Benefits of internet

In the name of Binwa Rehema, a mother of eight children, I would like to thank Mama Shujaa. Through them, I have learned how to write a journal myself. I have learned so many things that I didn’t know before. I can use a computer and internet. Using the internet has been great. I would never have dreamed of getting anywhere near a computer. Through Mama Shujaa, I got lucky and I am learning for free. It is luck because finding money to cover the education of my children and my own education wasn’t an option. My children come first, there is nothing I can do about that.
I would like to ask other mothers to act hand in hand and join Mama Shujaa because through the internet, you get known and get to know other mothers from far away countries. Mothers, let not give up on our selves, the world today is different from what it used to be and everyone must work harder.
I would like to thank everyone who will read my journal.

Internet

Binwa Rehema,

Nafurahi kujifunza kwamba walikuwa mafunzo ya kutumia internet ambayo ni chombo muhimu katika karne hii ya 21. Internet ni mlango wazi na kila aina ya habari, mafunzo na inaruhusu kupata vikao virtual majadiliano kama vile inayotolewa na worldpulse. Tuna hakika kuhamasisha wanawake wengine kupata mafunzo sawa na wewe kupokelewa.

I am glad to learn that you were trained to use the internet which is a useful tool in this 21st century. Internet is the open door to all kind of information, trainings and allows access to virtual discussion forums such as those offered by worldpulse. We trust you to encourage other women to get the same training you received.

Binwa Rehema,
Did I understood it right if I read it as, Recibí el favor de la lectura?
I find it's a lovely way to concentrate feelings in one phrase.
Thank you

Your article

Dear Binwa, thank you very much for submitting your article about how you are using the Internet. I'm sure it will be a useful tool for you and all the women in your area. I can't read swahli, so I don't understand your message as well as I would like to. Keep writing and posting.

your article

Binwa

I am so sorry, but I can not understand your language. But, I feel and know that light is coming from your words. I know that the ability to communicate via email, via the internet, via blogs, and message boards such as this must be empowering for you and the women in your community! May light shine upon you in your journey to connect with other women.

Blessings,
Georgette

Thank you!

Thank you for writing down your words and thoughts and encouraging other people and women to do the same. Just taking the time to write down what you think and in many ways what you are, this is putting yourself in a position to be remembered and to make a difference. History only exists for us in this time because someone chose to write it down. We must continue with this effort and make our own history and change our world. Great job! keep writing!!
