Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

ACT6 Bridges for Women Society Volunteer

I volunteer as a member of the Board of Directors for Bridges for Women, a gutsty little non-profit that for more than 20 years has trained women who have been abused with life-skills, financial and employability skills. I make a difference every day by being involved. It's amazing we've survived given the funding cuts but we continue to make a difference in the lives of many.

We have an on-line training program which had to be temporarily shelved due to the cutbacks which is a crying shame. With our English, French and First Nations content we have the potential for unlimited out-reach beyond our border. We will also share our knowledge and expertise with any group wanting to start their own Bridges program. Our program is successful because it empowers women to start a new life and it works.

UPDATED: 20100430 EXCITING NEWS! We are taking the online off the shelf and back into production due to a small grant for seed money yay!

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
