Introducing myself and my journal: Voices of Change Agents

About Me: A devoted wife, mother and grand mother, seeing a world of change all around me, I am excited to join the community with similar interests. As a South Asian woman who had a very supportive father I was able to complete my University education, a Bachelor's degree in Arts. It was after marriage that I have been successful in completing my post graduate studies. This was also as a result of having an understanding and supportive husband. So two men in my life have contributed to my success and achievements. This has been a rather rare situation for a woman from South Asia.I mothered 3 sons and a daughter and now I am a grandmother of twin boys.I enjoy working with rural women and teaching/training.

My Passions: Uplift the lives of the disadvantaged women and children

My Challenges: Work towrds eradicating gender based violence in Sri Lanka

My Vision for the Future: A safe and peaceful world

My Areas of Expertise: Trainer, writer, researcher

    Hi Sujatha,

    It's wonderful to have such a strong voice from Sri Lanka here on PulseWire! And a woman as yourself who enjoyed the advantages of a supportive husband and father, giving back to ensure this repeated type of behavior in your country.

    I'd like to direct you to World Pulse's new and exciting program, Voices of Our Future. Perhaps yourself or someone you know would make a good candidate for the program.

    Warm regards, Jade
