Members of the Kigali City National Council for Women (CNF) have resolved to actively promote government development programmes, especially at the grassroots.
The women made the promise last week at the closure of the group’s annual general assembly. The body is constituted of women committees from the cell level in the City of Kigali.
They agreed to spearhead campaigns to improve health in their homes, fight Gender Based Violence, promote justice, participate in good governance as well as improve their own economic status.
Speaking to The New Times, CNF Coordinator in Kigali City, Alice Ababo, said they agreed to increase the momentum in the fight against malnutrition.
“We want to focus on improving the health of children and women, right from the grassroots level,” said Ababo.
The Minister of Gender and Family Promotion, Aloysia Inyumba, urged the group to use their leadership positions to enhance the welfare of the fellow women. She further asked them to seize the opportunity of the country’s good leadership that values women and utilise it to develop themselves.
