WIDOWS’ DAY

There are a lot of disturbing stories on the plight of widows in Nigeria and the world at large.

Husbands snatched away by the cold hands of death leaving these women most times with little or nothing to continue. I personally know some widows – My Aunty who is like my second mum…..

NUTRITION AND FOOD SECURITY

Food security exists when all people at all times have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food.

Jun 20, 2018 | SDG Goal.

Today, the main concern in the agricultural sector is to provide simultaneously enough food, in quantity and quality, to meet the nutritional needs of a growing population and to conserve natural resources for future generations. When we say Food security, we are also talking about the availability and equal distribution of nutritious food.

When healthy food becomes scarce, people shift focus to less nutritious options thereby increasing the risk of an unhealthy lifestyle which can lead to reduced productivity, less immunity and impaired physical and mental development.

SHP Campaign

May 09, 2018 | A Movement.

Reality

Hello everyone.

Do you know that the average Nigerian family earns N16666 monthly and the average number of daughters in a Nigerian family is 2. The preceding statistic implies that each family would have to spend N540 on sanitary pads for their daughters. This is a luxury that most families in Nigeria cannot afford even as Inflation continues to rise without a corresponding increase in income.

Now why am I saying this? I want to introduce to you the Supporting Her Prime Campaign (SHP), a movement I believe in, which is targeted towards providing teenage girls and female adults with sanitary items necessary for them to live wholesome lives. We are a group of young people who have come together to provide a solution to the problem of unhealthy sanitary practices amongst young girls and inability to afford sanitary items.  We aim to solve this problem by providing sanitary pads to ladies who cannot afford them and giving them the right information on menstrual hygiene.

VULNERABLE PEOPLE

Mar 14, 2018 | SDG Goal.

The first world countries described as “Developed” often categorize third world countries as “Developing”,  however lack of material wealth does not really indicate that a country is deprived. Also a strong economy in a highly developed nation does not mean much especially when a significant percentage of the population is struggling to cross the poverty line and manage vulnerability.

THE BYSTANDER EFFECT

Mar 05, 2018 || Support Awareness


“Sometimes the size of a crisis alone can breed apathy. Large numbers tend to numb and paralyze rather than move people to action. In the midst of the refugee crisis, how can you see the individual? How can you help others do the same?”


As part of the World Help Volunteer and member, it’s a responsibility to write about the challenges people face and bring necessary help their way.

Today’s focus is about the bystander effect, learning to see the individual admist the situation and crowd.

Support others…..

As individuals how can we see the individual despite the situation. For instance a Pakistani who migrates from his home land to your country; what constariants limits you. Would you turn the other cheek? Would you help him, welcome her into your home without being judgemental…..

In a world where terrorism is taking a high toll, how can we empower individuals from terrorist nations, and how can we encourage others to do so.

Do share your thoughts.

Cheers

A HOPE FOR TOMORROW 

Feb 28, 2018 | A Refugee Story

Because of You, Refugees are Finding Strength in Faith

Your continued support of Iraqi refugees is doing more than saving lives—it is transforming this region of the world with the hope of eternity.

Nada and Marliene are two women whose lives have been forever impacted because you chose to reflect Christ’s love in the midst of this crisis. Recently, these women were able to share what the past two years have looked like through their eyes.

Marliene gazed down at the floor as she searched for words to describe what she experienced the day ISIS forced her from her home. Nada looked straight ahead and forced a smile. Even still, the words were hard to find.

LOVE; A CATALYST FOR FOOD SECURITY

Feb 20, 2018 | A Call To Action

“LOVE is our true destiny. We do not find the true meaning of Life by ourselves alone….We find it with another”.

These words from Thomas Merton ring loudly in our ears this beautiful Valentine’s Day morning as we reflect on how love affects food security in Nigeria.

Turn Excuses Into Creative Thinking – Support 

Jul 20, 2017 | An Action Call.

What’s your excuse?

Rick Warren wrote:

Whether it was Sarah claiming she was too old to be used by God or Jeremiah claiming he was too young, God rejected their excuses. – “Don’t say that,” the Lord replied, “for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and take care of you.” (Jeremiah 1:7-8 NLT)

Maybe you’ve believed that you needed a special “call” from God, and you’ve been waiting for some supernatural feeling or experience, but God has already stated his call repeatedly. God doesn’t want to use just some of his people; he wants to use all of his people. We’re all called to be on mission for God. He wants his whole church to take the whole gospel to the whole world. 

Can be a little challenging, yea? 

If you want to be like Jesus, you must care about what he cares about most and you must have a heart for the whole world! You can’t be satisfied with just your family and friends coming to Christ. There are over six billion people on earth, and Jesus wants all his lost children found. 
The Great Commission is your commission, and doing your part is the secret to living a life of significance. Jesus said, “Only those who throw away their lives for my sake and for the sake of the Good News will ever know what it means to really live!” (Mark 8:35 TLB)”

Are we ready to turn those excuses into reality? 

Let’s go! 

Cheers.
