The European Union Ambassador to The Gambia, Attila Lajos, has recently said International Women’s Day is celebrated on 8 March each year, but women should be celebrated every day.
Ambassador Lajos made this remark on at Fangkaso Marketing Federation project site in Janjanbureh, while on a visit to EU-funded projects.
The visit to the project sites was led by EU, FAO, Concern Universal, NAOSU, Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs and implementing partners AVISU, WIG and FANGSOTO.
It also witnessed the handing over of three motorbikes purchased by the project to three marketing federations, as well as the launching of the market information system imbedded with information from five major markets in the country, covering nine major vegetable crops and developed in three languages English, Mandinka and Wollof.
He said he felt honoured not only to visit the successful project sites, but also to celebrate the successes registered by women.
The EU ambassador pointed out that when chances are given to people women especially, they take it and make it beneficial for themselves and their families.
