Hi Nomsa,
Have you considered giving emotional support to the women and girls virtually? I'm positive that many of your sisters here would readily offer that in the first instance. Count me in should it be an option. :)

Well done! Keep up the passion!

Hi Nomsa,

You could reach out to women via private message in South Africa. You can do a filtered search by region on the "community," page. You could try messaging Monica, for instance, to see if she needs help with her initiative:

Friendly reminders:
1. Browse similar posted needs (open and closed ones) to discover what they have in common with yours and how you can improve your "pitch" = increase your chances of success!
2. Prepare/update paperwork (certificates and attests usually required from an organization like yours) in case of donations or grants;
3. Start moving ahead = write (baby steps...!) and discuss a project draft - to validate the priorities within your group and get ready to spend the resources that will be arriving;
4. Do not wait to find a doner and then start writing your proposal/project. Start now!!!
5. DonĀ“t forget to visit the World Pulse website >>> My Pulse >>> Resources and use its filters (right upper corner) to find offers that may suit your current need;
6; Share the opportunities that may not apply to you but can interest others;
7. Spread the word about your failures and achievements in grant/donations requests.
Yes, tell these stories too... They will enlighten and inspire your network.
