MOSP launches directory of women’s organisations

DPI, GUYANA, Friday, March 9, 2018

The Ministry of Social Protection, on Thursday evening, launched its Directory of Women’s Organisations, which lists three hundred and twenty-five (325) organisations.

The directory was unveiled at the “I am Woman’ cultural programme held in observance of International Women’s day at the Parc Rayne Inn.

The catalogue which was compiled by the former head of the National Resource and Documentation Centre Yvonne Stephenson and a team, is divided into three sections that range from alphabetical to regional listings of various women’s groups

Stephenson is of the opinion that the directory will benefit trainers, social planners and persons engaged in any developmental aspect of Guyana. She said through the catalogue individuals and other groups can communicate with each other to find out about activities that may be off the radar.

First Lady of Guyana Sandra Granger, Minister of Social Protection Amna Ally were among government officials who received copies of the directory.

Minister Amna Ally gives a copy of the directory to Mr. Adler Bynoe, Liaison Officer of UNFPA.
