Dear PulseWire – Rwanda community member:
In February, 2011, World Pulse media will host a week-long visit to Rwanda by American feminist leaders in friendship to meet women’s rights leaders, visit innovative projects, and discuss national progress for women in Rwanda.
World Pulse is honored to be working with EOS tours, Half Sky Journeys and our co-host organization, the Women's Equity in Access to Care and Treatment (WE-ACTx) on this exciting program. Our “Heart of East Africa” Rwanda tour takes place Feb. 7- Feb. 12, 2011.
A highlight is a our Feb. 10th morning women's forum -- “Rwanda Women's Speak Out” – co-hosted by WE-ACTx. This special forum brings together Rwandan officials, women parliamentary leaders, gender advocates, and professionals with tour delegates to share news, views, and experiences. A distinguished panel of speakers will discuss recent legal reforms and highlight innovative field programs, followed by a group discussion of Rwanda's achievements.
