International Women's Day

International Women's Day

April 3, 2013

March 8 was International Women’s Day and most of the charities across the world denounced the situation of thousands of girls and women in countries such as Egypt, India, Peru, Uganda or Vietnam.

Appco Group España, as a strategic partner of many of these charities, has developed various awareness campaigns and fundraising for this cause. Studies have shown that millions of women around the world feel insecure in their day to day lives, and this is exactly what international agencies reported.

Moreover, women and girls are less likely to attend school than men. They have less access to credit, agricultural extension services and land ownership. They have little, if any, voice in decision-making. The disparity between what women do, and the resources they have, is staggering.
