At a very festive and colorful event, President Paul Kagame and First Lady Jeannette Kagame graced the celebration of the International Women’s Day 2024. The event that brought together thousands of women from different sectors across the country took place at BK Arena in Kigali city.

This year’s ceremony was held under the theme ‘Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress’. The event reflected on women’s role to national development, remarking that the progress of the country is greatly dependent on the advancement of gender equality and placing women into leadership positions.

“Rwanda women are the pillar of this nation, they have made praiseworthy contributions in the three-decade journey of rebuilding the country,” President Paul Kagame said in his remarks at the event. He further noted that more is still to be done to empower women more so that their untapped potential is boosted in order to take the country to further development.

This year’s theme requires every individual to recognize the burning need to address the obstinate challenges hindering the progress of gender equality. The economic empowerment of women remains a principal objective in the pursuit of equality between men and women.

“Women have been a cornerstone of the prosperity for Rwanda. Even in during the past situations of conflict, they were in a position to make unique contributions to peace and stability. Women deserve all the peace they require without begging for it,” President Kagame said.

Investing in a woman is much beyond on human rights imperative. It goes as far as being an economic and social sense. The theme indicates that gender equality fosters more inclusive economic growth and benefits everyone in society. “Gender equality is not a woman issue, it is everyone’s concern,” He said.

The event acts as timely reminder that sufficient Women and girls have made great gains – demolishing barriers, dismantling stereotypes and driving progress towards a more just and equal world.

The day was an opportunity to connect, celebrate women’s achievements, and discuss future actions!
