In the week of Monday 2nd to Friday 6th March, KIND hosted a Focus Group Discussion for Alumni of the Young Voices for Change “Safe Spaces” Programme at the Lagos State Polytechnic, Ikorodu Campus, Ikorodu, Lagos on Wednesday 4th of March.
Young Voices for Change programme which is a DFID sponsored project has trained 240 participants, 180 of which were from Lagos State Polytechnic and 60 were from the University of Lagos. The programme is aimed at improving the Leadership, Decision making and Life-Skill competencies of adolescents between the ages of 16 – 25 in post secondary institutions across Nigeria.
We’re glad to inform everyone that based on the interactions with the alumni, impressive impact has been made on the participants, who are in turn implementing activities to impact the lives of people around them.
KIND also conducted a step-down training on election monitoring for 30 women on Friday 6th of March, under the auspices of the Nigerian Women’s Platform for Peaceful Elections, which a UN Women sponsored platform. The platform is set to have women observe the election with a gender lens, and report live to a Women’s Situation Room, which would monitor, report and get stakeholders to intervene in situations of violence.
