JPC commemorates International Women’s Day in Balikumbat

Posted in Promoting the Participation of Grassroots Women in Peace Building Processes in the Communities of Bali/Bawock and Balikumbat/Babmbalang.

8th of March was the turn of WPCs of all the 5 villages that make up Balikumbat Sub-Division together with the JPC team.

The event was a very exciting one, presided over by the Divisional Officer for Balikumbat Subdivision and comprised activities such as a march pass, choral singing, traditional dances andpresentation of sketches by women. The women defied the heavy down poor of rains that suddenly blessed the occasion.

The JPC Team together with the Women Peace Committees marched passed the Balikumbat grandstand in their colour uniform, and thereafter the other activities for the day continued. The WPC of Bacyit that equally carries out a common project (farming), and a small scale savings and loan scheme displayed some produce from their farm-vegetables as they marched past. It is worth mentioning the participation of the Program Manager of the Justice and Peace Commission of the Diocese of Bafoussam in both celebrations.
