On the side of women, builders of peace and hope



We celebrate International Women’s Day with a video directly from the Solidarity Teacher Training College in Yambio, in which young female students remind us how education is the foundation of gender equality. Education also means giving women the opportunity to be builders of their own future, to gain awareness and to acquire the tools necessary for their independence.


As also recalled during the Intranational Women’s Day Conference held on 6 March in Rome under the title “Women Leaders towards a brighter future, women are builders of peace and hope, natural promoters of change. This is why we must focus on women, continue to fight for their rights as human beings, fight for their voices to become protagonists and thus make the world more just and peaceful.

As Pope Francis recalled on the occasion of 8 March 2019: “Woman is the one who makes the world beautiful, who guards it and keeps it alive. She brings you the grace that makes things new, the embrace that includes, the courage to give oneself. Peace is woman“. (Pope Francis – 8 March 2019)
