The Journey Begins:

Attending the Women Deliver Conference had been a long-awaited dream for me. As an advocate of SRHR ,this event held immense value and significance.

The Journey Begins:

Departing from Hawassa, I embarked on a trip to Addis Ababa. Spending a night there allowed me to rejuvenate before heading to the airport the next day.

A Circle of Young Leaders:

As our flights approached, The young leaders WhatsApp group buzzed with excitement. Messages about being at the bole international airport boarding gate started pouring in. Each text brought us closer together in anticipation of the conference. A magical moment occurred as we spotted each other one by one. Gradually, a gathering of young leaders formed, and we found ourselves in a big circle of passionate advocates for change right there in the airport. We greeted each other , had lots of ” Ahaaa ” moments laughed giggled and it was awesome. I was the least tired one among the group as I was based in Addis abeba already , but some of them were in a 16 hrs flight 😬. Nonethless It was heartwarming to connect with like-minded individuals who shared the same passion and dedication.

Embracing Kigali:

Stepping foot in Kigali, I was greeted by the pleasant weather that complemented the high spirits surrounding the conference. After picking up my badge, I proceeded to my hotel to rest and gather my energy for the days ahead. The atmosphere in Kigali was electric, filled with enthusiastic participants from all over the world. It was inspiring to witness the coming together of minds, experiences, and ideas with the common goal of promoting women’s rights.

From the anticipation before the event to the connections made at the airport, and finally, immersing myself in the vibrant ambiance of Kigali, every aspect left an indelible mark on me.

Women Deliver has truly created a platform that unites advocates, amplifies voices, and propels change. I am grateful for the opportunity and look forward to continuing the journey towards gender equality and empowerment.
