The theme chosen this year is ‘’BalanceforBetter” and which created a topic of discussion where we all discussed how we hope gender equality would look like in 10 year. H.E Frans Makken acknowledged the fact that the Embassy in Nairobi has embraced women empowerment and more significantly is the visibility of the many women working at the mission.

Numerous calls were made to continue empowering the girl child to create a more balanced society.

“The future is exciting. Let's build a gender-balanced world.

Everyone has a part to play - all the time, everywhere.” IWD 2019
