UWAS President Irene and Membership Chair Casey attended a lunch meeting at the Istana with President Halimah Yacob on 1st Oct 2017.

It was an interesting meeting which provided an opportunity for discussion with S

ingapore's newly elected President on women's issues. The lunch also provided an opportunity to get to know newer board members of the other women's associations under the SCWO umbrella. Those present made full use of the rare chance to forge deeper bonds and explore the possibilities of working together on various UWAS programmes.

GWI (Former IFUW) Lorraine Mangwiro's recent article for World Pulse examined the current challenges facing indigenous girls and women in accessing education. National statistics expose the gravely concerning status quo with regard to literacy rates, where in Mexico, illiteracy amongst indigenous peoples is five time higher than the non-indigenous population. Indigenous girls and women are particularly affected by illiteracy; in Ecuador 40% of indigenous, rural women are illiterate compared to 20% of illiterate men, while in Peru, indigenous women represent 75% of the illiterate population. Gender norms and traditions as well as geographical obstacles are amongst the barriers to accessing quality education for indigenous girls and women. Non-traditional means of education can help tackles these barriers, including by utilising appropriate technology and teaching messages.
