Dear Nashimwe, I am able to

Dear Nashimwe, I am able to understand only a bit of what you have written, as I speak only English. I think I understand the main points of what you are saying. We are all so thankful for the doors that have opened to us with access to the internet. I am so grateful to WorldPulse for expanding the boundaries of my "family."

Technology for women

Hello Nashimwe,

I am delighted to hear how women could and are actually breaking out into the dark through the internet to report on what is happening. From your text above I realize that you said women are closer to what is happening in society than the men. I would be interested in knowing what phenomenal you are taking about here when you say that, are we saying that women are closer to happenings because they are/ have been the home keepers for many years now and that this means they are also the society keepers?

I agree with you when you say that information is transmitted very fast via the telephone unlike before where people (women) had to physically deliver information. Do the women around your community access the internet via the mobile phones, it would be interesting to find out.

Finally, I hope that I got your message right since I do not speak French. Keep up the work you are doing.

Technology for Women

I used google translate and this is what I read:

Technology played a major fundamental role in relation to the emancipation of women. The technology allows the woman to go out in the dark. Thanks to the technology here's many benefits that help women out in the dark:
1 Local phone: avoiding to move miles to transmit a message, the information is transmitted quickly over the phone.
2 computer can write quickly and save time.
3 the internet is a great encyclopedia that has information on all kinds of sujets.l internet allows us to easily match with the gents who are very far as what are next.
Many women in the world uses the new technology because through technology the woman may wear change contributed to a better quality of life and make some more effective spots and very quickly.

Thank you for sharing your comments with us. I agree with you, technology has helped women move forward, and come up in society. The internet is also a good tool to help educate women and rise up in this world. How has technology helped with creating their own businesses?

Kind Regards,

Agreed

I think technology is such a blessing in our day and age. I agree that it can help people connect over many miles as well as allow people to gain information that would otherwise not be available to them.

Thank you so much for your comments and your voice. It is important for women, especially those are are subjugated, to have a portal in which they feel that can be heard; I believe technology is one of the portals.

Again thank you!

Je pense que la technologie est une telle bénédiction dans notre époque. Je suis d'accord qu'il peut aider les gens à se connecter sur plusieurs miles, ainsi que permettre aux gens d'obtenir des informations qui autrement ne seraient pas disponibles.

Merci beaucoup pour vos commentaires et votre voix. Il est important pour les femmes, en particulier ceux qui sont soumis sont, d'avoir un portail dans lequel ils estiment que l'on peut entendre, je crois que la technologie est l'un des portails.

Encore merci!

Nashimwe greetings,

I agree with you when you say that technology is important to you, as it is to other women in society. If I translated this well you mean that due to computers (technology) during a voter registration exercise you were selected to take part in it yet there were many other men? I would love to hear more of this, how did the process come about? Were there other women involved in the process? And the men participants were they well versed with technology?

Thank you for letting us know of how you are using technology in the community and how it has been beneficial to you.
