Launching HappyWorld Peace & Green Village The creation of this organization is a dream come true for me because I always wanted to serve my community especially with the current challenges.I received a story award for this article in late 2017: https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.worldpulse.com%2Fen%2Fv... .After publications I received alot of comments from encouragers who advised me to create an organisation considering the fact that we had serious political crisis because of poor management of the French and English system in Cameroon. This is an article I published when the idea came up: https://www.worldpulse.com/community/users/dama2nv/posts/88300. I finally got my legal documents from my administration in February and then I planned for the launching party which took place on the 24th March 2019.

Talking on Gender equality, we educated invitees on the advantages of Gender equality and the various ways of empowering the woman. We introduced them to safe platforms of speaking out especially as we are affected by the current violence and conflict that’s going on in our community. We encouraged invitees to join World Pulse and Womens March as these are sister organizations that we will be working with to achieve our objective of gender equality We had a vegan/nonalcoholic diet for lunch and presented gifts to our invitees. We gave out strategies and activities on how this organization will function. As a girl affected by conflict and eagerly waiting for a change, this is my story, this is a story for change .All thanks to World pulse for bringing the best out of me. I am doing things I never thought I could do because I thought I was a girl.As a current World Pulse ambassador, i promise to work tiredlessly in the fight for gender equality by lifting up the voices of women in my commuinity. This is my story for a girl who has been empowered and her dreams have come true.Change starts with a story.
