In honor of International Women’s Day, a global celebration of the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future, held every March 8th, Bien de Mujer organized a special outing to celebrate the women of our Granos Solidarios group. To read about the history of this women’s group–all their projects and activities, please visit our previous blog.
At 9 am, on March 19th, 50 women from Granos Solidarios packed onto a bus from La Carpio and headed, singing all the way, to Parque del Este for a day of fun and relaxation. The day started off with yoga in the park, swimming in the park pool, and some group games and exercises. After lunch, the women were serenaded by a Nicaraguan folk singer, which became a sing-along and much dancing!
For many women, this outing was the only time they had been away from La Carpio, or away from their husbands and families. It was truly a special day for the women of Granos Solidarios, to see all the photos from this celebration of our women: http://www.flickr.com/photos/biendemujer/sets/72157626320455708/
