100 women came together for aerobics and fun to celebrate Finland's centenary and Women's Day

This year Finland is celebrating her 100 years of independence and the Embassy of Finland in Dar es Salaam is going to celebrate Finland's centenary with various ways during the year. As part of the celebrations and recognition of the International Women’s Day, the Embassy organized a special event where around 100 wonderful women from different nationalities came together for aerobics and fun.

– I think that Finland is a good example of how women have always been an essential part of the whole country's success story. We women have to keep together and help each other to reach far and high, said the hostess of the event and ambassador's spouse, Ms. Ulla Hukka.

– The physical fitness goes hand in hand with mental strength. So let's keep moving!

After exercising and sweating together women had the chance to get to know each other, change experiences and enjoy the Finnish-Tanzanian juices, the snacks from Finland100 festive menu as well as the live music of a local jazz band.
