This International Women's Day 2019, TYEE would like to celebrate the strength and the resilience of the ordinary Tongan woman.
The Tongan woman who despite her own lack of opportunities pushes the next generation to succeed. The everyday woman who puts others before herself, ensuring they succeed and she more than ever makes great sacrifices for them.
The everyday women who allow others to become great.
TYEE would like to acknowledge just a few of our ordinary and inspiring women who have played an extraordinary role and generously contributed to TYEE's achievements to date. These women deserve the recognition so our young generation can be inspired too. These women are professional women, business leaders, innovators, community leaders, entrepreneurs, volunteers and dedicated mothers who are out there every day to make a difference! This is a great opportunity to reflect on progress made and call for change to celebrate acts of courage and determination by these ordinary women in Tonga. We thank you for your love and support to date.
