As we celebrate Mother’s Day today, we remember the Princess Day that took place at our All4Women Centre on Lesvos a few months ago. Zahra* and her daughter Fatima* were among a group of mother-daughter pairs who registered and attended this special event. Here’s a short snippet of their experience.
They took turns painting each other’s nails;
They also did each other’s hair and make-up;
Both Zahra and Fatima got to decorate a tiara they could wear;
There was a specially designated time when Zahra and Fatima got to sit together and share what they love about each other;
At the end of the event, all mothers and daughters got together for a snack.
Today, as we celebrate all the mothers we love and admire, we also remember that every girl is a princess!
