Happy International Women’s Day to all the women who follow Duresi's Odyssey. You are amazing!

The theme for 2024 is “Invest in women - accelerate progress.”  I love this theme for many reasons.

 The main one is that, in a society like mine ( Melanesian Papua New Guinean), when you invest in a woman you’re investing in every family member that is in this woman’s sphere of influence.

For example, if a woman in my village is taught the importance of balanced meals and handwashing in her ‘mama group’, you know for a fact that each person in her household and family will receive that message and act on it through her teaching and influence.

The health benefits of this approach is phenomenal.

Also, women make up half of the population of the world.

We must ensure that to progress we need to invest in women: be it education, work opportunities, gender equality etc.

World problems need to be addressed with our perspective as well.

I’m sure you reading this can think of many examples demonstrating this theme.

Have a great day and stay safe.
