Afabet, 6 September 2010 - The head of the NUEW branch in Afabet sub-zone, Ms. Saediya Mohammed Adem, said that women are becoming not only beneficiaries of the newly available social services but are also being competitive in various aspects thanks to the vigorous efforts made to promote the all-round participation of Eritrean women.

She stated that thousands of youths are graduating in diverse fields from the various colleges and vocational training centers in different parts of the country, and that the fact that a number of females have become equal beneficiaries of the opportunity constitutes a gratifying achievement in itself.

Ms. Saediya further noted that the intensive campaign undertaken to uproot harmful and backward practices against women is making strong impact in raising the awareness of the public at large. In this connection, she pointed out that education holds the key to combating such adversity, and that the campaign needs to be enhanced.
