What do you know about endometriosis? Have you got sisters, girlfriends or people who have to deal with it? How do you help these people overcome it, when possible?
It would be nice to hear from you!
The discussion is open also to people who don't know about the topic.. brainstorming is always much appreciated! 😊😊
The month of October is observed as breast cancer awareness month. During this month different activities are conducted worldwide to create awareness about this type of cancer affecting a large population of women. It tries to make people aware of the need for early detection of breast cancer, its treatment options and prevention methods that can help save lives. According to WHO, there are about 1.38 million new cases and 458000 deaths from breast cancer each year (IARC Globocan, 2008). Breast cancer is by far the most common cancer in women worldwide.
I made this video for a client yesterday but she allowed me to share on other platforms to spread. During current epidemic let's not forget about people suffering from other diseases and spread awareness about preventive measures.

Happy international #womenday!
As a Lithuanian 🇱🇹 woman working in The Netherlands 🇳🇱 for a great technology company Schuberg Philis, I feel extremely privileged.
I grew up with loving parents, never needed to worry about access to safe drinking water 💦 , electricity ⚡️, high quality education, warm house 🏠 and stable income 💰.
Yes! I do sometimes feel disadvantaged working in a masculine business world, but I find it too minor to talk about it today.
Instead I like to focus my effort to help truly disadvantaged single mothers in rural Uganda 🇺🇬 by working together with Integrated Villages NGO.
After I volunteered there in 2019, I could not resist in creating an opportunity for women to earn extra income.
If you too would like to contribute in funding entrepreneurship of women in rural Uganda, you can do so in a very simple way! Instead of giving a donation, you can purchase one of their products - 'bracelet with a story'.
I am so happy to hear that Esther Duflo, her husband Abhijit Banerjee and Michael Kremer were awarded with Economics Nobel prize for their great work in fighting poverty.
This award is even more special because Prof Duflo is only the 2nd woman and the youngest among both male and female winners.
Esther Duflo and Abhijit Banerjee are also the authors of the well recognized book “Poor Economics”, which served as a great guide and inspiration during my volunteering time in Uganda with women groups.
I would highly recommend to read the book for everyone who is interested to understand how poor think and what methods work.
