Radio Interview with Ngozi Eze, Country Director of Women for Women International in Nigeria
Angels Bring Business and Women for Women International would like to share with you a recent radio interview where Ngozi Eze, Country Director of Women for Women International in Nigeria discusses the abduction of over 250 girls from a boarding school in Chibok, Nigeria, now over two weeks ago. You can listen to the interview online here.
This latest mass kidnapping is a new low point in Nigeria’s worsening security situation. Today, Nigeria is the country with the highest number of attempted abductions happening in the world and bombings, communal clashes and sexual assaults are also all too common. As always, the vulnerable members of society, women and children, are left to bear the brunt.
“While none of our training programmes in Nigeria operate near Chibok, our hearts are heavy with grief for the families of the young women and girls kidnapped and we echo their calls for global action to ensure their daughters are safely returned home. During these difficult times, we are committed to continuing our mission to help the most marginalised women in Nigeria strengthen their families and communities.” - Ngozi Eze, Country Director, Women for Women International – Nigeria.
Wmen for Women International believe that education, employment, literacy and rights awareness are crucial components to creating lasting peace and stability in Nigeria. WThey have been working in the country since 2000 and since then 51,000 women have completed their programme there learning vocational, business and leadership skills, learning about their rights and how to make their voices heard on a community and national level. With the recent developments, Women for Women International’s work has become more vital than ever before and we would like to thank you for your continued support through Angels Bring Business.
