Empowere a girl sustain a nation

Empowering women and girls is a dream come true In my life as I am able put smile on some faces. My heart bleeds each time I see Women and girls under, pain truma and torture as was the case of Eve my causin who was raped at the age of 17 and got pregnant. Due to her situation, she was stigmatized by family, friends and community who saw her as a disgrace. Considering her family was not well to do family she was driven from home and had little or nothing to eat until she acquired some life skills which enable her sustain herself and her baby. I saw this as chanllenge for all woman to be able empowered with skills in other to be financially independent because an empowered woman is a sustainable nation.

Hello, Diana,

Welcome to World Pulse! What a joy to see another voice from Cameroon is rising up.

You definitely belong here. You can connect with like-minded women who are passionate to enpower women and girls.

I’m sorry about what happen to your cousin. How sad it is that the victim is punished. It is not her fault at all. How is she doing now? Is she working?

Dear Diana,
You are very absolutely right. When women and girls are empowered no body can abuse them or make them do anything. I relate or understand you clearly. Are you thinking on a project for empowerment for the girls and women in your community?
You are welcome to World Pulse and congrats on your new post.
Take care of yourself
Liz

Thanks very much Ma. Actually I've started a small project for girls to acquire skills in beading, liquid soap, body lotion and other skills.
