The woman for women
Safiya Ibn Garba is a Nigerian working for an international NGO – Generations for Peace – in Amman, Jordan; she is the founder of her own NGO, Empowering Women for Excellence, back in her hometown of Kaduna, Nigeria. Inspired by her parents and living conditions, she took on the challenge of educational empowerment for women in her community.
“For me, it’s really strong that people – particularly girls and women – get opportunities, get information to develop themselves and raise their voices towards things they’re concerned about in their communities and do something about it because they have the potential to do it.”
