Rome 07.03: YPFDJ members met at Nakfa House today. The meeting was
aimed at exchanging and teaching the history of Eritrea liberation
struggle to other members and discussing how to contribute on March 8

member took a job to carry out during theWomen's Day to come.

women that benefited from the micro-credit programs like modifying the

absorbent factory -founded by E.P.L.F before independence- mostly run by

has put to thrash about old habits.

She presented the role played by E.P.L.F. in helping women from
liberated and semiliberated areas during the struggle. Sophia explained
the importance of women in
assisting and acting in different levels of the struggle from ordinary

the main contributors to the liberation struggle."
