Hi! My name is Amy and I am thrilled to have found this blog. I am interested in learning about and promoting awareness of women (and children's) health and human rights violations. Additionally, I would like to DO something to help change the oppressive system that allows such atrocities to happen. I am excited to be in communication with women around the world working towards the same ends.
Particularly, I am interested in the role that good design and developing technologies play in promoting the welfare of women and children around the world. I am also interested in methods/strategies used to empower women everywhere. Following, I am a big fan of the Global Fund for Women and their grant-making procedures that trust local women to develop sustainable programs to benefit their communities. I would like to learn more about what organizations exist to educate and empower women around the world and how their impact is being measured (quantitatively and qualitatively) I believe we are all connected and that our triumphs and tribulations are shared on a spiritual level.
