Women on T.E.C.H (Teach. Empowers. Changemaker. Hope.)

 

World Pulse Philippines was organized last November 21, 2020, and had our first launched of Meet & Greet Online last March 1, welcoming the members of World Pulse over a Facebook online community together with our elevator pitch https://youtu.be/q2z1GIe9gss  (a great work together by World Pulse Ambassadors and Encouragers of World Pulse PH).

We also had our World Pulse PH “Kapehan” Meetups (https://youtu.be/MKU-8r8LJD8) and Meet & Greet Online Part 2 welcoming our World Pulse Sisters globally https://www.facebook.com/worldpulseph/videos/3611179608956669/

This is our way to LINK with women who want to be heard and make an impact through the power of her story in line with empowered women highlighting World Pulse PH Advocacy on Special Needs, Mental Health and Disasters in the Philippines.

Along with this, we have also launched a Support Group for Filipino Mommies raising children with special needs. We believe that we don’t need to go through life alone. Our Mommy’s who are called to be in these “special needs” should have a support group. In this support group, we have reach 26 members and counting (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1161250104206142/)

Our World Pulse PH “Kapehan” was successfully conducted in Quezon City, Cebu, and General Santos.

The launching of the World Pulse PH Facebook group had reach 199 members, with 11 new World Pulse members, while World Pulse PH PAGE had 310 followers, 1,486 post engagements, 125 comments, 33 shares with 275 likes.

Our Meet-Ups gained new sisters/friends and events. Read a story about Meet Ups from PRAM https://bit.ly/2UFtqpG) and KAREN QUIÑONES-AXALAN https://bit.ly/2xuVmo6) An invitation from BLANCHE YAMBA-CORDERO https://bit.ly/33Tm0mA, KAREN QUIÑONES-AXALAN https://bit.ly/2wHXeKd, AKSHAYA9 https://bit.ly/2UF2AxK about the events.

In the coming months, World Pulse PH will be engaging more webinar events as we have stirred up the idea of creating a campaign online reaching every woman globally with our advocacies either online or offline.

World Pulse Philippines' objectives are to L.E.A.D.

L - LINK with women who want to be heard and make an impact through the power of her story.

E - Encourage women to be part of a worldwide sisterhood where we can speak and lift each other through the World Pulse platform.

A - Advocate individual's aspirations by collaboration to benefits children, young girls, and women in our community.

D - Develop World Pulse PH Sisterhood through active participation as an encourager, share stories, join meet-ups and support any campaign online or offline.

In order for us to continually meet our set objectives, we need to engage other women to share their advocacy so that each can learn from each other.

The technology is widely used as a tool to learn and to connect and by sustaining what has started, we should have the following:

  • Reliable cloud platform for video and audio conferencing, chat and webinars account.
  • Collective participation of women who are interested to share their advocacy online or offline.
  • Creative common ideas on sharing knowledge to capacitate every individual

This webinar goes Livestream via Facebook live had reached not only in the Philippines but also in other countries, making ten (10) webinars shared by L.E.A.D. speaker which were viewed and brought interest to many was a success.

It connects women by encouraging them to share their stories and advocacy online. Through this online webinar, a barrier has been break because it is showing us that there are women who have more to tell, women can express, women can connect and women can build a movement on breaking the silence by one click, one comment, one connection at a time.

The realization of this webinar brought T.E.C.H. together with World Pulse PH Sisters:  

T - Teaches us to read and learn how to use digital tools available online.

E - Empowers women in my community that they can not only write, but also tell their stories online. Most of the time we watch other people's stories, but this time we tell our story. A story that inspires and empowers women.

C - Changemaker, is how this technology brings us together. We gather knowledge and resources to make a change. The women of today can use technology by pooling of talents and skills. This we create a difference. Women can share their experienced, can share their advocacy and share her interest that everyone can learn from each other.

H - Hope. There is hope for every woman that when they can access the internet and start building one voice than those who are deprived, abuse, experienced injustice can be heard and receive support through encouragement and create awareness. This deliberately creates a revolution of oneness.

The use of technology brings inspiration and encourage women online that they can learn and engage because I believe that we have the power to connect online or offline, we only need a door of opportunity and sisterhood that can lead to a greater impact.
