Hi David,

Do you run, or work for, a NGO? I would like to know more about your work, and your story on why you're so passionate about women who are suffering. Please tell us.

First i was given birth to by a woman,who is now late (my mum) i know how she suffered to put me through life and education,she worked at a local ngo,around where i live my mum constantly helped the woman that came around so to hear of their pains became something daily,i was a victim of the boko haram insurgency in nigeria because it happened where i schooled,so i live each day seeing the pains of woman around me,i wish i could work for an ngo that would help the need of women,its really bad,

Hi David,

Thanks for clarifying, and sharing. It makes sense now why you're so passionate to help women.

Perhaps you could reach out to a local NGO and volunteer?

Hello David,
Good on you for standing in solidarity with these women. It makes a difference when more people see the injustices, and care.

Hello, David,

I'm sorry that you lost your mother. You are an observant man. I hope you can find an NGO where you can volunteer and eventually work. There are a lot of women leaders and founders from Nigeria here. It would be great if you can be connected to them. Thank you for sharing.
