BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, Chigwell observed the UN’s International Women’s Day (IWD) with an inspiring in-person programme on Saturday 26 March 2022.
BAPS’s celebration of IWD represents its on-going commitment to women and matters of importance to women, as inspired and guided by His Holiness Mahant Swami Maharaj.
The programme centred on three key themes – Enhancing Confidence and Positivity, Staying Safe, and Seeking Out Goodness – that enhanced the overall message of celebrating and supporting the invaluable role and contributions of women in our world.
The programme illustrated the powerful impact that women have had throughout the challenging two years of the global pandemic and brought to life their positivity. It also paid tribute to the multitude of family, social and professional roles that women have undertaken by drawing upon their powerful and inspiring virtues.
These noble virtues were explored through various mediums, including personal testimonies, uplifting video presentations, a panel discussion, interactive games, and more.
The messages were enhanced through keynote addresses by guest speakers.
