2019 International Women’s Day Challenge

March 8, 2019

Friendship Bridge is a women’s empowerment organization. We are thankful for the support of socially-conscious men who recognize the role they play in creating gender equality. This International Women’s Day, we are inviting men to join us in a fun and unique challenge to step into the shoes of a woman in your life, and take on their role for the day. Does your wife care for the children? Does your mom do the cooking? Does your sister run a small business? Now is the time to show them your support! This challenge will raise funds through a Facebook fundraising platform!
