Beneficiaries of KIND leadership programmes in universities and polytechnics around Lagos joined Women Advocates Research and Documentation Centre (WARDC) and Purple Nigeria on a road walk for the International Women’s Day, March 8, 2017.
They marched from Ikeja Under Bridge to Lagos State Government House to discuss issues of concern affecting women in the state in commemoration of International Women’s Day but were disappointed when Governor Akinwumi Ambode did not meet with them.
LEADERSHIP PROGRAMME IN UNIVERSITIES AND POLYTECHNICS
In partnership with the UK Department for International Development (DFID) through Voices for Change (now Purple) KIND was able to improve the Leadership, Decision making and Life-Skills competencies of adolescent boys and girls between the ages of 16 – 25 in University of Lagos (UNILAG) and Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH).
We employed the use of interactive virtual and physical platforms, referred to as ‘safe spaces’ in the school training. Over 450 young people have benefited from the leadership development programme in both schools and we are still in the process of training more.
PICTURE OF THE TRAINED STUDENTS:
Students on the programme’s impact
Buki Temitope, one trained female student said ‘The training has helped me to develop my leadership skill and made me more assertive’
Oyewunmi Waliu, one of the trained boys said ‘The training made me understand the true meaning of Gender and gender equality and also know how to convince my colleagues not to practice violence against women’
Child Rights Project (Kano State)
This is a European Union (EU) sponsored project. KIND partnered with VSO International Nigeria to carry out the project in Kano State. The Objective of this initiative is to strengthen local child rights focused based civil society organizations and promote the effective civil society and community action as an effective force in fostering an enabling environment for the passage of the Child Rights Act in the state.
We equipped 40 students and 32 teachers in 16 schools from 6 Local Government Areas in Kano State and Kano State-based CSOs on the basic requirements of child rights.
