February 28, 2012 – Reconciliation serves as a vital tool, to encourage the empowerment of rural women and help strengthen their role in society. By incorporating poor communities into existing social and political structures, rural women can reduce their dependency and manipulate opportunities to thrive in their respective societies. Reconciliation will certainly affect the living conditions and well-being of women and girls in these communities for the better. The ambitious goal of eradicating poverty urges us to assume a global perspective as global citizens in pursuit of this end. The speaker for the event introduced her practical experience with respect to existing projects to enlighten attendees on the subject matter.
