CONFIDENT GIRLS AMBASSADORS SUMMIT

GIRLS AT THE AMBASSADORS SUMMIT
GIRLS AT THE AMBASSADORS SUMMIT

Eight speakers including  was gathered from 6 countries to speak virtually and physically at the Confident girls Ambassadors Summit organized by Women Inspiration Development Center in Nigeria to mark 2021 International Women Day . 

At the event 130 girls was gathered from 30 high schools and institutions in Osun state Nigeria for the take off of the pilot program of Women Inspiration Development Center(WIDC) new initiative, "Confident Girls Initiative" 

This initiative is planning to gather 5000 girls from 200 schools from at least 30 states in Nigeria in the next five years to mentor, train and help to regain their confidence and become activist against Sexual and physical violence against women and girls in Nigeria.

There has been a great surge of domestic violence against women and girls in Nigeria since COVID 19 pandemic to date. Girls are no more safe anywhere. They are not safe in the school, they are not safe on the street and even in the corner of their homes which should be a safe haven for them, their lives are seriously threatened. 

We expect that participation in this project, with continued mentorship and peer support  in conjunction with meaningful internet engagement will result in significant positive behavioural change in the girls to continue to challenge the status quo that is making domestic violence thrive in our world..
