Skin bleaching is a huge problem in my community.
In preparations for the celebration of the 2019 International girl-child day, I am working closely with a group of 13 girls from different backgrounds on a project we Tagged 'Dark Damsels' This project will be aired on Wazobiafm Onitsha Nigeria, on the 11th of October 2019.
