OWWA-ARMM joins the 2017 National Women’s Month Celebration

COTABATO CITY – The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration - Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (OWWA-ARMM) joined the annual celebration of Women's Month last Wednesday, March 8, 2017.


The celebration organized by the Regional Commission on Bangsamoro Women (RCBW-ARMM) kicked off with an early morning parade of ARMM agencies at the ARMM Compound followed by an Opening Program at Shariff Kabunsuan Cultural Complex, ARMM Compound, Cotabato City.

This year's theme “WE Make Change Work for Women” emphasizes that women should be active drivers in bringing about positive changes, and that they should also reap from development efforts. This can be made possible by empowering women – enabling them to meaningfully engage with other development stakeholders, and by fully implementing the Magna Carta of Women (MCW).
