‘I like helping other women to change their lives. I am what I am today because I was also helped by someone.’ - Ten questions for Nandawula Babra on how to #BeBoldForChange
Each year on the 8th of March, International Women’s Day encourages us all to forge a more gender inclusive, better working world.
Children on the Edge works with local partners to restore the ingredients of a full childhood to some of the most vulnerable children worldwide. A big part of this is working towards equality in opportunities and an end to discrimination for the women and girls we work with.
The theme for the 2017 International Women's Day is #BeBoldForChange and we are privileged to be partnering with a number of truly inspirational women, who use boldness and strength to bring about change for women and girls in their communities.
