Millennium Fellowship Project: The Power in Her Hands Project

This project is aimed at empowering women from all spheres of life. I would like to sensitize women on how beautiful,special and powerful they are. This project would serve as a channel to help those who have been physically and sexually abused, by creating workshops or groups where we come together as girls, women, mothers, sisters and friends to share our personal stories and experiences and in turn moivate and encourage each other.This project will also be aimed at promoting reproductive health in women where we enlighten women on the benefits of reproductive health and in turn reduce the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, avoid unwanted pregnancies and improve pre natal and delivery care. Growing up in Nigeria, reproductive health was something not really talked about and I would love to change that with the help of this project. Routine walks would be carried out where we talk about how to reduce the risks of STIs, benefits of pre natal and post natal care, family planning, rape and even share sanitary pads.The walk would also serve as a means to invite the women to the workshops where they can be heard, where they can have an understanding that we as women aren't only designed for the bedroom or kitchen but for something much more great and also where we can come together and have a sense of belonging. Also,free cervical screening tests(pap smear tests) would be carried out twice a year to detect and possibly reduce the frequency of cervical cancer.Free pads would also be shared routinely.
In summary, a woman is an epitome of strength and power and this project would help me ensure we as women have a sense of self worth, respect and dignity to enable us become the best version of ourselves.
