International Widows’ Day 2021

June 23 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us as we mark the International Widows’ Day 2021. The hybrid event will hold at the CBWN Nigeria Secretariat and via Zoom.

The United Nations acknowledges that widows are invisible to policymakers when they draw out national policies to address the problems of citizens. Policies focus upon common citizens, laborers, jobless youths, and other suffering segments of the society however widows are not considered worthy to be discussed in policy-making meetings. This is a condemnable act that more than 258 million people are ignored categorically by the policymakers only because they are widows.Traditionally, widows are considered a useless asset of the society because they get involved in the battle of survival and they can do little in terms of major tasks. Currently, global leadership united at the UNO platform discourages any such expression and it is argued that widows can do a lot for their nations if their energy and potential are channelized. It is essential to liberate them from the threat of basic needs scarcity so that they would perform productive tasks.
