LDS Women’s Association holds AGM

The LDS Women’s Association (LDSWA) assembled at the International Conference Centre on Sunday for its Annual General Meeting.

Members from all over Seychelles gathered for this meeting under the theme “Women United for Change”. The event was for the Association to fulfil administrative requirements under the law but also to discuss issues of interest to its members and look at the year ahead. 

Chairperson Desheila Bastienne opened the meeting and Hon. Flory Larue officiated as MC. The administrative duties included a report of the activities of the Association presented by its Chairperson and a Treasurer’s report presented by member Cheryl Philoe. The Association also adopted its revised constitution.

Two members made presentations on subjects of concern : Cynthia Haryba on the participation of women in politics and Beryl Valentin on women’s health.

In an open forum, members raised several issues which included suggestions to make the support of women for LDS more visible, to strengthen the presence of LDSWA in districts and for LDS to maintain efforts to tackle political victimisation. 

Closing the meeting, LDS leader Roger Mancienne took up the subject of women particition in politics, describing it as a vital goal. He called on the members of LDSWA to be the first in line to fight for this cause.
