Each One Teach Five

I am pleased to report to the World Pulse community that our Each One Teach Five: From Digital Media to Social Change successfully went well. It was tremendously joyful to have worked with Rabia, one of our 2013 Voices of Our Future Correspondents, whose passion and enthusiasm is contagious and energy of her patience and kindness radiates out to all of us.

Rabia and I reached out dozens of students in Asian University for women; introduced them to World Pulse; taught them how to create World Pulse profile to be part of our community; showed them all resources at World Pulse home page so that they could use the best of them; trained them on citizen journalism in particularly about profile writing, front-line journal and multimedia story telling.

We started off this Each One Teach Five training or information sharing sessions in AUW by posting posters all around the campus to invite all the students to join us.

World Pulse community has been heavenly platform where all women across from the world are connected and it has been spiritually healing space too where we all have come together to believe in intrinsic values within ourselves. It has been revolutionary women’s world where each of us can find a significant role to play and to amplify voices of individuals to be powerfully transformative. Throughout our together-leadership-empowerment-journey, we gained much more than we could ever imagine; we learned citizen journalism and digital empowerment; we established beyond friendship-sisterhoods with courageous and inspirational women across from the world; we built greatest ever mentorship with most generous and kind-hearted mentors; and we formed a well-rounded community to which we will always come back and keep update our leadership journey.

We have learned and gained a great deal at World Pulse; therefore, we earnestly wanted our classmates and friends to be part of our community too; we wanted them to be able to have all wonderful learning and sharing experiences as well. Rabia and I sincerely and faithfully encouraged each one of participants to speak up and share stories of theirs because we wanted them to feel empowered and see all great possibilities as well. Even if we could not keep all the participants throughout all three sessions, most of participants reported that the sessions were very helpful and encouraging. Many of them have already created profile and started sharing their stories. It has been one of the most rewarding feeling when participants showed their interests, passion and excited to learn more about World Pulse.

your story

Hi Jampa,

What a wonderful and empowering message your bring! And what important work you are doing. It is so wonderful to hear and learn about the work that you are doing in bringing more women into the digital age. Your willingness and drive to help yourself and other women connect is truly inspiring. I feel that you are correct in saying that we can all amplify the voices of individuals, we can help women have a voice. Together we can become one big collective voice made up of wonderfully, unique voices each bringing something special to the world and each other!

May your successes continue, and may the voices of the women you inspire be empowered and strong!!!

Blessings to you all,
Georgette

You are on a great journey, Jampa!

How exciting to introduce other women to the power of connection through World Pulse! Congratulations, Jampa, you are doing really great work at your school. One of the greatest gifts we can give others is to empower them to share their own voice and to connect with others, and you are doing that. You have the ability to share the tools they will need, and that is very important.

I wish you and your fellow students all the best in your studies and your together-leadership-empowerment-journey! What a great journey to be on! I am looking forward to reading your journal posts.

Greetings from Portland, Oregon! :)

Great Initiative!

You have done well with your "Each One Teach Five" initiative. Encouraging those you teach to do the same to five others has certainly contributed to empowering more women faster. It has a multiplier effect. With this great deed, only great possibilities will come. Thank you for sharing.

Lylin

Inspiring!

Dear Jampa,

I remember the first time I taught women in my community about World Pulse and how excited they were to learn about this global platform. You have done such important work in reaching out to the women in your community, not only teaching them how to use all these technological and journalistic tools, but also helping them to connect to women around the world. You are so right that by connecting with each other, we all become inspired, courageous, and skilled at communicating with each other. Thank you for this lovely reminder of the value of helping women in one's own community!

I love "momentum building"

Dear Jennie,
Thank you so much for stopping by and giving me such a kind and lovely comment. Your support means a lot me. It was truly a very exciting experience to have worked with young women in my university and have them connected with other wonderful women around the globe. It is such a honor to start building bridge between World Pulse community and those girls and have them to be part of our World Pulse community. I told them that "everything you learn about World Pulse or get from World Pulse community would definitely surprise you."
Thank you Jennie,
All the best,

Powerful Simplicity

Dear Jampa,

What a simple, yet powerful idea you present: each individual reach out to 5 others to teach them this important tool. An achievable action that can change the world. I am very impressed and inspired. I find myself wondering what similar I could do in my community. And thank you for the picture and links to the beautiful posted stories.

I find myself wondering what is next for you - do you plan to be a teacher? a social worker? or are you not sure yet? Surely you will do something amazing, you already have. please continue to share your experiences.

With love,
Heidi

jampa's picture

Yes, social worker

Dear Heidi,
Thank you so much for leaving your thoughts here, it really means a lot to me.
I would always tell people this is the beauty of World Pulse community that you will always get great deal of support, love and caring, that's the most significant to do from us each individual to encourage other individuals to keep doing great things and give them mental support, love, encouragement it can truly allow a person see potentials within.
you said you are wondering if you could do similar work in your community, I certainly believe you can do it.

I find myself being a social worker, and I envisioning myself helping people in my community every possible ways and have their children educated. I will definitely share more and I will always come back to World Pulse to update my leadership journey.
Much Love,
Jampa

Helping Each Other

Dear Jampa,

I really appreciate you sharing your experience with us. It is amazing that you and other WP members are helping other women and girls to became a part of World Pulse. I think this is the best way of spreading our knowledge with each to other and giving others a platform to raise their voices around the world and share experiences.
I could not agree with you more, the platform World Pulse has been providing to many of us is making tremendous impact on our lives. This is a place where everyone (women, men, girls, young and not so old) can share their experiences and knowledge to help and empower others.
Please keep doing what you and Rabia are doing. This is the best way to empower and create a next generations of women pioneers and leaders!
