Review for World Pulse Voices, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

World Pulse's vision is to enable women's voices to be heard globally. The organization has created PulseWire, an online network that enables women to tell their stories and get feedback and encouragement from other women around the world. An example of one group that has formed on PulseWire is the Book Group that reads books written by women who tell their accounts of what has happened in their part of the world. What makes this group so special is you can get feedback and additional insights from women who actually live in the region where this book's action takes place. WorldPulse also trains women correspondents to tell what is happening in their part of the world. This provides an opportunity for women who would not ordinarily have a voice to speak out about the challenges they face in their communities. After the Haiti earthquake, women from Haiti were able to report on what was happening on the ground -- stories that needed to be told.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

phenomenal, brilliant and dedicated. The founder of World Pulse, Jensine Larsen, is one of the most inspirational women I've ever met. Her vision and dedication to World Pulse is what makes it so special.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

transform the lives of many more women.
