– The meeting also discussed some of the challenges and achievements of the group in order to and how best to improve in the year 2015.

The association invited chairpersons, secretaries and treasurers from all the branches in Ibba, Ezo, Tombura, Nzara, and Yambio Counties.

The Chairlady, Grace William said that women from other associations were invited to share their views in the new drafted constitution review.

Grace said that joining the women’s association is important for women as it helps them become independent.

"I have notice one thing with most of the women, they feel shy to join other women not knowing this groups help you learn a lot of things that will allow them be independent without depending on anybody," Graced lamented.

"This is where we will be able to speak for ourselves as women, in groups we will ask for additional percentage with the men," she added.

She further urged the women to be participatory during the constitutional draft amendment.

The Association’s Consultant, Wilson Anguini said that the purpose of amending the draft constitution was to include relevant clauses for the progress of the association. 

Mr. Anguini urged participants to contribute effectively in the two days constitutional amendments.
