Dear Doreen,

Thank you for the pictures from the Women’s day that we had in Kampala. Just to reiterate a few points that were mentioned by some of the key speakers during that day:
- Time is running out. Whatever you do, do it right the first time, there may be no time for repetition.
- We should aim to make an impact as women. Be it by making careers enticing, education of the girl child and also have forums that can reach out to children.
-We should explore mentoring sessions not only by women but learning from men as well.
- Africa has so much potential. The women were urged to take something back to their countries from the sessions they will attend during AfWA and go and share with other women who were not there.

Overall, the women learnt that we should aim to continuously educate our people on issues to do with their life and more so Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH).
