"It’s a simple idea really. There are over a billion women living in extreme poverty and there are millions of women on the internet. By connecting women who care with women in need, we can transform the
world together."

THE HEART OF WOMEN FOR A CHANGE.

This is where women from all over the world come to inspire and share together, focusing on developing positive solutions to women’s issues. Where we work together to further the WFAC vision.

“A balanced world where women are empowered, and where all women are treated equally, positively, and with respect.”

THIS IS WOMEN FOR A CHANGE

  • Women for a Change is about changing world values through transcending cultural, social, religious, political & economic barriers.
  • It’s about new ways of working - sharing knowledge, experience and skills.
  • It’s about new ways of finding solutions – in an inspiring, uplifting space.

The first stage is to connect, so that together we can support and empower.

THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO BE INVOLVED

  • You might like to start by joining some of our social groups and getting to know the women here.
  • As soon as you feel inspired, there are many projects you can become involved in.

Women for a Change is about Love in Action.

I have just returned from a 2 week visit to Israel, Palestine and Jordan where I travelled around talking to many people about life in the area and making short videos.



One of the most beautiful people I met was Tzippi Keller, 76 year old mother of Irit, our Israel Women for a Change co-ordinator.

At the age of 16, Tzippi joined the Israel Resistance movement, Hagannah, where she was responsible for a secret arms cache which was used to to defend the kibbutz in which she lived.

In the first of several short video clips, Tzippe talks about the destruction of her family in Auschwitz and her view on life.

Israel and Palestine The solution described by Obama to end the conflict in the Middle East is the coexistence of Israel with a Palestinian state, where two people can live in peace and security.

Barack Obama wants "new start"
"This personal search results with all the patience that this task requires," Obama promised, he called all parties to "fulfill the responsibilities" and end the conflict
God help Obama by giving you light
Namaste

My dear friends, please send messages to the persons, which I have mentioned in my earlier post. Your messages will be of great help for me and my family. But I hope you will forgive me if I am making myself burden on you. I hope you will forgive me. I shall repeat my prayers that may God the Great give you all the happiness in this life and in the life hereafter if there is any.

My dear friend Susan Shewan , a lot of thanks for your quick response. Actually yesterday I was in great distress. I do not want to give more pain to Fatima as she has already spent her life in great pain. I shall continue working in the ERU despite all odds. I think I can use the word friend for you as you are my real friends. Friend can be used in a wider meaning. The word friend can be used for mother, sister and all other relatives. You are my true friends.
But at the same I shall be needing your good wishes and prayers. I want that the people may know that you have good wishes for me. Through you I want to strengthen my position. I am telling you the truth. I am sorry, but I have no other option. Still I am needing your blessings and good wishes. I shall be praying for your peace and happiness. May God the Great give you all the happiness in this life and in the life hereafter if there is any.

Dear Muhammad,
I believe you have made the right decision in perservering in the job with the emergency response unit. It is difficult, I am sure. But the best thing to provide an income for you and your family and to give Fatima one less thing to worry about and cause her concern at this time. It can also be of benefit to you in the future as you are making great connection with lots of people and it could provide you with future opportunities. I send blessing everyday to you and your family and pray that peace will soon come. I always try and remember your courage and perserverence when I think about the problems I have and it gives me courage and hope to go on.
Love and Blessings to you, Fatima and the children.

Just keep one thing in mind that your prayers and good wishes have been working for me. May God the Great give you all the happiness in this life and in the life hereafter if there is any. Now I am happy as yesterday you have given me the right advice. I think there is light at the end of the tunnel of darkness.

My dear friends, first of all I want to say salaam to all of you. Your good wishes and prayers are really working for me. Yesterday I was in great distress as I have been feeling uneasiness. At a point I even decided to leave my present job. But after getting advice from you I have decided to continue to my job despite all odds. I have decided that I shall continue working in the Emergency Response Unit established by the government of Pakistan. Today I have met several people including some kind ladies. Now I am sharing their names and email addresses with you with a request just write a few lines to them telling that I am your friend. It will be helpful for me if you can send a few lines to them. In this way I shall be able to get support here. I think you will not mind that I am bothering you again and again. The following are their names and email addresses.

Fotini Rantsiou
Senior Humanitarian Affairs Officer at UN Office Affairs Office
rantsiou@un.org

Isabelle Rivolet
Senior officer at UNHCR
rivolet@unhcr.org
Sarita Neupane

sneupane@unicef.org

Dima Hatuqa
Dima.haquta@wfp.org

Graig Williams
williamscv@un.org

Asiya Ashraf Chaudhry

Just tell them that one of your friends Muhammad Khurshid is working in the Emergency Response Unit and he is needing moral help. Just tell them that I am your friend. Your few words in my support will certainly for me. Whenever you find the time do it and please forgive me for creating problems for you again and again. I shall be praying for your peace and happiness. Fotini Rantsiou is really a nice and kind lady. I am hopeful she will certainly respond to your message. May God the Great give you all the happiness in this life and in the life hereafter if there is any. Please accept thanks and regard from Fatima and my children.

Dearest Muhammad
One day I hope that all will find peace in their hearts and there will be no more pain - and no more violence. The joy of the internet is that we are able to connect with heart-centred people and it allows us to meet with wonderful people like you and Fatima. One day we will meet in the real world - what a day that will be for celebrations.
With love, hugs and blessings to you both
Janey :)

How nice you people are? My dear friend Antonia, a lot of thanks for your kindness. We i.e. me and Fatima have married in 1985. I have spent almost my whole life with Fatima. I know her very well. A little noise is also a source of disturbance for her. She have been shedding tears since her birth, I think. At the moment she is really feeling pain in the heart. I am worried about her health. Though I hope that God the Great will not give me more pains. I have lost interest in life after the death of my dear brother Dr. Pervez Khan, but that was Fatima, who has given me a new hope. There was a time when I lost interest in the world, but she persuaded me to join the normal life. If I am alive this is just because of Fatima. I have great love with her. Now I have four beautiful children. Now I want to live for them. A lot of thanks for your good wishes and prayers. I shall be praying for your peace and happiness. May God the Great give you all the happiness in this life and in the life hereafter if there is any.

Dear Muhammad,
You can be sure that all people reading about you and Fatima will pray for you.
IPeace and WFAC attract mostly people who feel with others in pain.
I believe that living in fear makes your heart ache even if there is no fisical problem.
