Summoned courage

Posted January 24, 2019 from Cameroon

Before I joined world pulse, I was this quiet and calm girl who will feel very hurt but easily led it go. I had a vision of giving back to the girls and women in my community as per my experience growing up. Whenever I shared the vision with the people close to me, I always get very negative responses.Since I graduated, I have had several jobs but never satisfied with any irrespective of the pay package. But when I join world pulse , I have the courage to pursue what I believe in no !matter what others think. I have been able to organize menstraul hygiene campaigns , reach out to internally displaced girls and organized empowerment training sessions for internally displaced women in my community. I am very satisfied with what am doing now and intern to do more. I am producing reusable sanitary pads for rural and vulnerable women and girls.

   It is very challenging for me because of lack of resources. I have just a sewing machine and have to pay for the finishing parts which is quite expensive for me. I need sisters to support me in my project so I will be able to reach out to more and more women.

Hello Sylvie,

Thanks for sharing your very inspiring post. I'm so happy to hear how much impact World Pulse has made in your life, dear! Keep it coming, and please do share more with your sisters on World Pulse so we can encourage, support, and uplift you even more.

Let us know what sort of support you're looking for? Have you already looked at the WP "Community" page and done a search to find other sisters on a similar mission to you so that you can collaborate? If not, this is the page: https://www.worldpulse.com/en/my-pulse/community.

Hope you're having a great day!
