World Pulse has shaped my life personally, motivated me!

Any time I get mail from World Pulse or visit the website, I become sad, because my mother comes into my mind. In my efforts to support her I fell into the hands of the cheater whom I have entrusted my mother to care. The caretaker took all my start up investments, making me struggle thereafter. 

I love my mother and when I read stories of other sisters, I think I am not in this alone. I grew up with girls particularly those I schooled with. They were beaten when they are not able to come to school and they are not able to give reasons and I now know, PERIOD!

On this platform, I had the opportunity to write a project about PERIOD to the US Embassy in Ghana, though not successful, I gave off the best of me. I also had another chance to apply for support of COVID- 19 for Refugees in Ghana, also not successful yet I am motivated that I have been heard and I have the chance to apply again when application is opened.

On the field, I am reading and learning from other sisters to adopt some of the methods which are applicable to us.

On the whole I am fine here because many are those of us seeking to find the appropriate places for women particularly the upcoming young ones. 

I AM HAPPY TO BE HERE AND THANK YOU FOR THE MOTIVATION.

Hello Acroghana,
I'm sorry to hear of your ordeal with money swindlers and the business setbacks that dealt you. But it is also wonderful that you are here with others to be empowered to keep pushing and knocking at doors. You never know when one will open and we'll be here to celebrate. In the meantime, we cheer each other on, and support each other through life challenges. Good on you for challenging yourself to write project proposals and share your ideas. That too is leadership!
My best wishes for this year with the challenges and opportunities within.

Thank you Nini for your kind words and support. God bless!

Hello, Acroghana,

How is your mother doing right now, dear? How horrible that your mom's caretaker stole your investment. Was she caught? I hope so, and I hope God will replenish what was stolen from you, dear.

You are a determined and resilient woman. I'm praying for doors of opportunities to open up before you, dear. They say good times don't last, so are bad times. This is not the end of your story, dear. You will overcome just as you have overcome challenges in the past. I believe in you. Please keep us posted!

Dear Acroghana,

I am so sorry to hear about how someone who was supposed to be generous and kind would take advantage of you and your mother, I hope you and your mother are both okay and that is something no one should have to experience. I appreciate you sharing your story because you emphasized the importance of not giving up even when unsuccessful because the worst that can happen is you get told "no" but eventually your hard work and leaps of faith will work in your favor. Once again, thank you for sharing and I will keep you and your mother in my thoughts.
