It has been a year filled with many achievements and many
events locally, nationally and internationally. Some of
them brought joy to our hearts and others left us sad
Let's all try to pause for a second and comprehend the
value of life, peace, family and friends.
Let's remember the good days, the cheerful moments and
send a message of support to those in need of such a touch.
Let's use the opportunity to act kindly towards each other
no matter who is the other.
Let's continue our purpose driven life and receive the
new year with optimism and hope.
It has been a pleasure working with you in the past 12
month and looking forward to continue the journey together.
Peace to you and to the world

stakes for women are high. Women want a world in which
inequality based on gender, class, caste and ethnicity
is absent from every country and from the relationships
among countries. Women want a world where fulfilment of
basic needs becomes basic rights and where poverty and
all forms of violence are eliminated. Where women's unpaid
work of nurturing, caring and weaving the fabric of community
will be valued and shared equally by men. Where progress
for women is recognised as progress for all. Creating
this world is truly the challenge of the 21st Century..
