So, here’s our challenge to you – what can you do to ensure that the awareness raised as well as the interest and motivation generated on International Women’s Day turn into daily actions throughout the year?
As the world celebrates this year’s International Women’s Day -- whose theme is “Think equal, build smart, innovate for change” -- all stakeholders must resolve to work to find innovative ways to engage more men and young boys in the push to advance gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
It’s not a surprise that when women work together, they achieve remarkable results. Women understand other women’s paths balancing personal and professional life, accessing resources, challenging traditional norms, and fighting to push more women into leadership positions.
WEI (Women’s Economic Imperative) est fier de s’associer à W4 (Women’s WorldWide Web) pour soutenir les jeunes femmes du Burundi, les aidant à s’assurer des emplois sûrs et décents dans le secteur formel et à développer éventuellement leurs propres entreprises agro-alimentaires favorisant la sécurité alimentaire au sein de leurs communautés.
