Happy International Women’s Day!

March 8, 2010

Here at SAPP, we’re celebrating International Women’s Day (which gets a lot more press here in Canada than I remember seeing in the U.S.):

International Women’s Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.

The UN has designated the theme for this year’s IWD as “Equal rights, equal opportunities: progress for all”.

It is our hope that philanthropy from the South Asian community across North America will help to create more opportunities for celebration of women’s achievements, as well as uplift women who are living in poverty or displaced from their homes because of war or natural disasters.

Many thanks to Dien at Asian American Giving for highlighting our work today alongside two other outstanding Asian American women in philanthropy!
