For a long time now..I feel like I still do not understand what I am doing. I feel like I don't have clarity. Many people tell me starting up is always the most difficult part of a journey.
For the past one year, I been on google trying to research and find ideas to help girls and women in my community not because I want to feel good about it or for people to see what I do. But because I want to satisfy that voice inside of me telling me I have a purpose, I fantasised on "if I had money" I will go to poor communities and throw big parties for children and women to have all they need, eat and drink and know that these things are not luxury.. because food is a necessity.
But again is this kind of help sustainable?? No.. because after the party they will go hungry again.
I want to do something meaningful, something sustainable, and that will have have a larger impact in the society.
I grew up in rural community, with no roads, working odd jobs to buy text books sometimes and using towels during Menstruation. I just feel I have reached that stage in my life to give something meaningful to my community and especially girls. Fighting Menstruation poverty is in my mind, empowering the voices of young girls, grooming women economically and for them to stand financial independent is all in the dream.
All I need is somebody to tell me you can do it. I have the power to do it. You have the knowledge and therefore go for it.
