Women activists and empowes

Ladies I feel that it is high time we should say no to being used as a stepping stone by mongers who make money in the name of helping women or rather donating. Now there are too many organisations who target women for donations claiming that they will double your donation to help fellow women..these orgs never help any woman with that money instead they are making money under the disguise of being doner agencies.. I would rather suggest Crowdfunding groups within our communities and start projects to empower ourselves. No one will ever change our lives unless we do it ourselves. Every Economy which is doing well in the world has 80% contribution from women. If we.can do it behind the scenes why can't we show the world we can do it. Look at the Cocoa plantations, rice paddies, wheat, tobbaco, cotton, maize fields and animal husbandry in the world, the biggest players are women. Let's empower ourselves you will see how they will run out of business. Why is it 90% of the doner agencies are run by men and if a woman starts to run one a lot of negative is said on it.  and it will soon go down.. I am speaking to the First Ladies of the world to join hands and remember their fellow women out here coz they have the power and funds to help us. I'm proposing a United Nations Women's Organizations(UNWO) . This organisation will bring peace, sanity and wealth to all countries of the world. Ladies help your men to change the world . That's my story I hope you will love it . Thank you and stay blessed

Hi Elizabeth,

Thanks for sharing your thoughtful and inspiring post. I hear you. Women can definitely effectively run these organizations worldwide. I think this organization that you are proposing already exists, UN Women, or did you mean something else?

Hope you're having a great day!

Dear Elizabeth,
I so strongly agree with you and am glad you laid it out for us all to think deeply on the power of supporting sisters directly and making sure that money donated is not being skimmed off to support cushioned lifestyles of in particular men who take a big percentage for themselves. We have the opportunity here within WorldPulse to find ways to make much more direct funding possible between sisters. And I hope too that men involved here will look carefully at what they can do. It is time too, for women - and men - to trust that women leadership in a donations system is to be trusted. We know how to make it happen where it matters. Thanks for raising the issue.
In sisterhood,
Tam

It's a great story and you are so right. When women feel empowered and supported, they can change the world

Wonderful....all the best with your project. I hope it goes well . UN Women I think exists. Are you looking to register an organisation to get women to support other women?

Dear Eliza,
Ooh really? This a trending story! Do you know of such? Are they operating illegally? I will like to hear more from you.
