Salaam nyingi,

I intended to post this earlier today/this week, but the day/the week, has run away from me; yaani speedy. I want to let you know that I am attending CARE's One Night Event - A Powerful Noise, tonight.

It is a documentary that takes you inside the lives of three women to witness their daily challenges and their significant victories over poverty and oppression. Hanh is an HIV-positive widow in Vietnam. Nada, a survivor of the Bosnian war. And Jacqueline works the slums of Bamako, Mali. Three very different lives. Three vastly different worlds. But they share something in common: Power. These women are each overcoming gender barriers to rise up and claim a voice in their societies. Through their empowerment and ability to empower others, Hanh, Nada and Jacqueline are sparking remarkable changes. Fighting AIDS. Rebuilding communities. Educating girls.

Join us:



I'll be back to discuss the film.

Baadayes,

Mama Shujaa.
