So, in the act 6 part, I was teaching little kids especially the little girls about english. I think the thing that I already teach them will be very useful for them because english is an important subject if we want to be successful. Their value will increase since their knowledge is wider than the one that never had an actual english lesson. This way, they won't be treat as worthless person. All this time, people always think that women must only work at home. They will change the world…Continue

In sub - Sahara Africa, more than 550 million people that live less than $2 a day. Each day is a struggle because it does not earn enough for their daily needs.

I chose an article titled: "India: Transforming poor rural women into successful business managers". It describes the very successful project “Swaayam”. “Swaayam” is an UN Development Programme (UNDP)-IKEA Foundation pilot initiative. The goal of the programme is to empower women socially, economically and politically. To achieve this goal the women get trainings on financial literacy and business management. This strategy works so well that up until now there are 12,000 financially literate…Continue

Thinking about indigenous peoples, I always figured that they have a great community without violence and social and economic pressure. This week however I was made aware of the cruelties, women obviously have to endure in such communities. It almost recalls medieval practices: In some Asian Pacific communities, indigenous women have to fear to be accused of being a witch, which would implement torture. In some African countries, up to 100% of women have undergone female genital mutilation.…Continue

And this association gives starting aid for a life after violence and savageness.
But for me it was important to support an association which is around me so I can be sure that my donation came in. Some days ago I phoned with my parents and I told them about my thoughts…

Investigating about empowering women I found a lot of 'examples' around the world which affect physicality of women. For me it is really detesting and cruel to force women and unfortunately also children into sexual acts.
I am particularly saddened by the atrocities Haitian women often have to endure. After the earthquake in 2010, the situation for the inhabitants especially for women was inhumane and degrading. There was no security in the displacement camps. There was no food; there…
