Economically empower women survivors of violence with me.

What I'm Leading

Domestic violence is a daily occurrence in Nigeria. Girls learn to expect it and tolerate it once married. Women believe their husbands have the right to beat them. I used to think so too, and I was beaten too.

When I gave birth to daughters, I decided to make a change. I stood up for them, myself, and the women of our community and founded Star of Hope Transformation Center for women survivors of domestic violence. We provide a healing space where women can recover, learn about their rights, and acquire income-generating skills. Our latest project, Trash to Treasure, encourages women to add value to their lives by producing and selling beautiful products made from recycled materials.

Who I'm Impacting

6,120 abused women in 3.5 years.

About Me

Olutosin founded Star of Hope Transformation Centre and Tosin turns trash to treasure, after her training as one of the Voices of our Future Correspondents on World Pulse in 2011, but it was formally registered in 2013. With such an empowerment opportunity on Worldpulse , she knew that there is no going back in sacrificing whatever it takes to liberate women and children from the shackles of oppression, irrespective of race, creed, tongue or geographical area, as long as we are human beings. We work in four thematic areas, which are: Child Sexual Abuse, prevention, response and treatment, Gender Based Violence, Empowerment on Street Skills and the Centre operates both online and offline resources which provides valuable materials on the highlighted subjects. Olutosin believes in equality of women and men also that every adult in the community is responsible for the protection of children, therefore everyone must be empowered on prevention of violence, in all forms.
