Programs: The promotion of the world day of prayer
For me, World Day of Prayer is a unique experience. On the first Friday in March women from all over the world come together to pray for the women and children of a particular country. You get to learn about the country; its challenges and triumphs while sending prayers to these affected women and children. World Day of Prayer is truly inspirational and has taught me so much about the lives of women all around the world.
