Our Final Report with an Eye on the Future

A huge THANK YOU to all our supporters over the years for contributing to the Voices of our Future project. With your support to the project, we have accomplished many of our targets, grown as an organization and are embarking on a transformational future.

Voices of Our Future has become known globally, reaching women from Kashmir to the Democratic of the Congo to Kenya and the US.  Women who graduate from this program consistently show results and impact, often experiencing large leaps in their leadership journey.  Our impact has been so great, in fact, that we’re expanding this training program and launching our Digital Changemaker Academy in early 2017.

Since we launched this project in 2010, there have been 3 of Voices of our Future cohorts with 170 graduates of the program. These incredible women and their achievements are detailed in our reports, which you can read on this site. We also invite you to visit and connect with these incredible change leaders directly.

As the Voices of our Future program has changed, we have decided to close this specific Global Giving project to create opportunity for highlighting some of the other projects that are in development. Voices of our Future will continue to be a pillar of the work that we are engaged in, and we look forward to sharing our newest ideas with you in the future.

We are so excited for the next evolution of our social networking platform, and warmly welcome you to stay connected with us online at, through Facebook and Twitter, or via email at

Exciting Updates!

“World Pulse have given us an opportunity of a lifetime. If in January this year someone asked me if I have a plan to change people's lives, I would have hesitated. But now I am ready to face so many things and make the much needed change. My life will never be the same again. I have met awesome people in this journey and made wonderful friends.”

What an exciting time for our World Pulse community!

Our change makers have just completed their 3 month journey in our intensive training program, Voices of Our Future.  They are already creating a ripple effect with their inspirational stories, and their digital action campaigns that they’ve created.  

28 women leaders from 20 countries (from the Democratic Republic of the Congo to Pakistan to Cameroon, Syria and to the US) came together to learn, support one another, and to challenge themselves and the world around them.   They were supported by 32 incredible mentors, who guided them every step of the way and were equally challenged and changed by the experience. 

These leaders’ visions for change include using digital media to help end child marriage practices, increasing human rights for widows and land rights for women, and training and empowering younger generations to rethink what is possible in their lives.  It has been both humbling and inspiring to be alongside these leaders throughout their journey.

If you are interested to learn more about these incredible leaders and want to hear their stories, in their own words, we invite you to browse through their virtual classroom

Coming up on our horizon is welcoming a large group of women to our next cycle of Intro to Digital Empowerment Training which is intended to help every woman connect to her own story and to other change makers. This 3-week online training is designed to provide women with the technical skills in using digital communication to increase personal impact in their communities.

Additionally, we are in the exciting process of filming new training videos that we’ll be releasing over the course of this next year and beyond. We believe that these training videos can be a new avenue to reach more women than ever. 

Thank you for reading this report and for your dedicated support to our work and the thousands of women leaders in the World Pulse community.

Voice of Our Future signature training launched!

Voices of Our Future
Voices of Our Future

It is an exciting week for World Pulse – we launched our improved signature training program Voices of Our Future!

We received over 90 applications from 36 countries. From this competitive pool, we selected 30 inspiring change-makers from 21 countries around the world to participate in this 8-week digital empowerment and leadership program. 

The spring 2016 class of Voices of Our Future are incredible leaders in their communities, and we are excited to see how this training will help them advance their vision and catalyze change across the world. For the next 8 weeks, we invite you to read their posts on World Pulse, learn more about their visions for change, and encourage them on their journey!

The Voices of Our Future training program is an opportunity for women to learn and work together in a more intimate environment to catalyze their vision and leadership. In addition to the safe, supportive and collaborative environment that the training fosters, each change leader is paired with a vision mentor and a listener. We believe that this well-rounded supportive environment is the key to greater impact.

Also, as we shared in our previous update, we offered a second round in the winter of our Intro to Digital Empowerment Training. The facilitated training for it completed top of 2016, but the materials are available for anyone who is interested to take it and go through the training on their own.

We are grateful for your reading this report and for your dedicated support to our work and the thousands of women leaders in the World Pulse community. We invite you to learn more about the changemakers’ visions for change and encourage them on their journey!
