Introducing myself and my journal: MY DREAM! MY FUTURE!

Posted September 21, 2013 from Nigeria

About Me: Hibiscus is borne out of the need to help the Nigeria girlchild who often time are neglected. Aside from poverty, social vices such as abuse, rape has ostracized most girls from the society while still within their community. They are to be seen and not henegard and to take whatever life has to offer them without complait. Some of them fortunate enough to be born in wealthy homes are misinformed about themselves due to neglects. Hibiscus helps in giving this girls a voice, counselling and empowering.

My Passions: girl empowerment

My Challenges: societal response

My Vision for the Future: international response to empowering the girlchild

My Areas of Expertise: counselling and self development
