*HAPPY NEW YEAR* Lovely Ladies: You are all hearing it here first. We have been working diligently over the past few months in curating podcasts from WONDERFUL WOMEN all over the globe which all started right here with SHE PODCASTS (JESS/ELSIE: this is such a #dream). We’ve made two apps (one on Android and one on iOS) that will be ready to be beta-tested in a matter of days and have 300+ like-minded ladies who have already stepped forward in support. When we first connected with many of you, I was homeschooling my daughter (now in 4th grade) and writing all sorts of grants in hopes that we can create a suite of mobile apps that can reach as many women and girls in unserved/underserved regions of the globe who currently do not currently have access. We managed to come up with a cutting edge solution and were recently selected…….as one of 30 WINNERS from a pool of 5,000 applicants from 173 for the 2020 Islamic Development Bank | Transform Fund- Global Call for COVID Solutions. 7 Women Led Solutions from around the globe and The State of Women Podcast Network was one of them. So what does this mean? We are looking to collaborate with as many of you as possible (either by sharing your content on our new apps that will be scaled across the 57 Islamic nations to start with….. if you have special skills/talents – we would love to talk to you as we are seeking mentors/ anyone who may want to offer internships for young women and girls who would like to enter the industry). I will continue to post on this thread and have also created a GROUP in the GROUPS section for those of you who are serious about ” United Nations SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS- where we can dive DEEPER on SDG #1, #2, #4,#5, #10). Our new website will be ready soon. For those of you interested in seeing what we’ve already done you may check out http://www.thestateofwomen.com or http://www.thestateofwomen.org). Sending you ALL much love & Best Wishes for 2021. Hope to see you on the other side, ANU Bhardwaj
