Girls Excel participated in a documentary Film Screening and discussion of “A Single Step: Journeys of Women Leaders” to celebrate Women History Month. The event which took place on  March 10, 2016 was organized by the US embassy Yaounde.


The 30 minutes documentary showcased top-flight panel of women experts reaching out to young people around the world with a message of hope—that vulnerable groups, especially girls/women, can be involved and engaged in making positive global change. The event was also an opportunity for an inter generational dialogue, sharing of personal experiences and learning from formidable mothers like Yaa Gladys Viban, veteran women’s right advocate who inspired the younger generation women to take action.

Happy International Women’s Day!
