Need: A STEP TOWARDS MAKING MY VOICE HEARD

ello mothers, sisters, aunts and all the girls. Actually, World Pulse has always helped us to explore ourselves and fight for ourselves.
As the motto says: NO one speaks for me. I speak for myself. I really need your help. Actually, I have been selected to participate 3rd South Asian youth conference going to be held in Nepal, this Dec 5-10.

I am among 70 selected ones from the South Asia. I feel somewhat proud and somewhat so handicapped.
Though I have been selected for the conference. The organizers have said that I need to manage my travel cost myself while the rest will be managed by them.

I have been trying to get the funds but it seems no one can help me. The cost may be around $200 but still no one wants to help me. The main reason is being a Girl. It's so ridiculous. I was selected last year as well but cudn't accommodate funds to go Pakistan. This time it is being organized in my own country. So the cost is limted to the registration charge and small travel fees.
This opportunity doesn't exposes only myself to my neighbouring countries but makes me closer to ponder upon the plight of the girls in those regions. Pakistan, Afganistan, india where girls are under so strict rules and regulations will provide me to know them.
I just hope that World Pulse being a true woman based organization can help me to grab this opportunity.

Looking forward for the positive response.
