Dear Friends and Partners,
Whilst we celebrate women in our everyday lives, yet on 8th March every year we get an opportunity to officially recognize the indefatigable efforts of women who are pushing for the global gender equality and justice in all norms of social aspects. It is a moment to celebrate the spirit of women who took the lead in impacting their families, communities, societies, countries and globally.
As we all focus on the call for action to “Press for Progress” towards gender parity, through motivation, thinking, actions and inclusiveness, the Mkapa Foundation is among the stakeholders in this movement.
We have strengthened health facilities and community systems in Tanzania, thus taking the pride of the positive impact on the lives of millions of women and young girls. We remain committed to ensure their better health and well-being.
I am delighted to celebrate the day, and I wish the very best to all women making efforts to change the world.
Dr. Ellen Mkondya-Senkoro
Chief Executive Officer
