A gender-based non-governmental organisation (NGO), the FAME Foundation, will hold a conference on human trafficking and social/political emancipation of women.
The event will take place on Saturday, September 29, 2018.
Issues of human trafficking and women’s impact in the society will be the focus of discussion at the upcoming one-day conference organised by the Foundation in its annual conference which holds at the Cinema Hall, Cyprian Ekwensi Arts and Culture Centre, in Abuja.
In a release issued by organisers of the event themed, ‘Liberate, Educate, Vitalise’, the panelists and speakers will deliberate on ways to reduce or completely eradicate human trafficking, as well as discuss the need for women to continue to make meaningful impact in the socio-political and economic emancipation of the country without restrictions.
The release said that Director General of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), Dame Julie Okah-Donli, Minister of Sports & Youths Development, Solomon Dalung and Halima Mamman-Daura, among others dignitaries are expected at the event to contribute to women liberation.
Founder of FAME Foundation, Ms Aderonke Bello said, “Topics for the conference were timely, considering the issues of migration to dangerous parts of the world where women are abused with impunity and little or non-existent human rights.
“There is a compelling need for women to be better coordinated in order to be better appreciated in the society most especially as the 2019 general elections draw near.”
