EFC LADIES MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Women’s day represents a key opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women while calling for greater equality particularly in the workplace.
This year’s theme was ‘Make It Happen’ which generally was encouraging effective action for advancing and recognizing women.
In Zambia particularly this year's theme read “EQUALITY FOR WOMEN IS PROGRESS FOR ALL”. This emphasized the achievements of the 2015 Millennium Development Goals.
A number of organisations arranged a number of programs to mark the event and this year, the EFC ladies made a donation to a chain of orphanages under the umbrella group of MY FATHERS HOUSE.
The ladies,led by EFC Marketing and Communications Manager, Kalumbu Nyikosa-Kearns donated a variety of items which included groceries, toiletries and food stuff, after which they spent some time interacting with the children and caretakers.
My father’s house is a privately run orphanage with 4 homes in Kalingalinga and 7 in Chongwe.
The homes are fully dependent on goodwill and donations for day to day operations.
