MAKING IT BETTER: Gratitude and Forgiveness

Happy New Year all! I have to say I am really excited to be in a forum that I trust can only be soul enhancing, empowering, provoking and most of all a space where like-minded women(maybe men?) can come together and have some fun even when we agree to disagree. I have spent the best […]

Supporting Female Victims of Violence

Advocacy for zero tolerance for all form of violence against women and young girls, is not complete without practical support services for victims. While advocacy promotes the rights of women to leave a violent free life; practical support services protects those rights, when they are infringed upon. There are various forms of practical support services […]

Learning not to be Angry

This article was originally a rant on my Facebook wall but several sisters reached out to ask if I could elaborate on some of the issues I raised affecting all of us in one way or another. If you were lucky enough to have read the original piece, do just pretend you are seeing this […]

Girls not brides!

A hearty Gbosa!(Well done!) to Bisi Adeleye-Fayemi and her team for setting up this forum. It is much needed and long overdue. A very loud Gbosa!

Honoring God and Blessing Humanity

Honoring God and Blessing Humanity

For all the Lord has done, He’s doing and He will yet do, I am grateful. I am a product of grace and nothing else. When I was born, people gathered to mourn for my parents, saying, ‘a girl? What will she become?’ To them, girls did not amount to anything. Growing up, I remember […]

Synergy In Business

Synergy In Business

It is said that synergy is a business enhancer. I agree totally because I believe also that synergy is the way to move forward in most things in life.  One of the religious books even states: One person can chase 1000 (enemies) but TWO can chase 10,000 – a multiplying supernatural equation that defies explanation.
