Empowering women and girls is a dream come true In my life as I am able put smile on some faces. My heart bleeds each time I see Women and girls under, pain truma and torture as was the case of Eve my causin who was raped at the age of 17 and got pregnant. Due to her situation, she was stigmatized by family, friends and community who saw her as a disgrace. Considering her family was not well to do family she was driven from home and had little or nothing to eat until she acquired some life skills which enable her sustain herself and her baby. I saw this as chanllenge for all woman to be able empowered with skills in other to be financially independent because an empowered woman is a sustainable nation.
