The Secretary General of the Young Women Christian Association of Liberia (YWCA) Roseline Toweh has admonished Liberian women ahead of the Senatorial election to be focused and elect women who can deliver the necessary goods for them.
“Do not support women because they have money rather people who will seek your interest and are qualified and potent to do the job”, Mrs. Toweh noted.
Speaking at her 60th Birthday celebrations on Saturday February 8, 2020, the YWCA boss said it is about time for women of Liberia to be united and do away with hatry, bit biting and work together to help move the Country forward.
She wants Liberian women to speak with one voice and champion a united course in the supreme interest of young girls and women across Liberia.
According to her women of Liberia got more work to do to change the status core in their sector as such they should now engage into meaningful ventures for the betterment of the society.
Mrs. Toweh encouraged her female colleagues to join forces together to help less fortunate girls in the society especially those who are in the ghettos and other vulnerable places to ensure that they regain hope back in society.
She observed that some potential young girls of Liberia are languishing in streets and unwholesome places because of peer pressure, poverty among other issues, this she noted needs to be addressed by them holistically.
However, she stressed that it is key for female’s role module in the society to set the pace and motivate other young ones through educative guidance, noting that they can make the necessary difference in society despite the current challenges.
Women shed added are natural developers and a great engine to growth but they can only fulfill such when they work together for a common good, the women advocate intoned.
Madam Toweh said unlike in the past there are now prepared, capable and potential women in Liberia who can shape the course of the Country positively but they need to see collectivity, cohesiveness and many others as paramount to their sojourn.
She said the campaign to see women take a center stage at all political decision making processes is a huge task but with determination, sincerity, team work and passion from all women in the sector, they can achieve it.
The YWCA head encouraged young girls to see themselves as agents of positive change as such they should not allow their current situation to killed their dream to make a significant impact in society.
