Mural: International Women’s Day

As part of a Canada World Youth project in Benin, our group decided to help celebrate International Women’s Day, March 8th by organizing a games day, march and painted a mural on the side of the village health centre (with permission). I’d organized and prepped the site during the week prior so that the day of we could have the young girls add their handprints to the mural.

Taken from a lovely speech written by Taous, one of the volunteers, the quote says “Women of Kpovie, you give life, celebrate your own, your story is in your hands.”
