Celebrating Women’s March 3rd anniversary on the 29th January 2019 (1/3)

It is said “When broken hearted people agree, there is a change “ We the women of the North West Region of Cameroon who are currently being affected by conflict joined in celebrating the Women’s March 3rd anniversary.We had 3 main topics of discussion:            1.) Educating women on the various forms of Gender Based violence (presented by FONKEM EVELYN).     2.) How Women should care for themselves both physically and mentally in these crisis affected zones so that they stay safe  (presented by NGWA DAMARIS NGUM).            2.) How Women contribute in advocating for peace,Case Study; Cameroon ( presented by Mr AMANCHO JOEL).          In summary , the essence of our March was to discuss our challenges so that we put our heads together and find lasting solutions to our problems.  Evelyn Fonkem educated the women on safe platforms to talk about their          M   Challenges M     Like World Pulse, Sister Speaks Cameroon etc MHere is a summary of our anniversary celebration:https://medium.com/womens-march-global/in-conversation-with-womens-march...

Dear Ngwa,
You are simply spectacular. We are all closer to a peaceful world thanks to the work you are doing. This is the work that is needed. I love that you will fight to be at the table. It is voices like yours that have been missing.

In sisterhood,
Tam
