Maskros Afrika, the Swedish section of Dandelion Africa, participated in a four day conference between the 12th and 15th of June called Nordic Forum – New Action on Women’s Rights in Malmö, Sweden. It was hosted by the Nordic women’s movement and consisted of seminars, workshops, entertainment, and inspiration for the promotion of equality and women’s rights. Maskros Afrika shared a show case with the Swedish NGO Mensen (“The Period”) and held a presentation together with them on stage. In the presentation that was given by Swedish board members, the focus was on our most recent projects, Let it flow, Girls for Leaders, and also on more general information about the daily work that Dandelion Africa does. The response was really good and we are all very happy that we got the opportunity to participate in the Nordic Forum.
Maskros Afrika is looking forward to the coming months and our future work. Look out for dates and places where we will participate at markets to sell our beautiful jeweleries, and more!
