Celebrating the Day of the Girl Child – Mwanamke na Uongozi

Ms Jokate Mwegelo - Guest of Honor

Wednesday, 11th October is the day the world celebrated the girl child. The gender inequality that has persisted over the ages back to the traditional society where many a girl has been denied rights to education, an opinion, subjected to female genital mutilation and the ostracism unmentioned yet experienced. Global Economic goal no. 5 says no to gender inequality a pivotal pillar the non governmental organisation Mwanamke na Uongozi ( Women in Leadership) is built upon.

Led by the resilient Ms Shamira Mshangama, the organisation chose to celebrate the day at Turiani Secondary School Magomeni. The children were vigilant in public speech under the theme ” Thamani ya Binti na Uongozi wa Maadili” which translates into ” the Worth of a Lady and Leadership with Ethics”. The event was colourful, vibrant and educative.
