Initiative Update

Digital Advocacy Workshop

Keturah Shammah
Posted August 7, 2020 from Nigeria

With Support from World Pulse as a Digital Ambassador in Nigeria, and as Part of the Digital #Balance4Better initiative, I hosted over 40 women across various walks of Lives for full day workshop on how to harness the power of technology for advocacy, personal and professional development and as well economic empowerment.

The event was beyond expectation as having all the participants hearing about World Pulse for the First time, but having heard about my successful story with World Pulse , more than half of the women signed up immediately and now almost all have singed up with some beginning to share their stories on World Pulse.

The event which was focused on how to use Technology for advocacy and socio-economic purposes was an eye opener and inspiration for the participants to have learnt how to laverage the use digital tools and resources to better their live which before then was a novice to many of them.

How many people have you impacted since your last update?

Hi Keturah,
I love seeing this photo, it is like being able to meet these women and know they have met you. How exciting that not only did they get to meet you and have great training, they know about World Pulse and are already signing up!
Great work!

Wow,
You look so passionate and competent and invested in your task to bring the light of the power of technology to your audience. Generating ideas to harness technology for advocacy and socio-economic growth doesn't come naturally for a lot of us and needs a lot of mentor-ship at the moment. It must have been such a pleasure to be the bridge for these women.
Good on you, Keturah.

In sisterhood,
Nini
