Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to create policies that protect women against Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV), strengthen institutions to enable them to handle cases of SGBV and provide medical and psychological support to victims
It's all part of making a better world.
A world where women and girls can walk freely without fear of being abused either in their homes, schools or workplace.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by women and girls first in Nigeria, and hopefully across the world.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Inclusive legislation that broadens the definition of SGBV and had stringent punishments for the crimes
Reduced time spent on SGBV cases by courts.
Reduced cases of SGBV and more awareness about tools and resources available for victims.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
- Number of cases of SGBV reported and prosecuted
- Time spent on cases by courts across the country
- The existence of an encompassing and inclusive legislation
- Rate of recidivism
- Frequency of cases of SGBV
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
