Pulse of empowering women and young girls by giving their voice a platform upon which to ring out. I have no doubt that you will find this a positive experience and invite the women you work with to also join PulseWire where they will find women who have dared to speak out and are making connections crossing oceans, continents, and cultural barriers to change the way we live.

You might also like to browse through our group directory (http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/groups) where you may find a group with similar interests to your own. Or, you may consider starting your own group where you can build a powerful network bringing together PulseWire members with similar visions who want to share ideas or actions.

Take a moment to look at two amazing groups which I think you might be interested in joining. Leah's wonderful group, "Jambo, Hello from Kenya!" has brought together women from all over who brainstorm solutions, pose questions, test ideas and support each other's visions. It can be found at http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/groups/1474.

The other group is the Rafiki Club, managed by mamaAfrica, which matches women from all around the world in a penpal program to promote literacy in rural Kenya. It can be found at http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/groups/6627. Please do not hesitate to reach out to these amazing soul-sisters whose lights shine so brightly on PulseWire.

All the best with all your efforts and we look forward to hearing from you again soon.
Janice
PulseWire Community Director

In the Spirit of Sisterhood,

You are an angel

Hello Sister Angela,

I take this opportunity to personally welcome you to the Rafiki Club, I can see that Janice has refered you to the club and we are honoured to have you as an active member. kindly send us your Postal Address so that we can find you A rafiki in kenya who you will correspond with.

Project Africa is a non profit organization taht I founded with an aim to promote gender equality ,equity and empowerment of women and girls in Rural Africa. Today, we have established two schools in Kenya where women are taught basic literacy and vocational skills while also given opportunity to generate income through the participating in cottage industries. Our approach is learning by doing and earning. Our website is www.projectforafrica.org

the girls on the other hand are encouraged to pursue education and careers that have since time immemorial been male dominated. just this week we were able to rescue Naomi from being sold out as a househelp and gave her a chance to go to secondary school. You can read naomi's story on http://www.worldpulse.com/node/8085. together with education we offer mentorship to the girls and our Sistar Camp for girls aged 12-20 will be glad to host you nad your team sometime so that we can share in that which makes women of colour bold, strong and smart.

I started rafiki Club because Project Africa's Rafiki Program aimed to find friends for women in our network who can exchange letters withnthe women attending our adult education programs. we realise that most adult education books are so bulky for rural women since they have too much information that rural women somehow see no value of or are disnterested. We thought letter writing would serve as a teaching aid and thus Rafiki Program.

Through worldpulse.com we have now matched members of the Rafik cLub with Women in Project Africa's Network and for the last three weeks the women in Kenyya have been writing letters hoping we shall get some responces on our journal soon. In the first day of Letter writing in Lungalunga Kenya, mama Anna Muthui wrote for the first time.

When you write a letter to a woman in Kenya you give her a chance to read. And when she replies to your Letter it is an opportunity for her to write. With time she will learn to read and write and you will see the improvements she makes every other time you receive her letter. The rafiki club therefore gives everyone an opportunity to contribute to the education and wellbeing of women in rural Africa.

Karibu sana ( swahili words meaning Welcome very much)

Sole Sistas

Hi, I joined Sole Sistas this morning-what a blessing! I was experiencing technical difficulties before and it must have been on my end. The Magazine is well and I look forward to putting your links on our site. This may take some time, as we are creating a new system and design for our website and web pages.

Happy to link up with you...

In the Spirit of Sisterhood,
Angela

Angela, you are wonderful girl! Guess what you are our newest baby girl! God is wonderful for giving the group search a resourceful person. I believe the group will go places, touching the lives of those who need our help. Before the cloud of dust settles and our excitiment slow down, i believe we will be strategizing on how best we can make our Sole Sista a more lively group. A group for sharing ideas on how best we can lift the lives of less fortunate women/girls in our society.

I knew that I joined a group

I knew that I joined a group before and the process was pretty simple. I am pretty sure that the problem was with my browser and search functions. Yesterday, I had to uninstall a lot of programs, upload files to our ftp site, save files to CD and completely clean my computer. Now, it's working great! Thank you for your concern and your quick response. I look forward to participating in more groups.

In the Spirit of Sisterhood,
Angela
