This is such a great plan, to provide such solid support to women running for government office in your country, including making sure they don't get closed out from being heard through the whole process. I imagine that the women running really feel and appreciate this support.

Very inspiring! Thank you for sharing. When women, especially female politicians, are given an online platform to share their views, experiences and stories, their voices amplify.
Worldpulse it the best place to do this.

This is an inspiring initiative! I keep getting surprised by all the finds I read here on WP! I would never have thought that people aspiring to political office need any training in anything. And here you are training immediate future leaders! Good on you. Together we stand!

Dear Otahelp,

Great initiative, thank you. When women are tech savvy, they can reach greater audiences and it gives them confidence to advance their agendas.

It is extremely encouraging that there is a women dedicated to support female politicians to run for office.

Hopefully, the more women there are at the decision-making table, the better the chances that women's issues will be promoted, debated and acted upon for the betterment of society.

Keep up the good work. More power to you.

Hello, Otahelp,

These are great activities! Wow, you're influencing the political scene. That's something I look forward to reading soon!

Surely, you have impacted more than 5 people, dear. Thanks for sharing! Keep it up!

Dear Otahelp,
This project is what every woman leader needs to be able to get their message across and project themselves to the public. I wish you success in this initiative. And success means electing more women into public office. Would love to know more about this.
