ECOWAS Women Rebrand Group, Prepare For Cultural Week

By Wilfred Gortor

MONROVIA, April 17 (LINA) - The founder of ECOWAS Women in Liberia, Chinyere Nwabudike, has called on all women and members of the organization to form part of the rebranding process of  the organization to sustain national peace and unity among ECOWAS women in the country.

Ms. Nwabudike wants members to unite and put aside differences among them, so that together they can revamp and resuscitate the organization which, according to her, "has been dormant for some years as the result of dissatisfaction among the women."

ECOWAS Women in Liberia, is a civil society non-governmental organization which consists of women from the 15 ECOWAS countries living in Liberia, was established in 2004 to contribute to the peace process by changing the mindset of women from believing that one country can bring all the peace that ECOWAS Women in Liberia desire.

Addressing a press conference held at the head office of the Young Women Christian Organization in Congo Town, outside Monrovia over the weekend, Ms. Nwabudike disclosed that the organization intends to bring on board all its members so that they can together commemorate the coming ECOWAS Day on May 28.

"The celebration of the ECOWAS Day will be marked by the ECOWAS Women Cultural Week of Unity," she said, adding: "Activities will start on May 21 so we are planning because we want to have unity, and peace among ECOWAS Women living in Liberia.”

Ms. Nwabudike said, during the week-long celebration, the organization will construct 15 booths representing the ECOWAS nations in a suitable location where food and cultural exhibits from the ECOWAS member countries will be sold.

Among other activities, she noted that there will be an open fair for business promotion, products exhibition as well as entertainment by local artists.

Meanwhile, Ms. Nwabudike, has urged all women, and members of the business community and other commercial organizations to take advantage of the program so that together they can restore unity among women in the country and the region.
