Hello everyone on the sub-Sahara Africa Group my name is Stelz. Although I have been on this group for a while now I wish to formerly introduced myself as part of my Digital Changemaking 101 training. I am a Cameroonian currently living in Addis Ababa. I am a stay at home mum at the moment. I was introduced to World Pulse by our very own Sub-Saharan Africa Lead Mrs Leina Chi and straight away I caught the vison and since then I have been using my time to promote the World Pulse platform is this part of the world focusing my energy on issues women are facing here in Ethiopia.
I see the Sub-Saharan Africa Group as a very vibrant group in the online community that discusses issues that face our continent at large hence the reason I decided to be part of you all adding my humble voice to this great course of women empowerment.
What interest me most in this group are the similarities in topics that are discussed. We can see that as Sub-Saharan Africans we share similar demises, if it is not one old cultural practice that disfavour women it will be gender based violent or women streamlined on issues. The good thing is, we in this community are beginning to campaign against all these malpractices to women and we must NOT relent our efforts as no one will do it for us. I hope to contribute on these issues especially on gender poverty and bridging the gap on gender issues by means of empowering women wherever and whenever.
I wish to add that if you are a member of this online community and leaves in Ethiopia, please contact me let’s put our efforts together to make a difference. Kudos to the Sub-Sharan Africa group especially to the community champions and of course to our great Sub-Saharan Africa Lead Mrs Yvonne Leina Chi for the great job she is doing leading these amazing women.
