Joy Eze is an African woman,vital voices lead fellow 2013, a rural women leader, social entrepreneur, peace advocate, mentor, motivator, and mediator with more than 10 years experience on these activities.
I have participated in resolving conflicts and bringing peace amongst people and communities in Uzo-Uwani LGA, Enugu State, Nigeria and has on several occasions demonstrated her skills positively, and efficiently to the admiration of members of her community. A case in point being that in 2008,I mediated in a protracted logger-head between Farmers in Uzo-Uwani and nomadic Fulani Cattle Rearers. The Fulani cattle had habitually destroyed farmlands owned by members of the Uzo-Uwani farming Community. This led to disputes, bitter quarrels, fighting of vendettas, killings, and the raping of young women and girls between the two communities. Her mediation brought peace to the two communities and ended their misunderstanding. I organized the women of both communities and trained them as peacemakers and inspired and urged them to prevail upon their husbands and children to ensure that peace reigned in the communities, I believe in collective leadership and collaboration.I have been working in collaboration with Idea Builders Initiative a reputable NGO based in Lagos Nigeria, as a flag bearer of women mentoring women walk in Enugu state Nigeria.
