International Women’s Day | March 8th, 2022

In this story, the message comes from two women from Ghana and Congo. Two women that met each other in Greece, their new country.

Two wonderful, sunny struck women at the “Integration Learning Center” of SolidarityNow in Athens, that operates within the framework of HELIOS project, talk about what “woman” means to them and send their message, on the occasion of this year’s March 8th.

“A woman is also a mother. And the mother is the one who gives birth to both the man and the woman. She creates and raises a life. Women are strong, take care of and empower those around them. If I could say something to other women it would be to be strong and not be ashamed of their body, even if they are not fit or physically strong. I would also like to tell them out loud that they can achieve everything!”

The 27-year-old A., from Ghana, mother of one, has recently started joining the language courses held at the Center. However, she has already been distinguished for her excellent performance!

“We, women, are strong. We take care not only of our children but also of those around us. A woman can achieve everything if she believes in it. My dream now is to find a job and gain new experiences. I have patience and will. What I want is to become a positive role model for other women. I want to tell all women in the world, not to be afraid! “

The 25-year-old W. from the Democratic Republic of the Congo is a very diligent and prudent student full of dreams!
