Women's Day with the Somali Embassy

03-09-2014


The ACTION Support Centre was invited to give an address at a Somali Women’s Day event hosted by the Somali Embassy in South Africa.

It was a useful opportunity to strengthen relationships with the Embassy, and also enabled SASOWNET leaders to expand the network of contacts. The meeting was attended by Somali representatives in the Pan African Parliament and was televised on National Television in Somalia.

The ACTION Support Centre has been working closely with Somali women in the diaspora to establish the South African Somali Women’s Network. SASOWNET aims to amplify the voices of Somali women living in South Africa, to strengthen the connections between women in South Africa and across the Somali region and to ensure that the needs and aspirations of Somali women are part of policy making processes.

This event forms part of broader efforts to support SASOWNET as part of a contribution to the Somali Solidarity campaign.
