Quel travail impressionnant!

Quel travail impressionnant! je voit que la formation des femmes et surtout des jeunes filles bas son plein au Sierra Leone. vous avez choisit une très bonne voix, celle d'aider les jeunes filles et les femmes de participer à la norme morale de l'éducation , le developpement social, moyen de tolérence en droit d'expression, et impliqués dans la construiction de la nation dans des programmes de developpement communautaire et de la durabilité de l'environnement.
je suis tellement touchée par la formation sur l'éducation des jeunes filles. c'est bien et c'est à encourager. car, bon nombre des filles n'ont pas accès à l'éducation. comme au Sierra Leone, au Congo, ce genre de problème fait encore le degat. or, il est temps de briser la corde de la discrimination.

luttons ensemble pour combattre ce fléau.

Very important work!

Dear Paul,
The Community Network Movement for Marginalized Women in Sierra Leone is doing very important work. Like the other respondents, I applaud the initiatives and aims of your organization. The education you seek to provide to women and girls is comprehensive and very much needed. Peace, reconciliation, sustainability, environmental health, cultural diversity, access to technology. All are critically important issues.

Blessings to you all,
Kit
