Posted January 14, 2013 from Nigeria

About Me: Joy Eze is a a rural women leader, social enterprenour, peace advocate, mentor, motivator, and mediator with more tha 10 years experience on these activities. She had attended many capacity building workshops and had participated in resolving conflicts and bringing peace amongst people and communities in Uzo-Uwani LGA, Enugu State, Nigeria and had on several occasions demonstrated her skills positively, and efficiently to the admirstion of members of her community. A case in point being that in 2008, she mediated in a protracted logger-head between Farmers in Uzo-Uwani and normadic Fulani Cattle Rearers. The Fulani cattles had habitually destroyed farmlands owned by members of the Uzo-Uwani farming Community. This led to disbutes, bitter quarrels, fighting of vendatas, killings, and the raping of young women and girls between the two communities. Her mediation brought peace to the two communities and ended their misunderstanding. She organized the women of both communities and trained them as peacemakers and inspired and urged them to privail upon their husbands and children to ensure that peace reigned in the community.

My Passions: WOKING WITH WOMEN AND YOUNG GIRLS

My Challenges: LACK OF FINANCES TO CARRY OUT SOME OF PROJECT.

My Vision for the Future: IS TO LIVE IN A WORLD WERE WOMEN AND YOUNG GIRLS WILL BE FREE FROM VIOLENCE,RAPE AND BE ECONOMICALLY EMPOWERED.
