Celebrating women

On the International Women’s Day, let’s make a commitment that we will educate girls in every corner of the country. We will empower women through education. Say no to violence and oppression, women are subjected to, in this part of the world. We will not tolerate rape, harassment and sexual violence that scar us. Though, several faces are shinning but there is still a long way to go.
