State of the Woman
By: Joyce Wanda, co-founder
Unforgettable time at the State of Women conference and at the White House this week! I represented REACH for Uganda and shared the honor with REACH’s incredible partners who were also invited; Tammy Tibbets and Christen Brand from She’s the First as change-makers in girls’ education.
It was a truly humbling experience to be in the same room with powerful Women and men who working to change tomorrow for the #StateofWomen and of-course girls education around the World.
I still can’t believe I was seated just a short distance away from the stage, listening to President Barrack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, First lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Billie Jean King, Warren Buffett, Kerry Washington and a whole host of other stars who lined up to speak. Thank you for the honor. Now If only REACH gets access to more funding, many more girls and boys live in rural Uganda will not be the same!
