Rural women riding bicycles
AKWOS organized Women Bicycle ride competition. The theme was the Role of Sports to promote Women in Agriculture sector to build up their economical empowerment. It took place on 28th November 2013 in the Eastern province for 50 women in different agriculture cooperatives. This attracted about 3000 people both men and women who came to cheer up the women riding bicycles.
Women gave testimonies on how far they have gone to fight poverty and to become self-independent. They mentioned that sports has been a great value for their self-estim health, teamwork and promote unity and reconciliation.
The local leader expressed their gratitude to AKWOS for empowering women in rural areas and giving them support both technically, morally and physically.
