I MET THE SISTER OF MY DREAM

THE SISTER OF MY DREAM
THE SISTER OF MY DREAM (1/1)

 

I am  a widow and has singly brought up my children going through a lot of difficulties and challenges from family and society as a whole. After some years I started seeing young girls and women as a useful resource if  social problems are to be reduced in my community. In 2012 I started looking at avenues on how to  bring these women together. Despite this passion, I always meet people whom we did not share the same vision thus making it very difficult to go about my goal. In 2016, knowing we could create greater impact together than I could do alone, I gathered a few women from my community and we went through the 10 regions of Cameroon sensitizing women from my community on the positive effects of women coming together and the advantages this will have on the girl child. This association was finally launched in the presence of the regional delegate for women empowerment and the family and it stared beautifully but for a short time as crises came so soon. Women from my community became internally displaced persons and life became more difficult. My worries increased because we had visualized promising programs for these women and it could no longer materialize. Secondly, at a time when women in other communities are thinking of how they could contribute to climate change and reduce poverty, women in my community are still vulnerable to poverty and ignorant about climate change. In 2018, i started figuring out how I could bring these women together in their displaced areas and empower them economically through capacity building. Then, I did not have the necessary skills the women needed at that time nor finance to hire an expert. More over it was a war zone thereby making it very risky. One blessed day I was watching the TV and listened to an advert on a training program of my interest but I never had the finances to be part of it. While discussing with a colleague, she told me her elder sister is an expert in that domain and she gave me her number. I contacted her and was given a rendezvous. I met her the next day and we discussed about my training. In the course of our discussion she talked to me about worldpulse and I was interested. I came back home and logged in that same day the 19th of January 2019. Sister Edith Tarke is the sister who introduced me to worldpulse.    Since I met sister Tarke Edith my vision for working with women for development changed. Given the fact that she is a widow, she understands my problem because we share the same pain. God has just put me in a place where my dreams will come true. Thank you sister Edith,  thank you sisters of worldpulse, I am glad to belong.

Hello Karen! I appreciate you welcomed me. Thank you for the link. I am so sorry it took long for me to write my first story. I promise I will keep writing.

Hello, dear,

You’re welcome! It’s always a pleasure to know our World Pulse sisters.

Oh, please don’t apologize. I understand. It could take a while for some women to write their first post, too. It’s not a crime.haha.

Great! I look forward to your next posts!
