This week Valverde in El Hierro celebrated International Women’s Day with a parade for equality that included the participation of students from the Garoe Institute and Valverde School.
This parade started from the Government Delegation Offices and ended at the Plaza Virrey de Manila, where a manifesto was read and students took the opportunity to present work completed to promote the need for equal opportunities.
The City Councils of Valverde and El Pinar collaborated with this initiative, as well as support from the Government of El Hierro.
