International Women’s Day

Restless Women Event: How can education power up a gender equal world?

On Tuesday 8th March 2022, we celebrated International Womens Day.

We heard stories from women at Restless Development who are leading gender equality in their day-to-day lives. From youth-led research on global education, to equipping women with business skills to earn a living and go back to education in Sierra Leone, to innovative mobile schools for vulnerable children in Nigeria, Restless women shared how we can achieve a gender equal world together and collectively #BreakTheBias.

This event also marked the launch of Restless Development’s UK Aid Match Appeal called Power Up.

Double your impact with a donation to our Power Up Appeal, supporting more girls in Sierra Leone and around the world to go to school, get their education and shape their own futures. Every pound you give between 7 March and 6 June will be doubled by the UK government.
