President's Note - June 2017
There is a well-known African saying- “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” AFETT has inspired women to come together for the greater good and has made significant strides over the years. This year AFETT celebrates its fifteenth anniversary and we owe our gratitude to those who have served before us and for the members who have selflessly volunteered for projects and supported our work. “Our work” signifies a coming together for a cause that is collectively bigger than we are individually. We are making a difference in women’s and girls’ lives.
As we continue to work to accomplish our goals, we are reminded of our strength as a team with a myriad of skills and recognise an opportunity for a stronger sisterhood. As women wearing various hats, we desire a space where we all feel welcomed, where we can chat, form friendships, and also have those important discussions on topics such as child marriage, and rally for change in our society.
I invite you to get on board, get involved. Our journey in life is much more rewarding when we travel together. AFETT can make a difference in your life too.
