The official launching of World Pulse Sub Sahara Africa Group

Posted March 8, 2016 from United States

International Women's Day(IWD), is celebrated on March 8 every year.In different regions celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation, and love towards women for women's economic, political, andsocial achievements.

It is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.

No doubt the Officials of World Pulse thought it wise to launch for the very first time a Sub Sahara Africa Group,today March 8 2016 to provide a platform for African women to speak up,collaborate,share their stories and create solutions to their own problems.

World Pulse is a heroic online community which brings together women and allies from 190 countries from around the world to speak out and build solutions to today’s hardest problems.On World Pulse,women use digital communication toaccelerate change,unite and amplify women'svoices.There is a great sisterhood where women speak freely without fear of retribution; connect with other women around the world; gain leadership skills and roles through training and unique online leadership programs; share their stories online—something that is lacking for most Internet users in developing countries—and empowers them to believe in their own voice. World Pulse enables women to unite with thousands of individuals, organizations, and key influencers in the global social change sector.It is a pulse of great opportunities.

It is with with joy.honor and appreciation to World Pulse that we bring to you World Pulse Sub Sahara Africa Group.

Welcome to World Pulse where sisters share,laugh and cry together but still rise.

When women with positive vibes come together ,they are so strong and can move mountains.Come and with your strong voices and echo them from all corners of the world.Together we are stronger.

From our team to all of you -Happy International Women's Day 2016.

Join in the dance as we celebrate this day and the birth of this new group.

Waooo good for you.Something remarkable just happened. I went for my lunch break and decided to just watch the video now with no fear or hiding again. Well it's my break I said to myself. And my coworkers who were on break too started coming closer one by one to join me.They all liked the video and are now asking so many questions about World Pulse and how to join. The video is really nice.I can't wait to share with social media and other groups. Thanks and tell everyone in the office I said HAPPY IWD. Make it fun Much love.

How fantastic! I'm glad they're excited, and how could they not be after watching your video. ;) Thank you for creating this! It must have taken a lot of work!

We are having a little party here tonight in celebration of IWD and to honor our many volunteers who live here locally. It should be fun. :)

Hello Kim. With hands over heart I thank you. My coworkers also watched the video over and over and are inviting their friends from other units to come and watch the video during their break time.How cool is that. And to think that I created something like that gives me so much joy.What we hope most importantly to get from the video is for more women to be motivated to join World Pulsev and be change- makers in their various communities. Happy IWD Kim and do bless someone today with your voice- written or verbal). I am blessed by your praises for the video. Yours truly. Kuja
