RWA Lesotho: HRWA Women Month

August has been identified as a month to celebrate African women achievements in all spheres of life.  It is in this month that we see and hear about how strong and powerful black women are. It is our great wish as HRWA that women are celebrated everyday not seasonally  and we pride ourselves that our members took part in different celebrations our country had. For the past 8 years of our existence in rural communities as HRWA we managed to penetrate  in all 10 districts.

RWA BB has been part of the opening ceremony of women’s month. It was in this gathering that the GBV coordinator has made awareness about patriarchal norms that perpetuate and fuel GBV and limit women\’s capabilities.
