“DigitALL: Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality”

Purple and White, signifying justice, dignity and purity, is shown in solidarity for Women’s Empowerment in the streets of Sir Hubert Murray Stadium to Ela Beach for International Women’s Day.

International Women’s Day is a global initiative celebrated annually on March 8. This year’s theme is “DigitALL: Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality”. 

As part of our continuous efforts for a healthy, safe, clean city, NCDC Active City Development Program hosted a Walk for International Women’s Day, Sunday, March 5 2023, from 5:30am to 8:30am from Sir Hubert Murray Stadium to Ela Beach.

This walk is not only to celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness, act, and promote and support women but to bring attention to women’s rights issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence and abuse against women.

The Walk for Life was joined by more than 500 women and girls from all the communities in Port Moresby to celebrate freedom and rights and recognize the contribution of women and girls worldwide to build a better future for all.

Southside Crew, ACDP Dance Crew and Vadavada Community Kids also entertained morning walkers with entertaining and energetic performances.

Special acknowledgement to our sponsors for today, JICA for donating 140 branded water bottles and 7 cartons of water, Australian Volunteers for donating 5 cartons of water and Nestle for distributing free coffee to the walkers.
