The struggle of women & young people to make life a reality
My name is Margot and I am a listener for the VOF project. I really enjoyed reading your post and I loved the detail your shared with us about your struggles with accessing the internet. I think that we really take the internet for granted in America where most people have personal computers an internet in their homes. Your post reminds me of how much of a privilege the internet is. How much does a USB modem cost where you are? Do you have a laptop to use it with?
Thanks for sharing and I wish you the best of luck. Keep in touch!
Thank you so much for taking your time to read my post. I am so happy that it reminded you how privileged you are.I don't have a laptop yet but i normally use my friend's desktop. A USB modem costs Kshs 7000 which is about US$ 100. Your comment means a lot to me and i will be very glad to read from you again.
Kind regards & God Bless,
I loved the quality of your writing. The way you say things has a beautiful melody and an honesty to it that makes me feel like I know you.
I love what you do to combat the difficulties of time/money for internet use. It is a very smart way to overcome the current problem and in the future I hope you have even more resources to do so because your writing is powerful and clear.
Thank you so much for the words of encouragement. Your comment really means a lot to me because that way i am able to know if i am on the right track or not. You have given me even more reasons to courageously face the challenges that may come my way.
I really appreciate.I also read your post and really just as Jackie said we deserve the best.
All the best and Thank you for encouragement.
