Young girls empowerment

Posted October 19, 2019 from Nigeria

My name is Margaret, am from Nigeria. I have seen a lot of injustices been done to women who are not financially empowered. I have seen women beaten and battered by their husbands and yet their voice has never been heard by the society. I pondered on this and came to the conclusion that our women needs empowerment and a voice. I am a fashion designer and I have promised myself to train and teach girls especially teenage girls on how to be self employed and guard themselves from been taking advantage of.

Hi Memphis,

Welcome to World Pulse were women connect and encourage one another.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on women empowerment. That is a good advocacy on training and teaching teenage girls how to be self-employed and guarding themselves against being taking advantage.

Looking forward to more stories you will share in this platform.

Dear Margaret,
A warm welcome to the World Pulse Family.
I wish you a very best for fulfilling your objective to make young girls for their employment and their physical security. It's a very important factor for every girl to be independent. Good work my sister, please keep continuing.
Best regards,

Thanks Memphis for sharing, I have seen young girls going through such abuse just because they are desperate to belong and have financial stability and the root and cause of this is from "home" where there is less love and support from parents and family and because of poverty we end up giving ourselves just to get support whereas in the process all we get is abuse.
