Project ASHA is a youth-led NGO committed to advocating for and securing the basic human rights and Civil Liberties of society’s most vulnerable through good governance, democratic values & principles.
 
We believe that when women are empowered then they can truly contribute to the economic wellbeing of their household, support their children's education and create a thriving national environment.

Through our Empowering Laughter Events and Award Ceremonies, we hope to raise both awareness and funds for our Women and Girls Empowerment Work in Nigeria, whilst recognising notable citizens who champion women, girls and children empowerment. 

This year’s Empowering Laughter Event & Award Ceremony will take place at Oriental Hotel, 3, Lekki Road, Victoria Island, Lagos, on Sunday November 1, 2015 at 2pm. 

The event will be headlined by Alibaba GCFR and jointly anchored by Princess Comedian & MC Bambino. Other confirmed acts include Timi Dakolo, Buchi, OzzyBosco, Oke Bakasi, Koffi, Toby Grey, Ronnie, TJ Krays, Mr Johnbull, Gordons and MC Abey. 

This promises to be an evening of fun, networking and inspiration. Therefore we urge you to support us by attending.

Access to the internet is so important that according to a United Nations Report it should be a human right and a priority for all states given that the internet has become an indispensable tool for realizing a range of human rights, combating inequality, and accelerating development and human progress3. Indeed, in some countries, such as Estonia, Finland, France, Greece and Spain internet access has already been made a human right.

"...it was in his watch that almost 300 Nigerian school girls pursuing education in Chibok were abducted, and, one year on, he hasn’t been able to deliver on his promise to bring them back safely.

No doubt, the Chibok Girls abduction and the manner in which his administration approached it would be a sour footnote in his memoirs."

"Women, not trusting other woman whom they hitherto agreed has all the right qualities of a good leader with the task of leading a nation, may be a reflection of women’s views and attitudes towards themselves, and how, over the years, they have internalized the ideas of patriarchy.

By preferring to settle, to fit in, not rattling the status quo and by allowing men lead even when, after careful consideration, they believe themselves and/or other women capable of leading, women are denying the divinity of the feminine.

Going further to make comments such as ‘something is just wrong with the picture...’ goes to show how years of gender inequality, subjugation and suppression has recruited more women into the patriarchal clan and notion of leadership.

What else could be right with the picture?"

Empowering teenage girls with the correct information would not only help them make informed choices, it provides the guarantee that correct information can be past on from mother to child, a friend to another friend or one girl to a group of other girls
