Viral Traffic Network to Support The Global Enrichment Foundation

My Support of The Global Enrichment Foundation

GEF Scholarship Program 300x77 Viral Traffic Network to Support The Global Enrichment Foundation

 

 

I was inspired to act last Friday as my wife and I were watching the NBC Today Show and Kate Snow’s interview with Amanda Lindhout the founder of The Global Enrichment Foundation (GEF). Amanda established the foundation  to support the women of Somalia and empower women worldwide through education. Hearing her story and understanding the desperate situation in Somalia left me with both an uneasy feeling and a heartfelt desire to find a creative way to make a real difference.

After doing further research over the weekend, I came up with an idea and I have made a decision to adopt GEF as the official non-profit of the Viral Traffic Network. Through a series of initiatives, we will provide contributions to The Somali Woman’s Scholarship program and other activities of The Global Enrichment Foundation. Details on the full scope of this commitment will be forthcoming in a future post. For now, I would invite you to watch this short video featuring Amanda Lindhout and also take a moment to visit their website.

Who is Amanda Lindhout?

In 2008 former freelance journalist Amanda Lindhout traveled to Somalia to research a story on the millions of people affected by two decades of war, drought and famine. Kidnapped by teenage criminals outside of the capital city, Mogadishu, Lindhout spent 15 months enduring unimaginable hardships as a hostage in one of the world’s poorest countries. Following her release in November 2009, she became an unlikely and passionate advocate for Somali women’s rights.

In 2008 former freelance journalist Amanda Lindhout traveled to Somalia to research a story on the millions of people affected by two decades of war, drought and famine. Kidnapped by teenage criminals outside of the capital city, Mogadishu, Lindhout spent 15 months enduring unimaginable hardships as a hostage in one of the world’s poorest countries. Following her release in November 2009, she became an unlikely and passionate advocate for Somali women’s rights.

Only four months after returning home, Lindhout founded the Global Enrichment Foundation and established the Somali Women’s Scholarship Program to ignite female leadership in Somalia through university education.  Her travels to over 50 countries – including Iraq and Afghanistan – have given Lindhout a unique and nuanced understanding of the consequences of the deprivations caused by war and the subsequent effects on women. She is passionate about sharing her message of forgiveness and about creating awareness of the opportunities each individual has to create sustainable change in the world. Lindhout studied Development Leadership at the Coady International Institute at St. Francis Xavier University.

My Purpose

This is a long-term commitment from me and the Viral Traffic Network. I plan on conducting a number of training events and other promotions to raise money for The Somali Women’s Scholarship Program. Their goal is to raise four-hundred $1,000 scholarships to educate 400 future leaders among young Somali women.  I am interested in hearing from you if you would like to help with this worthy cause. Please feel free to contact me directly or post a comment below this post.

I am here to help you succeed. Have a blessed day!
