This training is helping women to empower economically, because it shapes women’s choices of occupations, jobs and places of work. We heartily want to thank Global Women’s Project for supporting this course and therefore realizing skill development for the participants.

The theme of Women’s day 2021 is: Women in leadership: achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world. This year’s International Women’s Day campaign has chosen the theme #ChooseToChallenge with the idea that a challenged world is an alert world and individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions. “We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality,” “We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.” WFN actively participated and coordinated in the concerned activities in the day.Leave a comment
