Since its birth in the socialist movement, International Women's Day has grown to become a global day of recognition and celebration across developed and developing countries alike. For decades, IWD has grown from strength to strength annually. Yet despite all the efforts and growth made since the 1900's we are aware that many women worldwide still struggle and need our help and encouragement as they find themselves in unnavigable circumstances.
This year Chikumbuso women would like to, once again, visit the Prison in Lusaka to bring the women there sanitation packets, basins and soap. It is a time for the women of Chikumbuso to give back to those in need as well as a time of fellowship for the women detained behind bars.
Please help us to do this again this year with your donation to Global Giving. It is through your generosity that we can be your hands and feet in Lusaka Prison.
