Educate!'s team in Makindye, Uganda shared this poem with their teammates on International Women's Day:
Today is a celebration for women all around the world;
Ladies like us who have dared to dream big, ever since we were little girls;
For the diversity and talents that lie with in our hearts;
For the courage and determination that prevents us falling apart.
We can raise families and build businesses and be proud of all we've achieved.
Where once over, visions of that scale could never have been believed;
Ladies, let us stand and be counted, smile at how far we have come;
And cherish every single day, as a daughter, wife, companion, or mum.
Don't let anybody tell you that there are set paths for you to follow;
A little girl with passion is an inspiring woman tomorrow.
So I celebrate us women and acknowledge the great things we all do.
Happy Women's Day Educate! Ladies.
