I believe in empowering women. By empowering a woman, we are empowering her family. Economically empowered women are more confident and have a say in the household matters; they can participate in the decisions concerning their children and their family. They will educate their children and hence contribute to the nation's development. Economically empowered women also have less risk to be the victim of gender-based violence.
As a leader and a role model, I encourage women to be assertive, to be confident and to dare to be different. I dream of a Mauritius where there are equal opportunities for everyone, where women are empowered and are given the opportunities they deserve and where they have a say in all matters concerning the country#WealthofWomen
