Happy International Women’s Day! In honor of #IWD2021 today, I’m celebrating some incredible women on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis in Benin: the @batongafoundation Mentors. Throughout this COVID-19 pandemic, Batonga Mentors have led their communities emergency response efforts and disseminated clear and accurate information to their communities in times of uncertainty and widespread mistrust. They have done this all while also ensuring the young women and girls in their clubs remain safe and supported. I am so impressed by their commitment, hard work, and resiliency. Today I invite you to join me in celebrating this incredible network of local women leaders. You can learn more about the Batonga Mentors’ incredible work and and how you can support them by visiting the link in bio.
