Dear Tiffany and Maya,

I grew up in India and have been in America for 30 years now.

My community?  The Human Race.  The Human Family.  Neal donald walsh was listening in to my conversations with my children and other people over the phone and got inspired to write Conversations with God, that's my view:)

What is a big challenge I am facing?  To have the training, resources, know how, and the team, to create an immensely effective online platform - website, youtube channel, to offer the teaching that comes through me - to Awaken Mothers to their role as the Guides To The Human Race, the life they bring on the planet.  It all stems from that - the feeling of not-being-valuable, something-missing, the frustration, the inner agony, the devaluing of the role of the mother across the planet, that then permeates in each child raised by each mother, in every community, every nation.  Imagine raising children that way.  Then what is given to them?  What I say is that when who I/you come from, our source of life, being born from, isn't good-enough, or worthy enough, or valuable enough, just for being a Mother, just for raising this precious divine life she brings on the planet, for nurturing, guiding, precious human being, if that is not worthy, valuable, if that is what the mother is made to believe and become over time, and if that is who she is, then what does she give, what gets perpetuated to the next generation?  And this cycle continues, has been.  Through Mothers Awakening, I speak to Mothers, I offer teachings, practices, exercises, workshops, seminars, to Awaken Mothers to their gloriously empowered role as the Guides to the Human Race.  I need ALL THE HELP TO TAKE IT TO MASSES, TO MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF MOTHERS GLOBALLY, LOCALLY.  

Imagine a household where the Mother is at ease with just being a Mother.  A mother is secure, confident, supported, valued, honored, for just being the Mother.  That she is able to focus on doing her job.  Without concern for money, respect, safety, resources.  That she embodies the honor, the value, of being the Guide to the human life she has brought on this Earth.  How would that Mother act, be?  What would she give, teach, her child?  How would that child become?  What would be the level of awareness, intelligence unleashed, of each generation?  The resultant Peace, Creativity, Progress, is what I must cause in the world of Mothers and her children.  We are already way behind on doing this.  I need your immediate help.  Would be useful to have a conversation at the earliest possible.  Thanks. Is this a Clinton foundation initiative?   Look forward to your reply.

I am a young advocate leading a youth led organization in Pakistan. I believe that “You have to take a step if you want to bring a change, and you have to do something,”

I aim to build a gender sensitize, educated, violence free, healthy and a peaceful Pakistan for women and girls. I have been working on women rights from last eight years. I led child marriage campaign of my organization in which we fought for health and education opportunities for young girls at policy level. Due to our political advocacy punishment and fines for violation of child marriages are increased. I am now working to increase minimum age for a girl to marry from 16 years to 18 years. 

My vision for the future of our young generation is that we have to engage young people in all decision-making levels of the peacebuilding processes. It’s not just about the token representation of young people. The thing this resolution really addresses is the participation of young people: their prevention; their integration; that they have a basic right to live in a safe place where they have livelihoods; where they have the opportunities for education; where they have opportunities for sports. We have to actually include and integrate peacebuilding processes in every aspect of life.

Hello everyone,

My apologies for joining late (2nd week). My name is Olunosen and I am from Edo State in Nigeria. Personally, the problem my community still faces is the cultural place of women and the need for societal validation. Even though we have powerful women, many of us are still prisoners of our tradition. Unmarried women, Widows, Childless women etc. I love to take pictures and also write and hope that this course would help improve my implementation strategies towards a wider reach and pray that a day would come when women are not judged based on their gender or social status !
