Hi world purse sisters, in order for us to be helpful to our communities we should share what we have with our communities.

Women are gifted with many things ideas, skills , resources, talents, connections and mostly visions that can be shared during this lock down and applied.

One of the lockdown advantages is that almost everyone is available and open to learn. It's a period where HOPE is lost in many lives because no one knows when this epidemic will end, so let's change our world by sharing what we have to increase it in many people's lives and make a positive change.

I personally got to learn a soap making skill to train only widows and teen moms but it's something that I have realised everyone person can do and those i trained at first are training others and they are also earning a living. I didn't have food to distribute in families but I had a skill I shared and the few I have trained so far have food on their plates now. I never had food enough to even feed my two children but I had a skill. The skill is helping my hungry community get food!!!! Isn't that amazing??? 

 

Am sure the skills we share will help our communities go through covic19 epidemic better and improved and the skills acquired during covic19 will stay and covic19 will go

Hi Tendo,
So true that so many of us are learning a lot these months. Your story of the training for women into making and selling soap shows how transforming it is. It is amazing. It is so good to hear your voice: "let's change our world by sharing what we have to increase it in many people's lives and make a positive change".
In sisterhood,
Tam

Hello, Tendo,

You are right. COVID-19 will eventually disappear, but the skills we learn during this period will be beneficial for us in the long run.

You are a wise woman for making your lockdown a productive one. It's amazing how you help your community, but you are more amazing!

Thanks for inspiring us!
