NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR WOMEN ACTION IN DEVELOPMENT this year 2019 joins the rest of the world to commemorate International Women’s Day (IWD) 2019. This day is held on March 8th every year. It's a day when we celebrate the amazing social, cultural, economic and political achievements of women - while also campaigning for greater progress towards gender equality.
The theme for International Women's Day (8 March) this year is “Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change”, which puts innovation by women and girls, for women and girls, at the heart of efforts to achieve gender equality.
In partnership with local women groups and local leaders NAWAD has organized for a community women dialogue in the Western Uganda basically to discuss plans to strengthen the eco feminist movement among NAWAD women groups. The dialogue is also intended to demonstrate how valuable women are to the economy.
We will spend the whole afternoon reflecting on women's issues and most importantly the value of women coming together and working together for development.
Women will take this opportunity also to discuss on ways of becoming more innovating as means to fight poverty in their communities.
