Yesterday, was celebrated world wide as International Womens day’. 

There were so many posts to celebrate this day, but one post struck me. it read “without ;HER’ even ‘HERO’is ‘o’.


Wikipedia defines a Hero as a person or main character of a literary work who, in the face of danger, combats adversity through feats of ingenuity, bravery or strength, often sacrificing their own personal concerns for a greater good.

A woman is a Hero cause she forsakes all happiness for that of her family.

In traditional Africa, the woman does all kinds of work available to keep her family strong , healthy and in most cases have the greater hand in making sure they are educated.

Yesterday, in a conversation with a friend, he told how his father was always trying to make things work;and how his mother hawked the streets to support him by ensuring they had money to buy books and other school essentials.

Another told how his mother constantly facing abuse decided to do all that was possible to ensure her children; especially girls get the best education so they can be Independent and supportive of their families when they grow up.

Women sacrifice a lot everyday to make sure their families get the best of what they had and what they never had.

I’m sure most of us have a story to tell about our mothers.

Drop a line to share how that one woman changed your life.

This is why our first post on the Hauk Foundation Blog is dedicated to  ‘WE,MEN’.

The world celebrates you because without you, there will be no US.
