We’re less than a week away from #GivingTuesday but I’m asking the tribe to show up before then! @ledbprojet’s primary goal right now is to raise awareness around the need for women and children’s shelters in Guinea.

Before we can do the work, we want to make sure everyone understands WHY the work matters. We all know what a powerful tool social media is when it comes to amplifying messages.

I’m asking my tribe to tell a friend to tell a friend and encourage them to join our communication list.

Our list-serve gives access to programming efforts, volunteer opportunities, and additional insight into the year ahead! Sign up, tell a friend to join, and have them tell a friend.

📸✍🏾 via @okayafrica: Somali-Canadian 🇸🇴 activist Ilwad Elman got her call to activism early. Her parents are both esteemed advocates for peace, her father Elman Ali Ahmed even earning the nickname “Somali father of peace.” But it was the work that he did to promote peace and reconciliation that led to his political assassination in 1996, while Ilwad, her mother and three sisters lived in asylum in Canada. Fearlessly, Ilwad’s mother Fartuun Adan returned to Mogadishu in 2006 to continue the work she had started with her husband, running the Elman Peace and Human Rights Center. Ilwad followed her mother’s lead in 2010, returning to Somalia during a time of conflict to help carry on her father’s legacy. As Director of Programs and Development, of the Elman Peace and Human Rights Center, @i_elman specializes in human rights, peace-building and countering violent extremism. Her many accomplishments include: co-founding the first rape crisis center for victims of sexual and gender based violence, developing programs to rehabilitate and disarm child soldiers, and creating inclusive spaces for women in peace building.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Via @theshetank - Even before Monica Geingos was the First Lady of Namibia 🇳🇦 she was named by Namibian newspaper The Villager as one of the twelve most influential people in the southern African country. Monica broke barriers as the first woman chairperson of any commercial bank in Namibia (EBank Namibia), but to her, the accomplishment was overshadowed by the climate in which it was earned. “The issue of being “first female” or “first black” is a bit of a poisoned chalice as it should not make us celebrate the few individuals who break barriers but rather question what these barriers are and focus on removing them so more women may enter,” she explained. Geingos became First Lady of Namibia in 2015 and stepped down from her role as Managing Director at Stimulus as well as her positions on the public and private sector boards on which she served. Her advice on success? “The most challenging part of success is managing it and the biggest thing that you need to manage is your ego because you will believe it when everybody starts telling you that you are great”—@OkayAfrica ✍🏾 [📸: @Google] ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

If you practice an art, be proud of it and make it proud of you.... It may break your heart, but it will fill your heart before it breaks it; it will make you a person in your own right.
