The 2019 Golden Image Award (GIA) National Secretariat and the Liberia Crusaders for Peace have officially announced the formal program of this year’s event gets underway on Thursday, July 18th, 2019 at the Monrovia City Hall in Monrovia.
The Golden Image Award is Liberia’s premier award program that recognizes the talents and contributions of individuals in all aspects of life from a broad spectrum of society.
A press release last night quoted Liberia’s Culture Ambassador Juli Endee who is the key Architect of the program as saying that the 2019 event will award only women, while acknowledging the enormous contributions and support of Liberia’s dynamic Feminist in Chief and principal He-for-She partner, as a forerunner for women empowerment in Liberia.
She noted that this year’s anniversary will primarily focus on celebrating women of substance globally, with the theme: “Stop the Violence against Women,” as international women share the stage with Liberian women.
The event which is the 9th edition of the Golden Image Award will also place highlight on adolescent girls in Nimba and Grand Bassa counties.
Ambassador Endee has spoken of the need to keep elevating the profile and sacrifices of women for their role in development and the socio-economic and political advancement of the country.
The Culture Ambassador further said the 2019 Golden Image Award is particularly unique as it coincides with the National Patriotic Initiative, “Show Love” campaign that has been ongoing for several months. The “Show Love” campaign is intended to promote love, peace and tolerance among Liberians, with emphasis on maintaining the peace in the country, a press release signed by Ambassador Juli Endee, Chief Organizer of the – Golden Image Award concluded,
