International Women’s Day 2012
The UN theme for International Women’s Day 2012 is Empower Women – End Hunger and Poverty. In many countries, International Women’s Day is an occasion to honor and praise women for their accomplishments.
Today, many events are held by women’s groups around the world. 70% of those living in poverty are women and Oxfam encourages women to get together on IWD and fundraise to support Oxfam projects, which change the lives of women around the world.
Oxfam is an international confederation of 15 organizations working together in over 90 countries and with partners and allies around the world to find lasting solutions to poverty and injustice. They work directly with communities and they seek to influence the powerful to ensure that poor people can improve their lives and livelihoods and have a say in decisions that affect them.
Chicquero proudly supports this cause, you can make a difference right now.
