International Women's Day

FoCH was very proud to have a presence at the inaugural International Women's Day celebrations at the Zambian High Commission in London yesterday, Friday 8th March. The event was a tremendous success. It was very well organised and well attended, featuring stalls, speeches, inspirational stories, networking, and of course generous quantities of nshima, chicken and other wonderful Zambian foods. This was a very enriching event and particularly wonderful to see the strength, vibrancy and confidence of Zambian women of all ages, proudly taking their place in the world. Let world affairs rage all around, here at the Zambian High Commission it was solidarity and sisterhood: all one under the sun.
Thank you to the organisers for this valuable opportunity. They say that next year will be even better. Is that even possible?!

Meanwhile, in Zambia, our team, on their way back to Lusaka from Chitambo, was held up in Kabwe by a fantastic women's day parade through the city centre.
