International Women’s Day—March 8—is a day to celebrate the achievements of women in their struggle for equality, peace and development.
The theme this year is Be Bold For Change—take on purposeful action that will forge gender parity.
This International Women’s Day, join with PWS&D to enact change around the world. Projects in Malawi, Guatemala, Afghanistan, Ghana and Haiti are addressing the limitations that prevent women from building sustainable livelihoods and living healthy, productive lives.  Together, we can support women to achieve their full potential and improve the lives of those around them.
