A lot of women and girls are going through depression, becoming suicidal and even committing suicide as a result of pressure from all angles.
As we #PressforProgress, we cannot afford to leave these ones behind said: Patrick Newton Bondo
Each year around the world, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. Thousands of events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.
Celebrating women today, the world celebrates the contributions, challenges, and promises that are at top of the agenda. Since the founding of the Outreach Social Care Project, we have been supporting and improving women’s and girls’ health, education, food security, welfare, and capacity building, but there is still progress to be made.
We will continue working hand in hand with partners, donors and volunteers and the community at large to develop and expand major initiatives to prevent poverty, diseases, food shortage and help girls and women to reach their full potential in South Africa and Democratic Republic of Congo said Patrick Newton Bondo.
Happy International Women’s Day. Happy women’s month.
Together we are stronger, Always.
