The eight session long Experiential Learning project under Children Program, and the final quarter of the Youth Program, both of which were based on the theme of women’s rights marked its closing event on March 5 by celebrating the International Women’s Day 2022 at the Amics Activity Centre. This closing was a collaboration event between Amics Social Week XI and Experiential Learning projects. The purpose of the event was to enable youth and children to present their learnings of the projects through different media among an audience to boost their public speaking and communication skills. The other and the main purpose was the celebration of International Women’s Day.
Women from Amics’ Women Literacy Project, who were invited as the main guests of the event, performed a beautiful song as an opening of the event.
This was followed by the youth’s presentation which consisted of a monologue, and a drama based on the current situation of Nepal such as the pandemic and lockdown, and women’s rights being violated within that context.
The EL children presented an act called “This We Do Not Understand” and recited three poems about women and their struggles before closing the event with a cultural dance.
Besides women from the WLP project, the children and youth’s parents were also invited to the event. It was interesting to see them share their opinions on women’s rights & violences during the Q&A session in the youth’s presentation. They were delighted to be a part of the event and were able to take away something. The event ended with a celebratory cake to mark the event and bond the families and beneficiaries with Amics del Nepal.
This event also marked the closing of the Children and Youth sessions for this year. The new sessions will start in April 2022 when the new academic year begins.
