As we reflect on the importance of the International Women’s Day on March 8, we don’t have to go through the stress of looking far for stories that demonstrate the inspiring work that women all over the world are doing to secure women’s rights and well-being, both for themselves and for generations to come. This year, the focus on Tender hearts foundation was on young underprivileged girls in the society.
Tender hearts foundation (THF) in collaboration with The Ideal Isoko woman(TIIW) celebrated the International Women’s Day 202I #IWD 2021, with the theme: Education, The beginning of your voice.
The global hashtag #choosetochallenge was employed to drive home the universal message of challenging gender bias and inequality, and stressing the need for education as a pathway for change/being a voice.
The founder of Tender hearts foundation used relatable stories of great women as notable inspiration to the young girls. Stories of how they impacted the world without regard to challenges, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political were used to inspire them. The young girls were charged to strive to live above mediocrity and choose to challenge the bad practice of segregating women to only the kitchen.
