Day 6 by Vanessa and Nomusa
Thursday, 5 March 2009The highlight was the event hosted by WAGGGS: ‘Who Cares? Girls’ perspective on equal sharing in context of HIV/AIDS’.
All five delegates spoke about their experience in their countries and how being a member of WAGGGS has empowered them to fight HIV and AIDS at home and worldwide.
We believe that we all did a great job showing our potential and that as young women we really can make a difference. We also challenged other young women to get involved and help fight HIV and AIDS in their communities.
Throughout the rest of the day we attended different sessions. Our evening ended by attending a screening of ‘A Powerful Noise’ a film that talks about how women and girls can and should be seen as powerful agents of change in their lives and communities. Overall it was a great day!
