HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY! Here's to women all over the world.
I have so far already met so many wonderful women here in Ghana . The photo is of some of the girls on a Sports and Literacy programme out in a rural community called Binaba. They are holding a letter they have written about their hopes for their future. They are beautiful, strong, and committed girls, full of potential, which the project aims to harness.
I was told that this year's theme for International Women's day is 'connection' (thanks Sam). It can be quite difficult knowing that the barriers these girls face to a positive and successful future are pretty high, but through connection with this project, with each other and with other women in their community and beyond, they might just find some way of overcoming some of those barriers and making some changes that lead to that brighter future. Let's do more than hope - let's do something to make a differenceJ.
