Amen to this!!! We all have our stories & I believe there is enormous healing in the sharing of these stories. For a long time I didn't talk openly about the death of my mother. She died when I was 11 years old. People outside of my immediate family didn't speak of her death and I didn't want to make others feel uncomfortable by bringing it up. I didn't see the point in speaking about it and I felt that nobody would understand even if I did talk about it. Then when I was in my twenties a close friend asked me about Mam and he really wanted to know about her. He asked specific questions like "Do you miss her a lot?" and "In what ways are you like your mother?" I was slow to open up at first but I trusted him and suddenly the memories gushed out. Speaking about Mam and how much I missed her opened the floodgates. I couldn't believe the grief pouring out of me. It took a few years after that for me to finally start putting my memories on paper. I met other women whose mothers were no longer alive. Sharing our experiences and learning that I was not alone in the sorrow I continued to feel was life-changing for me. Writing my memoir, sharing my story in blog form and connecting with others who have experienced devastating loss have all been pathways to healing for me. And we find ourselves in the stories of others. So as Lidia Yuknavitch says "Sometimes telling the story is the thing that saves your life." It might also save someone else's. ❤

As a woman, what does empowerment mean to you? We believe empowerment comes from within and looks as unique as the person seeking it. For the women we work with in Western Rajasthan, feeling empowered can be as simple as having a consistent source of potable water for their families and a successful harvest. Every woman is in charge of their own unique journey. #WomenServe #RaiseHerVoice #EmpowerHer #EducateHer #TheFutureIsFemale #GenderEquity

My friend @tracethelines said it best, “We went to India, dug a hole and filled it with our tears.” 💦
💦
That hole was a Taanka, a rainwater harvesting well common to the Thar Desert region of Rajasthan, India. It can provide water security to an entire household and MOST IMPORTANTLY free women and girls from WALKING UP TO 10 HOURS A DAY FOR WATER in the blazing heat which allows girls to go to school and upward mobility for women. DOPE, RIGHT? I KNOW!!! 💦 💦
*Cause FYI, water scarcity and gender inequality in this community—social marginalization, forced child marriages, female infanticide, limited access to healthcare, purdah (veiled confinement), widespread illiteracy, and responsibility for a lion’s share of household responsibilities—makes progress towards empowerment for women and girls real challenging.* 💦 💦
Me and my homies from @wholefoods & @tradmedicinals w/ @womenserve, @tradmedicinalsfoundation and @wholeplanet had the great privilege to dig a taanka for and alongside Pushpa and her beautiful family. Shout out to the men in that family, Magharam, Mangilal, and Kaluram, for not only participating but working harder than I’ve ever seen anyone work AND letting us try to find our Taanka digging groove, then politely and quietly schooling us with their  techniques. 💦
💦

I learned new lessons about teamwork, family, the human spirit, how fundamentally we are all the same—you don’t need to speak the same language or understand someone’s life to connect with them on a very deep level. I’ll simply never be the same. 💦
💦

#taankatuesday should be a thing @tradmedicinalsfoundation @womenserve @tradmedicinals :) 💦

These smiling faces belong to the children in the villages where  #WomenServe works in Western Rajasthan. By focusing on helping women attain water security, we help free them and their daughters from walking up to 10 hours a day carrying water on their heads. This allows them to have time for the income generating and educational opportunities we offer. .

We are incredibly proud of RHV Chamber who has been invited as the feature performers for this World Vision launch event tonight. 🌎 Our girls are passionate about everything this initiative is working towards, which is girl empowerment and support, focusing particularly on young women in the Congo. We are thrilled to be a part of this wonderful cause!🎵👊👧🏼👧🏻👧🏿👧🏾👧🏽🙏 . . . #oakvillechoir  #weareoakvillechoir  #raisehervoice  #worldvision  #powerofher  #performance  #choir  #chamberchoir  #girlpower  #powerfulwomen  #girlchoir  #girlschoir 
Last month, #WomenServe had the pleasure of working with @wholefoods and @tradmedicinalsfoundation to host our annual Whole Foods Team Member Volunteer Trip. We had an amazing group this year who were able to help us plant trees on school campuses, build a school playground, build a handful of taankas for families in the area, and meet the community that we love. .

Globally, young girls are being married off at a rate of 33,000 girls per day. That is an astonishing 1,375 child brides PER HOUR. WomenServe works hard to facilitate girls education in the Indian state of Western Rajasthan, where the rate of child marriage ranges from 19-36% (according to The Times of India). When a girl child goes to school, she is 66% less likely to be married before she turns 18. Let’s continue to work together to create a world where no girl has to give up her childhood. .

Miss = to notice the absence or loss of something. I fell in 💕 with the girls I met in the schools of Western Rajasthan, India. Their energy, spirits, curiosity, joy and blossoming swagger in spite of what they must overcome culturally touched and inspired me in the depths of my soul. I’ve missed them since I left them.

