Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to see women and girls in Nigeria live freely, make decisions about their bodies without being judged or stereotyped. I want every part of the county to be safe for women and girls to live in. I want the Nigerian government to implement policies that will protect women and girls from violence and stereotypes.
It's all part of making a better world.
Women and girls will grow and have access to Sexual and Reproductive Health needs. They will have laws and policies that enable them become whoever they want to be. They will also have access to fundamental human rights which will set them as important contributors to the society.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by women and girls in Nigeria. Most especially in the Northern part of Nigeria where the lives of women and girls are daily dictated by patriarchal culture and religion that has endangered their lives.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Ratification of Acts that protect women and girls in all states in Nigeria.
Women and girls that have more information about their fundamental human Rights including Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights.
Improved access to health needs for women and girls in Nigeria.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
1. When the VAPP Act 2015 is domesticated across the states in Nigeria.
2. When perpetrators of violence and rape are arrested and jailed.
3. When the maternal mortality rate and unsafe abortion rate starts decreasing.
4. When the healthcare system is inclusive of Sexual minorities and persons living with disabilities.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
