Why the Name FED for Our Association?

Our association carries the name FED which signifies "women, children in danger," for if women are threatened, the whole family is threatened and affected. We are trying to give a place to women, to consider women, so that she finds her place again in life.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Girls Transform the World Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring girls greater access to education which will transform their lives, their families, and communities. The Girls Transform Campaign elicits insightful content from young women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as women, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

Chère Princesse, Merci

Chère Princesse,

Merci beaucoup pour cette explication du nom de votre association. Il est en effet si important qu'on reconnaisse que la femme est au centre de tout. Aider les femmes est important en soi, mais il y a aussi cette deuxième conséquence positive: aider les femmes c'est aussi aider leurs enfants. Le nom FED exprime de façon très directe et efficace cette relation entre les femmes et les enfants.

Quelles sont les situations de danger que vous voyez le plus souvent?
Quelles sont les obstacles qui empêchent les femmes de "se retrouver dans la vie," comme vous l'avez dit?

Je vous encourage avec tout mon âme dans votre travail pour les femmes.

Amicalement,
Kirsten (traductrice français->anglais)
