Chi Yvonee is such a nice lady full of love and compassion. I saw her first time when i went to visit my Cameroonian friend, last March. My friend lost her mom, and we went in group to be with her. It was a holy day in Ethiopia. Yvonee's a Camroonian. She was dressed in a tradition dress which is hand embroidered purple dress, with golden thread. She wore also the traditional gold earring, with the a pendant, it's a big round one. Her hair also plaited with the style of the tribe. I was thinking she was from with in. She is beautiful, the lady who sat by my side and me didn't take our eyes off from Yev.

Last June, another lady from Cameroon, who is a diplomat spouse invited me to her place to launch WP. We were 35 women. I carried my notebook pc, phone and... While Leina and Stelz were explaining about Wp, I signed up and became a member before they finish discussion. Stella is an Ambassador of WP in Ethiopia. Now, we're inviting more people. All the ladies who were there when we launched are not active, i think...Yev, Stella and me are just busy around here. because I'm the citizen of Ethiopia, I'm contacting new people and we had two session at Leina's place. On 3rd of Feb'17 we'll have a big training with other new members in a hotel. Hopefully, many people will join us by then. I've planned to do one session- Medical doctors only 2nd- Journalist, and any media worker 3rd- Writers, poet, artists 4th- High school students 5th- University students 6th- business owners 7th- more NGO founders....which we didn't invite them or who missed our trainings... 8th- more groups in other cities where I've friends...

The training was, just introduction about WP. They all know ho to use digital tools already, but we asked them to be our members. We encourage them to write their stories and post it. If they've anything to be offered, or a need to ask, ...post it on the Wp site. We tell them that WP is a place where people join forces and work hard to achieve their dreams. We advised them to sign up and share anything they have and use what is offered there.

Thank you for reading

Hi Jill,

It's been long time. How are you? How are things going there? I"m mobilizing people and try to introduce Wp as far as I can. Women with a very rich stories are coming to WP.

You're going to see wonders.

Cheers

Awww my deares sister Mulitti your authenticity never ceases to amaze me. The way you say it as it is, is just amazing. I applaud your efforts and surely too Yvonne and your commitment to help us breakthrough in to the Ethiopian community. sometimes it takes a local to make the people have confident to one's message. Thank you ever so much for making the women in Ethiopia not only DREAM but believe that their vision is realisable. Together we continue to spread the World Pulse message of impacting lives and creating a world where all women thrive, by organising more sessions. Looking forward to next week

Cheers
