Standtall is Back

Hey my people, I really felt like I have gone for a year! Howdie? I have missed a lot I know, and I am back to try as much as I can to catch up.

Calabar was great. The training was fabulous. We now have about 26 young feminists/ transformative leaders ready to take women's human rights issues and Nigeria to the next level. All thanks to Baobab for Women's Human Rights, the organiser of Young Women Leadership Institute.

                                                   SOME PARTICIPANTS AT THE INSTITUTE

I am going to make a post on "Interview Thursday" by this Thursday. I am featuring Chioma of Celebrate Africa. The young woman that is taking a tour around Africa by road with her sister- Oluchi. These brave women are worthy to be celebrated. You will hear how it's like touring Africa from the horse's mouth. Till then, I am making my blog rounds as much as I can...
