I met Founder of W4 Lindsay in one of the Conference of Nobel Price Winner Mohammed Yunus in London and invited me to join her in Kingston College attending the Alumna gathering to cerebrate the Women's Day in 2008, all our discussions and conversations were about establishment of W4 and how I can be part of it, even if I'm coming from Africa(Tanzania). She wanted to reach almost every part of the world where they have initiatives and willingness to alliviate poverty and help girls and women. The whole W4 Management , Team and Donors work very hard in order to make this Institutions happened within short period of time. I met many people in different places in the world who had burning dreams and Vision but majority end up in vein. The Institution workedvery well and is well coordinated and organized by her communication channells with all field partners, in case information or data is needed. What amazed me is how new field partners are joining and they all have wonderful testimony of what they are doing in the locality. when we started I was thinking I am the only person from Africa but now we are many from Congo, Ghana, South Africa etc and I still believe the Team will reach every corner of this earth to support the initiatives of Girls and Women. Bravo W4 Management and her Stakeholders .
Lindsey used to shared her dreams and vision of creating such an organization while working with me with Grameen Bank, Bangladesh even couple of years before this wonderful organization got into a formal shape! I was optimistic about her dream of creating this type of org and eventually encouraged her for doing this. Fortunately, he invited me to be a part of this org. as a country coordinator and I gracefully grabbed this. Later I observed that this is growing faster than I imagined! And I hope that we would be able to create a poverty free world soon. Thanks Lindsey for being such a realistic visionary!!!!!!! Thanks Matin.
