In the following our interview with Dr. Oti Adepeju of the Global Youth Leadership and Girl-Child Foundation in Nigeria, engaged against youth enemployment, and for girls and women empowerment in Nigerian society. Dr. Adepeju explained us the reasons why there is so much un-employement in her country, and presented her projects and strategies to address the phenomenon. Would like to thank her for her time and the photos she sent us. To know more you can visit youtube and facebook. For a healthy society we need educated women and girls. This is the future we have to dream about and struggle for.
Our Vision: GYLGF envisioned a society where the potentials of youth and girl-child are fully developed and supported to become socially responsible, responsive, able to lead self and contribute meaningfully to healthy society.
