The 8th of March every year is marked as the International Women’s Day. On this great day, women the world over are celebrated. The SELL resource team wants to congratulate all women especially those that are our allies. The gender component of the SELL programme encourages us to treat women with dignity and respect and protect them especially the girl child that is vulnerable to abuses. Such abuses may include; child labour, trafficking, early marriage, female genital mutilation, sexual abuse among others.
On 9th march 2012, Moses of the SELL Resource Team went to Jos, plateau state Nigeria for a workshop on Trauma Healing, details of this will be brought to you in our next week’s update.
