The Maghreb Center, The United Nations Association YPIC International Law and Africa Committees, and the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania cordially invite you to a very special event.
Empowering Youth and Women in Mauritania
When: Thursday June 21, 2007 at 6:00 pm
Where: Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania
2339 S Street, NW, Washington DC 20008
Please join us and our host, His Excellency Tijani Ould Mohamed El Kerim, Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania to the U.S., and hear from a representative from the UN Population Fund to learn more about empowering youth and women in Mauritania and to experience the sights, sounds, and tastes of the country.
In recent years Mauritania has successfully reduced the proportion of the population living below the national poverty line, improved access to education and addressed gender inequalities in primary school enrollment. Involving youth–70% of the population– and women in development strategies is fundamental to sustaining and building upon these achievements. Improving access to information and educational opportunities ensures that youth and women are empowered to contribute to Mauritania’s attainment of several MDGs, and build a more prosperous future.
