International Women's Day 2019 is about #balanceforbetter.
The celebration of women reflects how far we have come and how far we still have to go to truly achieve gender equality.Our foundation encourages the empowerment of women, particularly in the areas of maternal health.
In Sierra Leone, antenatal, delivery, and postnatal experiences for women often take place in rural communities rather than in healthcare facilities. It is very important the strategies we use to improve maternal and child health involve every part of our communities.
This month we had the absolute pleasure of speaking at Willoughby Girls High School, Cherrybrook Technology High School and Ascham School, Gartner and Kiwanis International for their International Women's Day events.
Continuing to speak about women's issues is critical because everything our foundation does looks at the health and wellbeing of women and children that include places like Sierra Leone. Women's issues are prevalent worldwide, so we believe that when we stand for ourselves we stand for all women. #genderequality
