International Women’s Day

Story of the day

Our annual celebration of International Women’s Day was different this year. Together with many CBO’s and other organisations working along the border we organised a Street Market where all groups could present themselves and sell their products. 

It was a very lively day with some fun activities and entertainment in the evening. There are many people to thank for this day.

As IWD was soon followed by the spread of Corona Virus, reporting became less important. 

Luckily we got a short video, shot and edit by our friend Jim, so all of you can see what we were up to
