To celebrate and commemorate women and mothers as part of international women’s day, The Social Development Committee organized an annual mixed activity event in late March of 2019 for a third year in a row, this time celebrating women’s health, ambition, and self-love. The attendees gathered by the beach side and were given shirts sporting the event’s motto “Change Begins with a Step”, afterwards the 70 Arab women from the ages of 20 to 70 walked as group for five kilometers along the shore.
After the stroll commenced, the attendees had breakfast in union at “Mazat” Restaurant where speeches were given by members of the SDC and then by a member of the city hall of Haifa.
The speeches were followed by a beautiful musical performance that garnered the amazement of those present. The event was finalized by a lecture from a female Arab athlete “Alfat Heidar” from Haifa, in which she talked about her tough yet empowering journey through the field of athletics.
It is important to note that this event’s purpose was to highlight a woman’s importance in creating change and that a woman must know her worth to herself, her family and to society in order to create a better future.
