The Who, What, Why, and When of We Advance.
Being Empowered is something we all want for ourselves. Mx. @MARIA_BELLO
2014, Los Angeles and Haiti
For us today, We Advance is excited to announce the launch of our new online learning site focused on crisis prevention, empowerment skills, and relief knowledge – www.weadvance.org.
As you know I am a co-founder of We Advance/Nap Vanse, and at the start we had a clinic in one of the worst areas. As the needs of Haiti and the people of Haiti shift, so too must the actions and output of We Advance. Not only have we learned an incredible amount, we are seeing the women of Port-au-Prince taking the initiative and wanting to create their own destinies. However, many lack some of the basic skills we take for granted.
I have hosted over 60 videos so far to really help make this content engaging and relevant. The content of the video library comes from our own experience on the ground and from local subject experts. The material is delivered by Haitians in both Creole and English, and can be seen through mobile platforms, desktop computers or projector screens.
After we feel that we have successfully got our mission in Haiti going, we will hopefully soon expand these lessons to a global audience, addressing similar needs all over the world as all women all over the world need help; as do their children and communities.
To accomplish our goals, we need to raise $200,000. We are raising the money in a variety of ways, including corporate sponsorship of video playlists, online donations made through our Crowdrise campaign, and self-funding. Attached is a proposal that explains our needs and outlines our goals in greater detail.
You can help us in a number of ways:
Please actively tell all your communities to go to our site – www.weadvance.org. Ask the ones who have access to the Internet or smart phones to hold mini gatherings to show off these videos at least once a week. If you are on social media or have family who are, please promote the Crowdrise campaign on Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook, Google +, your blogs … anywhere. We are using the hashtag #WeEducate to promote the campaign. Included in the bottom of this email are a few sample Tweets, which you can adopt for your social media accounts.
The more communities in Haiti we get using this and sharing, the more empowerment we are spreading. It is time for all of us to be empowered. We must become more independent and above all to collaborate and help one another, now more than ever.
