Many of us women wish to change the world. We wake up every morning and wish things were better. Days, weeks, months and years pass but the wishing continues. We encounter women living in violence, we encounter women giving birth in pathetic environment and children dying and we still feel hopeless and wish someone does something about it.
We see women struggle accessing some services like financial, internet information because they are digital illiterate, but we wish someone will one day come and train them. We wish government institution could get more involved but we wait and wait, and when it doesn’t happen we instead start complaining.
We work in hostile environments, some Bosses take advantage of the girls and offer them promotions in exchange of their bodies, we watch helplessly and wish some humanitarian organization will hear about it and intervene
We sit looking at the GLASS in front of us,we live in the illusion,thinking that THE GLASS is protecting us but in reality we are clearly seeing the other side and we can actually break it ,get through and take action.
I broke the glass and quit my good job in cooperate world to become a social entrepreneur, to address financial and digital literacy challenges and expose women and youths to greater possibilities of economic development. People called me crazy but yes I BROKE THE GLASS. Am determined to fight on till I see change on those things that I wished happened or changed when I was behind THE GLASS.
