However, the non-profit organization in thr recent past has been amplifying initiatives aimed at recognizing and celebrating the achievements of outstanding women and girls in different sectors in The Gambia
Speaking at the ceremony, Mama Fatoumatta Jallow- Tambajang, who represented the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Welfare, said the non-profit organisation not only serves as a platform that celebrates women but seeks to inspire young girls to realise that their dreams are valid and achievable and that it is just a matter of giving them the opportunity to see that their wins are celebrated.
The gathering, she added, shows how well Gambian women have contributed towards to society, social change and most importantly, the development of the country.
