Last March 8th, International Women’s Day, the Executive Secretary of the United Nations thought their UN SDG Action Campaign celebrated those who are fighting for gender equality around the world, which is one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The UN SDG Action Campaign marks Nosotras Women Connecting like one of the TOP TEN initiatives to be shared and replicated globally, next to projects in Mexico, India, Pakistan, Brazil, among others.
“These determined women and men are playing a key role locally and globally to empower women, give them access to public services — like health and education — , end violence discrimination based on gender, and eliminate the structural inequalities that women and girls have to deal with throughout their lives.”, says the program.
Nosotras Women Connecting was founded in 2016 and it is the only Costa Rican and Central American project featured by the UN.
“This recognition shows the importance of working on promoting leadership on girls and women as a tool to bring them together and response to the challenges we are facing as society”, said Marysela Zamora, Executive Director of Nosotras Women Connecting.
Nosotras Women Connecting will celebrate its 5th Edition in Kisumu, Kenya, inspiring girls and women in order for them to bring the solutions society need to be a more inclusive world.
