The African National Congress Womens League, under the leadership of our President, Angie Motshekga will provide a platform for all interested parties and women`s NGO`s to come together and discuss what actions we, as South African women can undertake to bring back the kidnapped Nigerian Schools girls.
The situation does seem extremely volatile so our efforts need to be measured and thought out as we in no way want to put the girls lives in danger. When a situation such as this one comes to light, where our girl children are in grave danger, this is the time when we need to unite behind a common goal and purpose. This issue goes beyond the bounds of political or religious affiliation and it is for this reason that we have opened up this platform for all organisations to join us.
"The kidnapping of these girls is a travesty of human rights and justice and as women of the African continent we need to come together and combine our efforts until these girls are home in the arms of their parents and loved ones." *Said Motshekga.
The ANCWL will also invite the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) to brief the meeting to ensure we are making our contribution using the most updated infcontribution.
Out of this joint meeting, the ANCWL may send a delegation of South African women to Nigeria if this is deemed necessary.
All are welcome to join the ANCWL
Date : Saturday 17th May 2014
