I am joining this network because I want to help me to impact in the life of young girls and equally advocate for the development and welfare of the girl child. Nigeria has improved but still has a long way to go in terms of the recognition of the rights of the girl child and currently there has been a high surge in domestic violence against women among other gender based violence as well. I want to learn from experienced fellows on this platform as well if you will have me.

Joining this network I believe will offer me that platform to achieve this because based on statistics and from my own experience there are lots of people out there that are so ignorant about what the law.
