Volunteers of the SI4DEV Ad-Ekiti location group organized a seminar for secondary schools of which Christ Girls School, Ado Ekiti attended the seminar with 20 students and their school Counselor. There were three resource persons to discuss on the theme: Understanding the Rights of Women and Girls. They are;
- Mrs Labake Oke who stood in for Rev (Mrs) Lola Afe ( Co-Pastor, the house of faith fellowship),
- Miss Omotola Aboloye ( Lecturer of civil engineering and the coordinator of Nobel women in Ekiti, Ondo and Launching state)
- Mr Taoheed ALIMI (The Ekiti State location partner for Strategy and Innovation for development Initiative). .
The seminar was anchored by a volunteer of the location group, Mr Agunbiade AbdulWasiu while all technical issues including documentations were done by another volunteer, Mr Akintayo Bamidele.
Mr Taoheed took the Keynote address while also explaining what SI4DEV initiatives is in details and also giving an overview of the purpose of the seminar.
Mrs Labake went ahead to present a lecture note for the seminar which was later given to the counselor of Christ Girls School for reference purpose. She itemized the major causes of violence against women and girls while she also gave solutions. Her point of emphasis is the need for women to have VALUES as this gives them a certain immunity against VIOLENCE.
Miss Omotola shared her experience being a coordinator of an NGO that deals with women with stories thatwere all emotional and educating which made her session a lively one throughout.
The seminar came to an end with a vote of thanks from Mr Taoheed Alimi who acknowledge the support of the counselor of Christ Girls school, the Lead Pastor of the house of faith fellowship, volunteers of the initiative who were around and the delegates that made it to the seminar. He charged the students to go on to replicate the value given to them by relating those information to their colleagues. As a means of refreshment, a bottle of coke was given to all delegates while bottle water was given to the facilitators and the counselor.
It was indeed a timely workshop, because the exponential increase of domestic violence, rape and abuse in our community is alarming and with workshops like this, incidents of rape can be prevented. Beyond that, awareness of the fundamental right of women and girls which are not adequately communicated due to cultural background amongst other reasons will be reduced through this type of seminar.

This is interesting! SI4DEV is making waves all around. We will take Nigeria by storm on community development.

SI4DEV is the best thing that happened to me in month March. I have always been looking forward to creating sustainable change in the society which I don’t know how. The organization brought the answer from within.
Start working brother.
Indeed SI4DEV strategy is awesome and with this model available on board result is guaranteed within a short period of time. All thanks to brain behind all this..
Community development is our prime priority
Kudo Mr Alimi! I admire the effort you put in and hope you continue to encourage young girls and women around you.
There action motivates me so much that I can’t wait to execute all that we have on paper down here in Kaduna.
Do sweep into action quickly fellow partner.
You can acknowledge me better by doing similar thing in your community Mr Ruke. The world needs us. And not until we take deliberate effort ourselves, change won’t come. Not even God will help because he only bless the activities of man.
Kudos ekiti group
Please, we need more of this in the northern part of Nigeria. Do us more good by replicating it over there.
The positive impact of this seminar to these teenage students will be amazing. Nice one, Ekiti group.
Yes … Positives impact ..
A very good development. Keep it up guys.
Great step … Caught them young ..
Well, I have always been particular about youth being leaders of tomorrow. But I get to realize these youths are not prepared. Making them out target audience is to expose them to opportunity I don’t have. When they grow up to my level, they will do far beyond what I did for them.
Great awareness created here. This is making me buckle up and we need to start out immediately down here in Kaduna. Thanks for sharing.
Yes, we need that indeed.
Do sweep into action quickly Robert. Let’s compete to make impact in our society.
Yes job Weldon
Keep up the good work
Well done! With continuous education, we will surely get there.
This is really nice and inspiring
Emmanuella, remember as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give another person reasons to do the same. I challenge you to do something impacting soon and as you do that, believe me, the impact keep multiplying.
Great one Ado Ekiti.!
Great job. Thanks for inspirating me.
Beyond inspiring you, I need you to out that inspiration to test by doing something remarkable in contributing to your community.
This is lovely! Keep it up Sir.
I look forward to your actions soon. Let’s together deliberately make our country the Nigeria she deserves to be.
This is Inspiring. There is a whole lot we can do as Active citizen to bring the needed change we also crave for in the various sectors in the country. Way to Go SI4DEV Ado-Ekiti.
Most Girls and women don’t know their right. Training, seminars and sympiosm on the Right of the Girl child is the right step in the direction in achieving Gender equality and ending sexism.
really offcourse hundred percent qgreed
Beyond that, providing avenue for capacity building helps a lot. A woman or girl of value has some certain level of immunity to violence.
thanks for making an impacts in our communities
It’s the responsibility of everyone. We have only lost the sincerity of purpose of creation. Social impact should be everybody’s watchword.
you can not bring a change without knowing your right
What do you mean by this statement… Or do you mean to say, you can only add value to another person by adding value to yourself firsthand?
Thank god we all know our rights! Certainly we will bring change
Community development is a powerful instrument of change. Let’s Educate our future leaders.
Its nice giving back to the society.
Its a good thing training the future today.
