– Celebration of women should not be limited to a one day affair but women should be celebrated all year round recognising their role as mother, wife, helpmate, administrator and manager.A

– A woman must be able to help herself and take care of herself through adequate rest, recreational and leisure activities.

– A healthy empowered woman will be a good partner for a responsible man & together they will build a healthy family, a vibrant community and a productive nation.

To achieve their full potential in social, economic and political development, women should put Christ at the center of their life through the maxim “women for Christ, women for Development”.
