Very recently, I read with dismay an online article credited to the British Deputy High Commissioner in Lagos, Laure Beaufils, which stated that about 36% of Nigerian teenage girls from ages15 to 19 are mothers. This, of course has become a worrisome trend, not just because girls are the most vulnerable in the society but much more because if their welfare is neglected, the society becomes deeply and negatively affected.
It has been 2 months that I have been training 10 inmates on ICT Skills at the Bamenda Central Prison. As the main trainer assisted by one other direct collaborator, we have successfully ended the first phase of the Creative Skills for Peace Project oraginesd by LoYoCo Cameroon.
This project provides an alternative way of life for youths with a history of violence, who are either in prison or correctional facilities a chance at becoming better versions of themselves by giving them a second chance, to live, to be better.
