On Friday 8th March, the women of Taroudannt got together to celebrate International Womenâs Day and to mark the achievements of women across the world. The day began with a party thrown at Centre Afaq for eighty-four women from both the Womenâs Group and the independent literacy association situated at the Centre. The party kicked off with a presentation from each organisation, followed by a speech on womenâs values and rights by a local womenâs group coordinator.
This was followed by a smaller (but equally lively) tea party for the twenty-one Womenâs Group members. The celebration consisted of tea, cakes and singing. Each woman was given a card by our Womenâs Group facilitators with an inspirational message to remember the day. With all of the chatter about inspirational women, everyone left feeling refreshed and empowered by the dayâs events! Stay tuned for more details of the amazing progress of the Womenâs Project.
