The Have Pity and Compassion team joined their sisters across the world when they participated in International Women’s Day on March 8. In partnership with other local leaders, they organized a community event to raise awareness about women’s contributions both in and out of the home. Women’s work has too often been undervalued globally, so recognizing the value of women’s contribution is a crucial step towards gender equity. Four hundred and fifty women attended and heard this message. Recognizing that engaging the next generation of women is a key to social change, they organized information sessions with 120 school-aged girls, emphasizing governmental programs that provide them access to educational opportunities. They also organized a public discussion to educate women about opportunities to advance their well being in both their professional and personal lives.
