Today, March 8, 2020, is International Women's Day and The Angaza Project is grateful to be part of the overall voice with so many other amazing organizations around the world that have the same heart! "Gender equality is essential for economies and communities to thrive, gender equality is not just a women's issue but a business issue, a gender equality world can be healthier and wealthier, an equal world is an enabled world, and we can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations, and celebrate women's achievements" (IWD, 2020). Here at The Angaza Project, we are doing just that! We have created various programs that provide girls and women
