Hi Masoka I enjoyed reading

Hi Masoka

I enjoyed reading your story.

I have read about the Mama Shujaa centre and the important work it is doing to teach women how to use the internet to tell their stories to the rest of the world, and to get new knowledge and ideas. I hope that other groups will be able to learn from what you are doing.

I know that Congo can be a difficult place for women, and it is great that you now have more opportunities to speak for yourselves and join the campaign for peace and human rights in your country.

Best wishes

Using the Internet

Dear Masoka,

Thanks for sharing your experience with the Mama Shujaa Center. it seems like that will become a wonderful meeting place for you and many of your neighbors. Learning how to use the computer and the Internet will take a little time to learn but you can do it--you are a woman and can do ANYTHING, right? Keep us informed and please know that you are not alone. I'm praying for all ladies in the DRC every morning

I am so happy to know that you are able to keep informed thanks to Le centre mama shujaa.

It sounds really interesting and I am sure that you are taking advantage of it.
