Africaniwa: She Chose to Challenge March 26

Posted on Updated on

This Friday 26th March at 6pm, in celebration of IWD2021, Africaniwa is proud to present: She Chose to Challenge, a Photo Exhibition.

Marking International Women’s Day, we are reminded that a challenged world is an alert world. And at a time where recent events call us to challenge masculine violence and empower women to #reclaimthestreets, we might have pondered, ‘what would it look like to have a world where women lived free from the patriarchy?’.

Over 30 years ago, one woman chose to make this a reality for the women who live in Umoja, a village where only women and children live. Meet Rebecca Lolosoli as we hear her story and mission in founding Umoja and what life is like living without men.

This month in celebration of IWD2021, Africaniwa is proud to present She Chose to Challenge, a Photo Exhibition.

Africaniwa are raising funds to help Umoja village after their main source of revenue, tourism, has been hampered by the pandemic. This will be used to buy basic provisions like food, chalk for classrooms and toys such as footballs for the children. Every little helps so please spare whatever you can give at PayPal to esenetekyerema@gmail.com. Thank you.

International Women’s Day for young women #ChooseToChallenge Friday 12 February

‘Who runs the world? GIRLS!’ – Beyoncé Knowles

Did you know that International Women’s Day is celebrated every year on 8th March? International Women’s Day is celebrated globally to remind us to come together to celebrate the achievements and voices of women and to empower women to keep fighting for equality. This year the theme is #ChooseToChallenge – a challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change.

In a world where we are experiencing unprecedented change, we want to give a space and voice for the next generation of women who will be shaping the post pandemic world. If you are a girl or young woman aged 8 – 18, we need your help to put together an event in Halifax for #IWD2021. We’re getting together on Friday 12th February at 3pm by Zoom and invite you to tell us the things that are most important to you and what you’d like to do to celebrate International Women’s Day 2021.

Check out internationalwomensday.com for some inspiration but remember to bring your own ideas too. Looking forward to seeing you there!
