When I was first introduced to World Pulse ten years ago, I knew I had to be part of the organization. I loved the focus on helping raise the voices and stories of women on the platform. It also is a community space where women connect and share resources with each other. Elevating the voices of women to play an even larger role in creating solutions where they live, and on topics that impact them, is critical.

I loved how World Pulse did this by creating a safe, supportive platform for this to occur.

Being in this community of women, one cannot help being changed and inspired. Being a member of World Pulse, not only has helped me to connect with incredible women around the world, it has also given me more confidence in my own voice.

World Pulse is an amazing organization working at the unique intersection of digital inclusion and gender equity. While working at a global scale, they never forget or overlook the contribution of each individual member or her experience, and they center women in everything they do. We have been a proud and honored corporate funder of World Pulse for over 6 years, and we look forward to seeing how the organization continues to evolve and to make greater and greater impact in the world through their platform.

World Pulse reaches women around the world, connects them and makes an impact in each of their communities. They also help connect our corporate volunteers with the women activists.

Highly recommended, a proactive organization both for the community and the funders.

Every woman should be on the World Pulse platform. This is the only online platform where women have a safe space to speak up and not be shut down. Instead be greeted by loving and supportive peers from all over the world. I have been with this community for 6 months and it has changed my life, opening my eyes to the challenges women across the world face and yet so bravely drive change in their local communities despite the tremendous adversity they face. You will be motivated, educated and forever changed by the inspiring stories of these grass root leaders.

I have been involved with World Pulse for 8 years and I feel so fortunate to be in the company of the amazing women in this organization. World Pulse enables women around the globe to find their voices and advocate/activate change in their communities. By connecting with each other, we realize that we are not alone and are uplifted and empowered by the community. This results in so many marginalized people around the world becoming educated, learning how to support themselves and their families and finding the confidence to keep moving forward. There is no other digital platform in the world that is doing this.

Stories are powerful. They are agents of change. They can be bulwarks against dominant narratives. They bring to life things that could well be consigned to dry facts and figures in a database. More importantly, they inspire, motivate, encourage and transform. At World Pulse, stories of women and changemakers all over the world bring to the forefront glaring inquities that still exist, gender gaps that are holding back progress in large swathes of the globe. By providing a safe and immensely supportive platform for women globally, World Pulse creates real lasting change on the ground. The community of women is able to come together to learn and share and become agents of change in their own communities. The ripple effects of the World Pulse movement are hard to fathom, but real and substantial nonetheless.
I am proud to be part of this community and organization that makes the world a better, safer and more equalplace.

I believe deeply in the work World Pulse does. I'll never forget the time several years ago, when I met one of our change leaders, Nakinti Besumbu Nofuru, an ambassador for World Pulse in Cameroon. She was in the US on a state department sponsored connection and training tour and I had the opportunity to have dinner with her in Denver. From the moment I picked her up for dinner, I felt the energy and heartbeat of World Pulse. Nakinti is a journalist, passionate about her work in Cameroon, humble and has a heart that grows bigger to accommodate every individual and initiative she supports. She has raised money for girls scholarships, skills training for those that may not be able to/want to attend traditional school, helps women achieve financial independence and has helped train birth attendants in modern birthing techniques and hygiene. Those are just a few of her initiatives that she told me about over dinner. She does her work despite many challenges--a country in poverty, war, and sporadic internet. She told me she takes a bus 5 hours away when the internet is out to get service and keep moving on her work. She is generous of spirit and heart and often has upward of 10+ people living in her small home. Whatever she has, she shares. I left that dinner, inspired and grateful that such a great woman is part of World Pulse. And she is but one of many great women, who are working to make change happen in our world. World Pulse and our social platform allows thousands of women to chare their stories with each other and the world, engage with others like them and share resources. Today, these women leaders have impacted 17.8 million others through their change initiatives!

My name is Olutosin Oladosu Adebowale I am a Nigerian women's rights activist. I joined Worldpulse twelve years ago. It was a period in my life when I had lost everything, my voice, my self esteem and the will to carry on in life.

Worldpulse gave me the opportunities to raise my voice in a non judgemental community. There were kind sisters who were always commenting on my stories. They encouraged me and showed me enormous kindness and love.

Within two years on Worldpulse, my life began to pick up gradually. My voice, once again became my most priced possession. I was able to access opportunities to travel abroad to attend training and acquired knowledge. I founded organised supporting women. These past twelve years have been the best years of my life. Just because a woman decided to found a safe community where women can safely rebuild her life.

I was able to tap into my inner being to bring out new talents because Worldpulse sisters support my dreams.

I recommend Worldpulse for every woman who needs transformation in life.

World Pulse is a safe caring online space for women and girls. This is the organization that empowers me to be the best version of myself. What is unique and special about World Pulse is that there are women encouragers who intentionally help women feel seen, heard, and valued. The decision to listen to other women's journey and to uplift them in a caring way is a priceless wealth for women.

