Women organizations in Chipata district are currently doing various activities ahead of the International Women’s Day slated for tomorrow.
Provincial Gender and Child Development Coordinator Ariel Tembo says this year’s International Women’s Day will be unique because women will be showcasing what they are doing in their respective institutions.
Mr. Tembo says government is trying to shift the issue of matching, to showcasing what women are implementing.
He says this means that the match past will not take place tomorrow.
He says the wish of government is that every woman participates in such activities because the International Women’s Day is dedicated to them.
Mr. Tembo says this year’s theme, “Time is now, rural and urban activist, transforming women’s lives” is timely because more women are now engaged in programs that empower them in both rural and urban areas.
