Welcome!

Wonderful to hear from you and to hear about your program! Education is so important and the work you are doing is powerful.

I want to point you to a group that a member, Leila, created for African orphans. She herself is a thirteen year old girl working to empower children orphaned by AIDS in Kenya. I think you two may have a lot to discuss!

Here is Leila's profile: http://beta.pulsewire.net/user/293

I encourage you to comment and introduce yourself so that you can begin to collaborate!

Here is the group that you can join: http://beta.pulsewire.net/groups/1956

This is a great space to discuss the unique needs of orphans and your experience working with this population. There are also many members who can likely help support your program and initiative!

Additionally, I am curious about what does your program needs to be successful? What kind of information and resources do you need support finding? This is a great topic for your next post!

All the best,
Corine

Greetings! I saw Cori's comments, so I just sent you an invitation to join World AIDS Orphans group. I do hope you will join us and help start a conversation!

Did you create the CAPEC Volunteers group? (http://beta.pulsewire.net/groups/2156)
I look forward to seeing what develops there.

All my best,
Jennifer
