Celebrate International Women's Day 2017!
International Women's Day is an opportunity to take a moment to celebrate and recognize the accomplishments of women all over the world. Every year on March 8th, we are invited to honor the strong and capable women we work alongside in Peru and Uganda. Every lady in our program is working towards creating a better life and future for herself, her family, and her community. We're inspired by them all year round, but today we're very excited to share some of their aspirations with you!
In honor of International Women’s Day, we’re highlighting some of the dreams for the future held by the women in our programs in Uganda and Peru. Everyone holds a special hope for their future, and in sharing the dreams of the women in our program with you, we hope that you can connect and relate with them even further.
