As I was about to summit my last assignment, I took a deep breath and uttered, ‘‘ah’ I made it to the
end, it is all over ( I had numerous challenges which I am still battling to resolve). Little did I know that
my internet service provider and my personal computer took the same deep breath and packed up for
days? Thank God the problem has been ratified.
I want to use this medium to say BIG THANKS to World Pulse team for drawing up this programme,
which has given voice to global grassroots community developers. My gratitude goes to Rachael and
Scott for their dedication to duty. And for giving me the opportunity to participate,which almost slipped
me by. Indeed, it is a privilege I will ever live to remember. Scott also guided me on how to reset my mail
box. His assistance to me can be likened with that of a mother’s support to her child facing some
challenges, ‘thank you’.
I congratulate all my fellow participants for your determination in spite odds, your inspiring stories,
challenges and your passion to make a change in your communities’ especially giving voice and hope to
the vulnerable. “Keep the little light on”, you are wonderful women, you inspired me . My appreciation
also goes to all my new friends especially those who took out time to read, comments on my
assignments, passion and revealed that I have writing skill I never took cognizance off. You made me feel
appreciated for once in my life. God bless you all. I’m proud and happy that my names May (Oluchukwu)
and SKILDEV are known globally today.
GOD BLESS WORLD PULSE SISTERS, GOD BLESS SKILDEV, GOD BLESS NIGERIA, GOD BLESS
AFRICA AND GOD BLESS OUR WORLD.
I just to remind us that in few days to come; being 17th of October, the World will be: standing up
against poverty to celebrate INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR POVERTY ERADICATION. SKILDEV suppose to
organize this year progamme in collaboration with United Nation Information Centre(UNIC) Lagos . This
was cancelled because of the recent bombing of UN head quarters in Abuja. Let there be peace in
My questions, can we eradicate poverty in the world?
How many of us are ready to stand up against poverty for ourselves, women and youth?
In which ways can we achieve these?
