Introducing World Pulse ...
Having our own global south inter-generational moment in Honiara

I'm starting my week in Honiara the capital of the Solomon Islands as a member of the Commonwealth Observer Group for the recently concluded National General Elections.

I cannot write much about the elections due to the code of conduct of the observer mission but I can share that I've had a chance to connect with several women from the "Commonwealth Family" including Kimberly Gilbert of Trinidad and Tobago a Board member of the Caribbean Regional Youth Council.

In between our deployment out to local centres and preparing reports, we have been having our own Inter-generational sharing of experiences.

It has been wonderful to hear the passion and determination in Kimberly's accounts of what she sees, experienced and her vision for supporting young women's empowerment.

I personally want more people to hear about Kimberly and what she has planned.

"Have you heard about World Pulse?" I asked. 

I've introduced Kimberly to World Pulse, showed her how to register and also shared my commitment of writing at least 1 article a month for World Pulse.

Now I am looking forward to following Kimberly not just on "social media" but this is a platform where she can share and learn with women in a safe online space that can encourage her interests and innovations !

Dear Sharon,
I love this story! Hearing of women unaware of what we have in World Pulse together finding out about it from a World Pulse sister is such great news.
