Introducing myself and my journal: Africa Unite!

About Me:
I am a young energetic, happy and loving person. I am a wife and mother of two adorable children (boy and girl). I am my mother's last child but don't think i am spoilt so don't judge me on that hahaha. I am a Cameroon who now lives in South Africa, Johannesburg and i am passionate about development and empowerment of the poor and marginalised of our socieities. I will like the question the word development and ask what it means but i will leave this discussion for another time. I love my work but love my family more. I do alot of travelling in my work which sometimes frustrates me alot since it impacts on my values on spending time with family but again this is how life has made it. Being black you have to work really hard and being a woman in addition you have to work twice as hard for people to take you seriously. I look foward to going back home one day and make a difference in the lives of the disadvantaged in my community like i am doing presently in Southern Africa. i strongly criticise the lack of women in the political arena of our societies but i hate to see women that have the opportunities to make their voices heard or change the lives of other women and they don't do that.

My Passions:
changing people's lives

My Challenges:
Culture, politics, power struggle, finances

My Vision for the Future:
Change the lives women and children. increase participation of women in politics in Cameroon, make a contribution to change in Africa

My Areas of Expertise:
Governance, Development, Peacebuilding, Communication/media

Thanks - Women's right important

Hi Olu, Thanks alot for the word of welcome. How is Lagos these days. I see you work on the Abuse of Rights? This is very interesting. I think the rights of women and children are lost within our cultures. That of the physically challenged are not taken into account in alot of our countries by the so call "States" that are there to protect them. Who ever ask for opinions of women and children in a community initiative not to talk of national one. In Cameroon i don't think we have upto 5 ministers who are women i guess because they think women are not good enough and to satisfy the international pressure they will put one or two women in positions like "Minister of Women's Affair or Social Affairs" as if we don't know how to manage finances. Infact the best financial managers are women and you can even see that in homes. I wish our governments will re-think their strategy and start getting value for money.

GOOD

Oh dear, Lagos is good and I am looking forward to traveling to South Africa early next month as I will be attending a training for transformation in Cape town but Johannesburg is far away from Cape town, it a year program and I believe we will meet even if briefly. Thank God we are becoming enlightened these days and all women need do is demand, if we do not demand we may not have what we want, I tell you, this is long over due, all we need do is walk into it now, may God help us as we help ourselves......
Loads of love from Nigeria my dear.
