International Women’s Day 2012

GPI will be celebrating the 101st International Women’s Day with two events.

BLOG FOR IWD

On the 8th of March, gpibenin will for the first time ‘Blog for International Women’s Day,’ hosted by Gender Across Borders and CARE. The theme for the Third Annual Blog for International Women’s Day, a day where bloggers, writers, and humanitarian organizations are asked to write on certain issues is “Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures

Points to be addressed this year are

  • How can we, as a culture and as members of the global community, involve, educate, and inspire girls in a positive way?
  • Describe a particular organization, person, group or moment in history that helped to inspire a positive future and impact the minds and aspirations for girls.

Throughout the day of March 8, there will be a live blog of responses on GenderAcrossBorders.com. gpibenin will also feature responses from GPI girls.

PARENT-DAUGHTER FORUM

On the 10th of March, GPI Benin has organised a parent-daughter forum. The 2012 theme is “the role of parents in building the future of the girl child.” This annual forum works to bridge communication gaps between GPI girls and their parents, by making both parties express themselves in a moderated environment.

The venue for this year’s event is the GPI hall (67 New Road off Amadasun Street, Ugbighoko, Benin City, Nigeria) and the programme is scheduled for 9am. Parents and their daughters are expected to be in attendance.
