Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
My vision is to end gender-based violence in Nigeria.
It's all part of making a better world.
I desire a world where there is mutual respect between girls and boys, men and women.
This is really going to help people.
Financial incapable women and men
Children in Internally displaced persons (IDP) camps
The northern part of Nigeria
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Increased report rate of gender-based violence
Improved access to information and help regarding gender-based violence
Reduced prevalence of gender-based violence in Nigeria
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
One way to measure success is the prevalence of conversations regarding GBV, as the culture of silence has greatly hampered this vision. Swift action by the government with regards to prosecution and punishment of offenders as well as legal aid for victims who are unable to pay for such, will be steps in the right direction.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
