On Friday the 8th of March, International Women’s Day was celebrated in the NPA at Seisia community hall. It was a special day to acknowledge the achievements of NPA women. The theme for 2013 was; ‘ending violence against women’ and members from the five women’s action groups presented their vision for ending violence against women to participants. The presentations were the highlight of the day; there was singing, a powerful drama piece from Bamaga women’s group, and a presentation about the importance of peace from Umagico women’s group members.
NPA Family & Community Services, Women’s Shelter, Social Emotional Wellbeing Team, Healing Centre and Women’s Action group project officer would like to extend a warm thank you to all who supported and took part in this special day.
