    I'm learning more about empowering women. I read an article a couple minutes ago on how women get empowered. One way that women get empowered is sports can make a difference, consisting of improving one's self esteem and self-control and so much more. I was looking for organizations that help women get empowered and this one caught my attention because it was what i was looking for. An organization that help empower women through sports. I honestly think that it is a wonderful thing that we can all be apart of.

    "The project will educate and empower 37 action teams and allow them to increase their capacity to make independent decisions and reduce vulnerability so as to produce self assertiveness and liberated women through sport. "

    The quote i chose here is basically introducing the project to the public and hopefully donator. This reminded me of the another article that i read a couple of minutes ago. You can see what i wrote by looking at my blog. The title of it is Learn 6.

    I think this is very nice. Hopefully this organization will get a lot of donations including yours. I donated already. It's for a good cause and it can make a difference. Can you ?

Mexico takes lead in launching national campaign against human trafficking - 0 views

    I'm learning about human trafficking right now, and in particular what im wondering about is: why would people do that? i researched my question online and this article caught my attention.
    "Traffickers seek out vulnerable victims and coerce them into situations of exploitation. One such example is Maria (not her real name), an 8-year old girl who was forcibly removed from her home in Guatemala by a child trafficking ring and taken to a brothel in Cancún two years ago. Maria is now staying in a shelter for victims of human trafficking in Mexico City"

    The quote i chose here is basically saying that the traffickers picked up an innocent 8 year old girl and turned her into a prostitute.

    People are disgusting and will do anything for money. They just go and pick up people and think they can do whatever they want with them. As if we were just livestock.

    I'm learning more about Women Empowerment right now, and in particular what I'm wondering about is: What do women have to empower?. I was researching this question online and this news item caught my attention because it talks about Mexico launching national campaign against human trafficking. I chose this item to read because I know that this situation is the top problem in the world. The title tells makes you think tons of things like for example that they want to end this problem. There are other countries who traffics a lot. "14 April 2010 - Mexico today took the lead in putting human trafficking on the global agenda by launching its own national version of the United Nations "Blue Heart" campaign against human trafficking." The quote I chose here is basically saying that they are come with an organization to deal with the Mexican Traffickers. They want to improve. It is almost like the United Nations in the USA. They want to make their own version. I think this is strong because it makes me wonder about how all the time the traffickers have to hide from the police. Their poor family are suffering. If they get caught they are in jail or they die. They get a lot of money. I want to know out of the entire world how many traffickers are in the world.
