International Women’s Day 2017 – English Declamation Contest

International Women’s Day 2017 was celebrated across the world to acknowledge the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. TCS Youth Programmes organised English Declamation Contests for Class 6 – O Level students across the Central Region schools. The theme for the competition was based on this year’s global theme for the day ‘Be Bold for Change.’

Students shared their views about gender bias and inequality, violence against women, women’s rights and their advancement. The activity encouraged the students to recognise women as an important part of the society and the winners at each level were awarded certificates as acknowledgement.
