Welcome on board dear Marne, I am really excited to learn more about your work and the She Will Connect Program. I remeber few years ago when I visited Intel with World Pulse and met all the wonderful women working there, it was one amazing experience.

I believe the logo She Will Connect is very empowering. I always hold a gift I got during my speaking tour in Intel that written on it: She Will Connet... I will.

Welcome to the group Marne and i am super excited to connect with you and read more about your actions. I think it is empowering to me reading about women being part of business and technology. before pursuing my MBA, I took a degree in IT, and I was so excited to carry on a career path that combines both IT and business. it was a challenge, wasnt easy, I was judged and faced so much objection, but connecting with women like you on worldpulse was very inspiring and helped me put my thoughts together knowing what I want to do in my life. Thanks again for connecting with us. looking forward reading from you.

Thank you very much to those who though of starting such great opportunity to Women and every Gender to meet and discuss what next in terms of moving foraward with digital World.

As you understand we are Women living in 21rst century, a technowlogical driven centery, full of Digital opportunities, but we can confess that 99 % of the women in the community we serve are still living a15th Century and that is resulted to the fact that they are technologically backward. 

We are working hard to close this gape in the community in which we serve, but it is not an easy process.

we have tried several time to apply for atleast 10 Computers Donation so that we can start a computer training literacy but over the period of 5 years we still struggling to get even second hand computers just to provide a deep training to Women.

I call up any one who maybe connected to an organization which can be helpfull in this regard, please respond and let us know  so that we can apply for donation.

Our center has Women well knowlegable in terms of computer literacy to volunteer for the teaching program, and they are real kin to give all they have to empower Women.

The center is ready with a class room. We have made arragment with students from didfferent colleges and Universities here in Cape Town South Africa whom are willing to support the initiative in terms of Teaching, and fixing compueters. What we need is only 10 new or used Computers n for starting. 

Please, we need your suport in this regard, should some one need to connect with us, and get more deatails on our  project sumary please e-mail us on: videfi@gmail.com

All the best dear collegues in technology and other social issues afecting Women and World as larger.
