Betty, I want to welcome you to PulseWire. I hope that you will share with us your experiences, insights and success stories from your work with Alternatives to Violence. The work you do is so vital and I am sure many would benefit from your thoughts in this area. To get started, you can share your ideas and dreams by writing in your journal, reading other member's journals and offering comments, and joining groups to participate in the discussions. Our group directory ( is full of women who have come together around a single topic or interest. You might also consider starting your own group where you can build a powerful network bringing together PulseWire members with similar visions who want to share ideas or actions.

If there is anything I can help you with or if you have any particular interests, please let me know and I will try to steer you in the right direction. I look forward to reading more from you. Again, welcome. Janice PulseWire Community Director

Hello Janice,

I appreciate your concern about me writing my journal. I want to make sure i understand exactly what is required before i write down anything. What are some of the things that you would like me to include in my journal?

I hope to read from you soon.

Love & Peace,


Hello Janice,

What are some of the things do you want me to include in the journal?

Hope to read from you soon again.



Betty, in regards to your journal, nothing is required but it would be wonderful for you to share your thoughts, ideas, experiences and work with Alternatives to Violence. You might like to look at a few journals to see what others are writing. Some members write about their personal lives or the lives of those around them, while others write about their work. Here are a few journals you might be interested in reading:

Sunita is a student in Bangladesh but also has done much to help her village in her home country of Nepal.

Nalubega is a project coordinator for Uganda SPACE and writes about issues that face women and children in Uganda.

Leah is an HIV survivor, and counsellor for HIV/Aids clients in Kenya.

And Maria is a mother of 4 daughters who speaks passionately about domestic abuse prevention, and issues that affect Native Americans and women in the U.S.

Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with. Bahati njema, Janice
