Our Founder was hosted once again by Goretti of the epic show the Woman Experience, to discuss the rape epidemic in Cameroon.
Rape is fast becoming a daily occurrence, with another grueling case of incest followed by the murder of 13 year old Aisha by her own Father this 10/16/2020. This was closely followed by the gruelling rape of a 3 year old child in Yaoundé by unidentified men.
Do you want to invite our founder on your show to look at such pertinent topics and the devastating mental health consequences on all involved?

This year’s theme for World Mental Health Day is Mental Health For All: Greater Investment – Greater Access.
Our founder is a World Pulse Ambassador and she decided to do a project to collate video blurbs or images of our self care moments of choice…and got her son (our web developer) to do this video for the Ambassadors.
So, World Pulse Ambassadors decided to embark on greater investment in their mental health by making self-care a priority.
Watch some of our Ambassadors show in an imagine their self care of choice.
