Let's Stand Tall, empowering young girls

 

Divas Dynasty is an organization based in Lagos that promotes the success and development of women.  It recently held a seminar, Let's Stand Tall, to empower and educate young girls. Let's Stand Tall aimed to promote sexual integrity and character development among teenagers.

 

The seminar hosted discussions and film screenings, including A Place of Peace (from the Na Wa film festival) by Michael Sokolar. In addition, Let's Stand Tall had speakers explaining the dangers of human trafficking. A representative from the International Organization for Migration ( IOM) provided young girls and students with useful information on the ills of sexual exploitation in Europe.  Sponsored by local and international companies and agencies, Let's Stand Tall has incorporated the anti-human trafficking awareness program agenda as a follow-up initiative of the Na Wa festival funded by the European commission.