I’m so deeply grateful to have been exposed to, and a tiny part of, the incredible water security and women’s empowerment work of the Revive! Project via @tradmedicinalsfoundation @WomenServe and @wholeplanet 🙏🏼 #thardesert #india #girlseducation #womenserve #raisehervoice #wpfindia #womenempowerment #incredibleindia

Girls can spend up to ten hours a day helping gather water for their families. The less time young girls have to walk with their mothers to gather water, the more time they have to go to school and earn an education. That’s why one of our missions in Western Rajasthan is to help families build water tanks so that their time can be spent on other things. #WaterIsLife

Last week on International Day of the Girl, Girl Pioneers celebrated the rights of girls around the world. The girls chanted “I am an educated girl and I am empowered” and Impact School Director Vilma challenged them to question what they can do to lift up the voices of girls who don't know their rights. Day of the Girl may be over, but we believe in supporting girls to reach their full potential and become leaders each and every day!⠀⠀

Last year I was a volunteer working predominantly with young Mexican girls. Over the summer I volunteered with Afghanistan women & their children. And this fall I'm working with Rohingya women & their children. On the wall inside the building where I volunteer is this beautiful mural. The children are babies up to six years old. Their mothers are learning English & the ways of life here in the USA. I don't know what these families have been through but I do know that we're all human & what we want more than anything is to be safe & for our loved ones to be safe. We are all familiar with fear and love. It's not riches these people are after, it is safety and freedom. I'm beyond grateful to have the opportunity to work with these children. A genuine smile, a listening ear, a gentle voice can be offered to anyone. For a few hours a week I get to offer these children my undivided attention and care. There ARE things we can do even when it feels like there's nothing. And it goes both ways. I feel better because I am DOING something. ❤

Check out this #FlashbackFriday: Pictured here is our founder, @niomanarissa, back in 2008 on one of her first trips to Rajasthan. Her inspiration for WomenServe came from her own childhood, where she did not receive an education due to her family’s gypsy lifestyle in Michigan. Nioma was quoted in North Bay Business Journal saying “...There are things I’ve seen that have drawn me to this work with women and girls, including my personal story of not having a formal education. So, I’ve been planning to do this work for a long time...All the girls I work with in Rajasthan are just like me. All the older women, that are my age, are illiterate and never went to school. Just making women feel important is the first step most people would not take, breaking down that barrier.”

“As our chais sent wisps of steam into the stuffy air of her hut, Jai Mata Ji described a day in her desert life. Before cooking for her family and tending her crops, she walks six miles to the only source of water in the area, carrying water back on her head. Throughout the rest of her day, she will repeat this journey multiple times in order to keep her children and livestock hydrated. In the harsh Thar Desert of Western Rajasthan, water is everything and Jai Mata Ji is her family’s only provider.”-Madeleine Smith, WomenServe volunteer 2016. .

Women are responsible for the household water supply in Western Rajasthan, and it can be a daunting task. That’s why we are committed to obtaining water security in the local supply chain communities where we work. (Pictured is a woman with her family in the harsh environment of the Thar Desert of Western Rajasthan)

Many women in Western and Central India can be seen wearing colorful veils over their faces. They are called purdahs, a name which also refers to a set of deeply significant religious rules. Purdah is derived from the Hindi word “parda,” literally meaning “curtain.” According to purdah, married women’s faces may not be seen by any men other than her husband. This traditionally includes her in-laws and all elders (male and female) in the family. It is very rare for a woman to lift her purdha in the presence of guests. We always feel incredibly honored when a woman is willing to reveal her face to us. What are your thoughts on purdahs? #WomenServe #RaiseHerVoice #EmpowHer #SM4NP #NGO #Rajasthan #EducateHer #TheFutureIsFemale

65% of girls in Rajasthan are married before they turn 18. Girls who marry young are ten times as likely to drop out of school. At WomenServe, keeping girls in school is one of our main goals. .

“I use my voice by sharing the importance of our voices, and by advocating for other people so we can create change because I cannot create change alone; it is always with the help of others. One of the changes that I would make is to put a female leader in power in my municipality who would give rights to women and ensure equality between men and women.” - Claudia, 8th-grader⠀

Donate today at http://bit.ly/amplify-her-voice and support an entire grade of young women to develop their voices and leadership at the Starfish Impact School next year.⠀ .⠀ “I use my voice by sharing the importance of our voices, and by advocating for other people so we can create change because I cannot create change alone; it is always with the help of others. One of the changes that I would make is to put a female leader in power in my municipality who would give rights to women and ensure equality between men and women.” - Claudia, 8th-grader⠀ .⠀ Tomorrow is the last day to give!
