World Pulse is Heading to East Africa—And You’re Invited!

Join hands with the women of Kenya and Rwanda for an adventure of a lifetime!

There are a limited number spots available on the February 2011 World Pulse Journey: The Heartbeat of East Africa. This journey will take us through two countries on the brink of renewal and change—World Pulse style. Expect beauty, transformation, and soul-stirring connections with some of the most inspiring voices in the region. We will hear from political leaders and parliamentarians. We will visit sites of local change, with grassroots women leaders as our guides. We will meet activists who are grappling with the issues of HIV/AIDS, poverty, water access, and education. We will explore breathtaking nature reserves, admire local crafts, and celebrate our new friendships and world-changing alliances.

Dates of travel are January 31st - February 10th, 2011 — with an optional three-day extension in Rwanda. The group is limited to 15 guests and seats will fill quickly, so register today!

Hi,

Our program works in all slums in areas of HIV prevention-care and support with the ministry of health. An added program is now in Kibera, working with 50 schools and 16 community based organizations in interepersonal communication and mass media, in sexual and gender based violence.

So, I am interested to be part of the Kenya slum visit only.

Above all, welcome to Kenya and get ready to be revitalized by the people, sunrise and sunset.

If there are mailing lists for future or similar trips, I would be interested in being a part. I was not able to make these dates but, as a female ethnomusicologist, interested in womens' music and musical creativity in North and West Africa, I want to stay up to date with World Pulse projects as well. Thanks!

Waoo... World pulse is so real! Waa.. Such an inspiring team..I account myself lucky for being part of this amazing group. We had time to share with world pulse team some who I never thought I will ever meet in life.. Meeting Janice has added fire in my life! I can do it, I told myself. If such a young girl can do it, what about me ..I kept on challenging myself during the meeting. I thank the team that they have come at the beginning of the year when we are talking of the goals/actions of the year..I have already added this as my action this year, to talk to as many women about World Pulse through our Magazine THE WOMANS HOPE. (www.womanshope.org) Ladies we hold hands and shake mountains.

Love you World Pulse Team!

What a journey it has been for us all and I feel so blessed for having so many beautiful sisters in my global family. Jensine's vision has brought us so much joy, hope and empowerment, and I look forward to hearing more stories of successful connections and abundant growth. I send you all my love and can't wait to hear all about the WP gathering. Salamu za upendo, dada! Janice

I was reading about the MOREMI INITIATIVE FOR WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP IN AFRICA this morning, which brought to mind World Pulse trip to East Africa. I am clearly looking to read some accounts from the team that traveled on this platform.

My memories are vivid from my past travels in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Somalia, Ethiopia and Sudan. Being able to help people help themselves to achieve better lives clearly requires exceptional young leaders who are committed to tackle issues affecting communities and societies.

I'm looking forward to reading about the places that were visited during the World Pulse team travels. It will be exciting to here about current conditions, success stories and how grassroots level initiatives are being supported by the political leadership of the countries you are visiting...

The Moremi Initiative is all about Engaging, Inspiring and Equipping African Women Leaders. The application deadline is Wednesday Mar 30, 2011 for this current application cycle.
