The First Lady of The Republic of The Gambia Madame Fatou Bah Barrow has embarked on a caravan tour visiting women’s gardens in commemoration of The International Women’s Day, a day set aside to celebrate women all over the world.

The First Lady is accompanied by officials from UNFPA, FAO, UN as well as Gambia Government officials.

She first visited The Lamin Horticultural Garden where she interacted with women and celebrated them for their hard work. First Lady Barrow is described by the women as a very humble human being. She is said to have donated handsomely to support them in appreciation of their hard work.

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

The campaign theme for this year is #BeBoldForChange.
