Therefore, addressing women's needs is central to improving the quality of life for women, community and the future generations. " Recognizing the significant role of women in economic development is the smart thing to do and as well as being socially and morally right. We believe that achieving gender equality is imperative to develop a sustainable & just world for all." Its imperative to acknowledge the crucial role women play in the world economy.
On another note, "We believe that by building up a women's agency & knowledge, better synergies between gender equality & economic stability are realized, enabling her to generate a long term impact in both her private and public life."
Its equally important that women work together in unity building friendships and peace within one another.
