WOMEN'S DAY AT CHHOTA

Ranald Lopes

 

CHOTTAUDAIPUR, FEBRUARY 07, 2012: Connecting Women, Changing our World- This was the theme for our women's day celebration at Don Bosco Chhota. Four hundred and twenty one women from thirty two different villages converged for a day of fun, entertainment and learning. Though women's day is celebrated on March 08, LSK decided to organise this day. The day began with fete games which our simple tribal women played for the first time.

We then had the main programme with the Taluka Panchayat Head Mrs. Vanuben who shared her experience on bringing a change in our society. We also had Ms. Surekha Pednekar from DB DOM who came all the way to encourage and begin the process of forming a Women's Federation. The Rajpipla Skit group performed on women's issues, which was appreciated very much by the women. To add to the fun and enjoyment Fr. Roger our magician par excellence kept the simple women awestruck with his tricks.

As the day came to an end the women took back a lot of memories to share with their fellow-women back at home.
