    Greetings Mr. Bwanika,

    Thank you for taking the time to read the post regarding the “Women’s Day Boston.”
    As you may not be aware, March is a month dedicated for women. March 8th is International Women’s Day dedicated to celebrate women’s achievements throughout history and across nations. Therefore, the brilliant and courageous Ugandan Women in the Greater Boston and surrounding surbubs teamed together to formulate the “Ugandan Women’s Association International (UWAI). The official launch for UWAI is set for Sunday, March 8, 2015 at 4:00 pm to coincide with the official Women’s day. It is our belief that UWAI will address the prevailing women’s issues and try to either solve or alleviate some of the problems affecting women in our communities worldwide, including Uganda.

    I encourage you to invite all the women in your life, colleagues and friends to this commemorative event. There will be plenty of food, drinks, networking, learning and entertainment. The location is: Lexington Lodge of Elks, 959 Waltham St., Lexington, MA 02420. Please plan to be on time and we will start on time!

    “ Empowering women is not only a goal in itself. It is
    a condition for building better lives for everyone on
    the planet.”

    – UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, announcing the
    creation of the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality
    and the Empowerment of Women.

    Thank you Peace for enlightened Mr Bwanika… we shall always face ssuch negativity but only focus on our mission. I am part of the new organisation (UWAI)launching this sunday…so excited about the future of Ugandan women empowering each other in the diaspora and all.


    Peace and Hadijah,

    Well spoken. All my children are girls, and I have six of them. They are hard working and amazing women. Also I am surrounded by incredible women (friends, colleagues at work, sisters, aunts, nieces, cousins, etc ). You might be surprised that I understand women’s struggles more than you do. I also understand their health more than you do. I understand the women struggles exceptionally well. But all I’m saying is that the UWAI is funded and sponsored by Museveni. That’s all I’m saying. If UWAI had grass-root organization and support, plus leadership, I would have been a huge supporter. The way it is being funded, and supported, I’m very sorry, I cannot support and ask my girls and relatives to join. It would be a total waste of resources and time. Good luck with it.


    More power to the girl, more power to women. BEIJING Declaration
