While lauding the project, Ghani submitted that women had pivotal roles to play in decision making in the society, considering their crucial role in raising children in the family.

“If men promote and support women’s participation in decision making, it will bring community peace and security, as the women could contribute immensely towards building peace in the society,” Dashe said.
