Review for World Pulse Voices, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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!

I love the mission and vision of World Pulse and am deeply proud to be a Board Member of this innovative and important organization! World Pulse uses a safe and secure social networking platform which connects tens of thousands of women worldwide, who share stories, resources, connections and courage. Each of them is making change happen in their communities and beyond and has a multiplier effect. I am humbled and awed at their voices, stories and courage—many of them risk their lives to make change happen. World Pulse and the amazing women leaders on our network are speeding up the pace of change to gender equity for women, providing strong role models and making the world a better place for all of us! They inspire me each and every day!
