Happy Women’s Day! Happy Women’s Day !
This year, we celedrate International Women’s Day with a global campaign #ChooseToChallenge.
This campaign reminds us that all together, and each of us, individually, we are responsible for our actions and our behaviour. Each individual has the responsability to question and challenge him(her)self the way we tend to build in the world of tomorrow. By making an effort, each of us, we have an opportunity to create a more inclusive place to live in.
Being an important participant in social integration, United Fund for Belgium has supported several charities which tend to help women facing difficult situations. We are very proud of it and we would like to present to you three of them.
Le Tournesol asbl is a non-profit organisation that takes care of women (with their children) who have experienced marital violence and who have found themselves in difficult situation, and who need psychological support as well as financial aid.
Le Souffle de Vie asbl is another non-profit organisation which accompanies pregnant women in the long term so they can make a decision about their pregnancy, and also, offers financial, legal, relational and medical help depending on their needs.
Vie Féminine Couvin asbl helps and represents women in difficulty. This non-profit organisation puts forward such values as solidarity, equal opportunity and social integration of all women without exception.
International Women’s Day reminds us of a long way that women worldwide have had to go through in the society and in the workplace, while non-profit organisations make us understand the scope of persisting inequalities. Men and women are different, mais each part plays a vital role in completing the puzzle.
In this symbolic day, let’s remain supportive with our associations, think equally and help United Fund for Belgium continue to support their principal mission.
There is no more beautiful way of assisting women to take an active part in building the world of tomorrow than involving them in the society from today.
