UN

International Women’s Day

Imagine there’s one factor without which development is not possible. Without it, there can be no economic development, no human rights, no peace and security.

Well, there actually is such a factor. And that factor is women. 

It’s not surprising then, that the UN saw fit to have a whole day dedicated each year to women and their crucial role in making the world a better place. 

Making noise for the MDGs!

Did you join the rest of the world to Stand Up against poverty this year? From September 17-19, people all over the world shouted out a single message: “We will not stay silent in the face of poverty!”
