Powerful women can change the world! Last month World Vision’s Strong Women, Strong World initiative teamed up with the Bush Institute in New York to host a Tea and roundtable for the First Ladies of Africa. The gathering was a follow-up to the African First Ladies Summit in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania in July.

Conversations focused on improving health, educational opportunities and economic empowerment, particularly for women and girls. This gathering provided the chance to determine intersections and opportunities for collaboration.

Each First Lady had an opportunity to describe her priorities, and discuss other initiatives she wished to support. By sharing best practices and fostering partnerships to expand the impact and effectiveness of the work being done, this meeting helped African First Ladies continue to make incredible differences.
