We are so happy to have you join our PulseWire community. I encourage you to reach out to other members, or start a dialogue by commenting on another journal entry. Please take a moment to post a photo of yourself or an image that best represents you. You might also want to browse through all of our community groups (http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/groups) as it's a great way to build powerful networks, find members with similar interests to your own, share ideas or actions.

Take a moment to look at two amazing groups which I think you might be interested in joining. Leah's wonderful group, "Jambo, Hello from Kenya!" has brought together women from all over who brainstorm solutions, pose questions, test ideas and support each other's visions. It can be found at http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/groups/1474.

The other group is the Rafiki Club, managed by mamaAfrica, which brings women together to promote literacy in rural Kenya. It can be found at http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/groups/6627. Please do not hesitate to reach out to these amazing soul-sisters whose lights shine so brightly on PulseWire.

Again, welcome and I know that you will find PulseWire to be engaging, inspiring and thought-provoking. Janice PulseWire Community Director

Dear Aboling, Like you, I have recently joined this bee-hive network of women dedicated to their cause.I love the experience and even at my old age, I feel I am standing on firmer feet! I feel the warmth and generosity of my new friends who are always ready commenting, encouraging and offering help. So, I hope it is an equally rich experience to you. What I am confessing is that... At a certain stage of my life , I used to be outraged with sympathetic views of ,'poor African kids' kind of attitute' from any one outside our community. I suppose it is the reminiscences of agression towards a colonizing westerner. However, I am cured now with things falling into perspective. The size of voluntary work from young people travelling all over the world wherever needed is admirable. I salute you in your angelic job and eagerness to help. asha
