President of a non governmental organization called Femmes Africa Solidarit (FAS), Madam Bineta Diop has commended the wife of the Hon. Vice President of Sierra Leone, Mrs. Kadia Sam Sumana and the First Lady, Sia Nyama Koroma for their invaluable roles in the introduction of programmes aimed at empowering the women of Sierra Leone. Madam Bineta Diop was speaking yesterday Thursday 3rd September 2009 at the Vice Presidents office, during a lunch hosted in her honour.

According to Madam Diop who has vast experience working for UN agencies in Zimbabwe, Mozambique and elsewhere on the African continent, women empowerment is on the agenda of every well-meaning government and institution.

She added that the just-concluded conference on the National Action Plan of the UN Security Council Resolutions 1325 and 1820 held at Miatta Conference Centre in Freetown, was timely, as according to her, both the First and Second Ladies of Sierra Leone have been seriously engaged in empowering women taking into account the years of brutal war the country has experienced which brunt was felt mainly by women.

Earlier, the wife of the Vice President, Mrs. Kadia Sam Sumana welcomed the Guest of Honor Madam Diop on behalf of the First Lady Mrs. Sia Nyama Koroma, who she said was currently in Britain advancing the interests of women in Sierra Leone as a guest of Sarah Brown, the wife of the British Prime Minister.

Kadia Sam-Sumana told her audience that woman empowerment has been the focus of the First Lady and herself ever since, adding that this is tackled by making easier access for girls to receive education and ensuring that infant and maternal mortality rates are lowered to the barest minimal.

She thanked all those present for attending the lunch which was held in honor of Madam Diop. Yesterdays lunch was the climax of the conference that was held at the Miatta Conference Centre the previous day.
