Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #EmbraceEquity. International Women’s Day, 2023.Available at: International Women’s Day 2023 (internationalwomensday.com)
International Women’s Day is today, 9th March 2023! To mark the day, Teach2030 wanted to acknowledge, recognise and praise the hard work of female members of their community from across the world. For several weeks, our campaign was run to ‘send your image’ to Alex, Lead Education and Partnership Consultant, Priya, Education Sustainability Consultant, or Louise, Education and Community Engagement Lead. Guess what? They are all women on our fantastic team! We were delighted by the high number of replies and the reach of Teach2030 to such a variety of countries, including Nigeria, Jamaica, Turkey and Azerbaijan.
Here are just several of the images that feature on our social media today:
Fanny, our Malawi Teach2030 Ambassador has a message for the female teachers that she works with.
‘In a special way, this day also helps me celebrate other female teachers at my school, who ensures that teaching and learning is sustained at the institution. For instance, out of the five departments at the school four are headed by female teachers: Geography Department, Mrs Kelly Chikaoneka; Language Department, Mrs Loyce Sinoya; Special Education Department, Mrs Eluvy Kazako; and Home Economics Department, Mrs Ruth Ng’oma.
Also significant is that the school is headed by a female Principal, Sr Diana Malikebu.
Today, l celebrate you all the female teachers at my school (Stella Maris Secondary), as l cannot be able to mention each one of you although l will always also cherish a warm welcome that l had received from: Mrs Bandawe, Mrs Jane Chawinga, Mrs Fanny Mkandawire, Mrs Baluti, Miss Mambo, Mrs Mbendera, Mrs Maness Chola, Mrs Kaswaswa, Sr Delia Chikumbu, Sr Evalista Kaphwata, Sr Fanny Madise, Miss Kanada, Mrs Ng’oma, Mrs Moyo and Mrs Simwaka.‘
On this special day, when so many girls worldwide are still fighting to receive equal education to boys, we want to thank all the strong, empowered women who are educating and improving the lives of the students they teach.
We are proud of all our Teach2030 community and what they are achieving globally. It’s not too late to tag a teacher, justor comment with your nomination below!
