International Women’s Day is celebrated each year on March 8th to recognize the social, economic , cultural and political achievements of women. The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is “Gender Equality today for a sustainable tomorrow.”
At Nova Pioneer, we are empowering our young women to bravely take up opportunities. We equip them with 21st Century skills that prepare them for the future. In them we see a generation of great Leaders who will shape the African century.
This Year as we celebrate the International Women’s Day, we are celebrating these brave young women within the Nova Pioneer community.
