our Fight Diabetes for Free event held in Nigeria, at the Ilasan Primary School compound Jakande, The God Bless Nigeria Church Isolo, Odo Street, Obalende and the Marywoood School, Ikeja screened about 2000-3000 people where we discovered that about a quarter were diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and 2 boys with Type 1 Diabetes.
Our next project is an all white charity gala titled "Breaking the Silence"The average Nigerian woman is often silent
with social and economical problems that affect her because of her gender.
Women are probably often misrepresented and addressed with lesser reverence to
men as a result of the perceived cultural notion that we are in a patricidal
society and we have been limited to the domestic sphere (Rwomire, 2001)
Research conducted at various university
hospitals in Nigeria further show that mothers and young girls experiencing
domestic violence, verbal abuse and other harmful assaults rarely open up
either for financial reasons or fear of stigmatization by the general public.
It was discovered that the mean estimate of abused women was 7 per year and
physical abuse was the most common type with 71.4% of women who visited the
said hospitals (C.O Aimakhu, 2004)
in this regard that we are planning our first women empowerment program in
Lagos, Nigeria. The goal of this project is to promote awareness on the
current issues women face in modern society and the various ways they can
tackle such situations. We plan on hosting a variety of social events, seminars
and workshops which aim to boost self esteem, character building and to create
an avenue to help and support the vulnerable and break the silence of rape and
