Hundreds of women and girls gathered on March 8 at Rove Police Grounds in Honiara to celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD), organized by the Solomon Islands’ Ministry of Women, Youth and Children Affairs. The theme of the event was ‘Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures, Involving, Participating, Empowering’.
As a project empowering young women in Honiara, Sistas Savve had been invited to take part in the events by setting up a Sistas Savve stall to showcase our products and raise awareness, taking part in the IWD march, and giving two participants the opportunity to give an awareness raising speech about women’s empowerment and Sistas Savve.
It was a truly great day, and a great experiemce for the Sistas Savve participants and staff!