I am one of the thousands of women whose lives were transformed through the power of encouragement. From someone who battled with isolation and depression, silenced by a series of traumatic events, I found my voice on World Pulse. I learn to take braver steps to improve my life and to overcome feelings of shame and silence.

If an African proverb says, "It takes a village to raise a child". I'd say it takes a community of encouragers to empower a silenced woman/girl. It takes a community of encouragers to heal an abused woman/girl. I have seen it again and again on World Pulse!

Thousands of women turned their pain into purpose, their trauma into triumph, their baggage into breakthroughs, and their agonies into achievement. This is the power of women coming together. This is the power of World Pulse!

Don't take my word for it. Come and join this growing sisterhood to experience it yourselves! Post a story. LOG ON. RISE UP. Right now!

As a feminist media producer from the Pacific Island region there are moments of feeling disconnected from the global space of engagement but that's the difference I've found with World Pulse. Not only is it providing a safe space for media content and ideas but there are tangible efforts to engage and uplift voices from communities !
World Pulse is making the local Global as well as working hard to find ways to keep her community safe, heard and empowered !

When ever I think Inclusion, I think World Pulse. World Pulse is a pace setter in raising women's voices and I mean everyone woman in about 170 countries. Their willingness and eagerness to go above and beyond to make the space a safe, inclusive space for persons with disability not only gave me a yard stick in what I expect from other organisations when it comes to inclusiveness, it helped me get out of my comfort zone and let my voice thunder. This voice has continued to thunder because of World Pulse's positive impact and the amazing feeling of belonging to a loving,global sisterhood they stand for.
I am proud to belong, proud of the relationships I have built and I couldn't trade that for anything. I would without hesitation, recommend World Pulse to every woman looking for a non judgmental and safe space to grow.

All my life I have lived with the belief that I was crazy. I thought I was the only one to have the deep conviction that women are more than just wives and mothers. I only discovered world pulse a little over a year ago, but it has impacted me greatly.
Slowly, little by little the huge emptiness and despair I have carried my entire life is beginning to fill up. Discovering and connecting to women with passion, desire, and purpose has given me sanity and healing beyond words.
World Pulse is not only bringing women together to foster change, achieve their potentials and fulfil their life's purpose, but it is also providing them with healing so that they may help others heal.

I discovered World Pulse via Catchafire, a digital platform that connects volunteers with nonprofits. I have completed 20 projects for Catchafire, and World Pulse stands out as a favorite. I tend to volunteer for groups that promote gender equality and education of women.

Every person I worked with at World Pulse was passionate about the mission, and fully engaged with me as a volunteer. The stories I edited from women around the globe were powerful and impactful, and I will continue to be part of this amazing organization!

World Pulse is quite possibly the best organization I've ever joined. I don't mean this lightly. It literally changed my life. I now have my voice, my confidence and my vision clearly ahead of me, and what's more I have an amazing community of sisters that are close friends with me who support me and my mission, as well as working toward the collective goal of making this world a better, more equitable, peaceful, and joyful place for everyone. I would recommend World Pulse to anyone, and I do, whenever I can! Thank you World Pulse, and the World Pulse team, for all that you do, and all that you create on a daily basis. You are truly the change for so many of us. Please keep up the great work!

World Pulse has been instrumental in bringing women's voices from around the globe to my screen and to my heart. It has enlarged by understanding of issues facing women and ways in which grassroots leaders are creating change in their home communities. It also connects these leaders so they are stronger together - sharing best practices but also bolstering each other on the difficult journey toward equality and justice.

World Pulse’s mission speaks to my heart. I have traveled in developing nations and spoken with women who have few options for employment, little education, and struggle to support themselves and their families. I have been moved by their stories and have made it a personal mission to find ways to support these women. I know the power of women and believe in the work World Pulse is doing.

World Pulse provides a safe platform to amplify women's voices to further gender equity. We often take a certain level of respect and *relative* equity for granted in privileged settings in America because that is what we as American women experience and hear about, but reading the stories on World Pulse of domestic violence, rape, female genital mutilation, and the stark lack of opportunity offered to women has made me realize that women really do need a safe space to be heard, encouraged, and mobilized.

World Pulse fills a very unique gap for the women's empowerment movement in North America and globally. This is like a safe and secure "Facebook" for women to share their stories and connect." Many of the women are now advocates and leading changes in their villages and with their governments.
I have seen first hand how thousands of women have been helped by finding a safe and secure place to share their stories, make connections, and then be trained as digital leaders. This is a grassroots movement that supports over 60,000 in 190 countries. I am especially inspired to see how many women are making a difference in their communities to support the education of girls, economic empowerment and women's health issues.

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.
