About Me: Rose a woman with passion for community work and specifically grassroot women and girls,born and brought up in a rural set up,and experienced all the challenges of what grassroot women and girls go through, I watched my mother and other women being harassed, neglected despised and beaten.I walked with mother 5 KM with a pot of water on my head, 25 years ago,and a i made a promise that when i grow up i want to do something for the grassroot women and girls to bring back their rejuvenation and hope,i want to bring back their faded smiles.. i want grassroot women to stand up in their respective communities as leaders, community mobilizers,managers and implementers of community initiatives.under the woman -girl mentor-ship program,young girls in schools and colleges are progressively introduced into leadership.Women in Water and Natural Resources Conservation in Partnership with Global Women Water Initiative, we have trained grassroot women in Kenya,Uganda,and Tanzania as WASH champions,for the purposes of sustainability we have trained 50 women as masons. The women can now access contracts to construct,rain water harvesting tanks,VIP LATRINES and Biosand filters hence quality water and sanitation services. The girls can also access re-usable sanitary towels which are affordable,hence better academic performance.Join me as we stand out as the VOICE of the VOICELESS women in the world.

My Passions: Reaching out to the unreachable grass-rootwoman and girl child

My Challenges: Lack of resources to reach out to more grassroot women and girls

My Vision for the Future: Coming up with a training center for grassroot women and girls for social-economic transformation through practical training

My Areas of Expertise: WASH,Enterprenureship,Community development initiatives and women issues

You are awe-inspiring for actually doing things for women and children. I feel good about doers not just talkers. I can say we are almost there but took me two years to cultivate the ground. Difficulty is that I live in distant country and that fund is not easily available. Though I think it is almost there and I would love to share the progress we are making with you. You can see how we are doing on our website: http://www.swacin.com

Welcome to World Pulse, Rose. The work you are doing is so great and greatly needed. Two of our World Pulse sisters who are actively involved with menstrual hygiene issues are Ch Urmila as a teacher of hygiene and Olutosin Oladosu who teaches women to sew reusable pads. You can find both of them in their World Pulse journals and on facebook.

Your visions are one step closer to achievement when you network in such a strong group of empowered people. You are only one person, but you are smart enough to know that our power is exponential when combined with other powerful people.

You are now a part of a thriving grassroots network of women leaders and supporters from more than 190 countries. See the Getting Started Guide to learn more about networking in our community: http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/about/guide

I look forward to hearing more of your voice in WorldPulse.

Continue to be a blessing. Yvette
