Today, there are still too many girls married off as children or not allowed to go to school; too many women dying of AIDS or forbidden to bank the money they earn.
This International Women’s Day, over forty inspiring activists from across the African continent, are demanding leaders make progress, not promises for women everywhere. Sign their open letter and join the global fight for equality.
Because none of us are equal until all of us are equal.
Today, about 1,000 young women will be infected with HIV. Tomorrow, it will be another 1,000. One week from now, nearly 7,000 young women will have contracted HIV.
The grim news: AIDS isn’t a disease of the past, it’s a crisis now. The great news: we have the means to end it.
Young people are Nigeria’s future. As the nation gets ready to elect its President, we are coming together with one voice to hold our leaders to account.
Enough empty promises – we’re calling on leaders to create 3 million jobs each year and tackle corruption, healthcare, education, gender inequality and agriculture, with investments and policies that unlock the potential of young Nigerians.
Join the non-partisan campaign that’s uniting citizens across the country. #VoteYourFuture and sign the Youth Declaration to demand our leaders invest in Naija’s youth.
