On March 8, we celebrate an important day—International Women’s Day. On this day, we commemorate the achievements women have made, raise awareness about women’s equality and continue to advocate for gender fairness.

This year the International Women’s Day theme is #ChooseToChallenge. When we choose to challenge the world by calling out gender discrepancies, we spark change and bring attention to issues that hinder an inclusive world.

PWS&D is committed to­­­­­ world where gender equality exists. Working in AfghanistanMalawiIndiaGuatemalaNicaragua and Ghana, we strive to support vulnerable girls and women to live a life where they can meet their ambitions and do so healthily and happily.
