Mahama Tiah Abdul-Kabiru
Being raised from a traditional home where superstition and negative stereotypes associated with women are dominant, i did not find anything wrong with women and children not consulted in decision making and i did not see anything wrong with the incessant beating and molesting of women and children because i only attributed that to correctional measures. Life and time has thought me lessons with the attainment of higher education. This has motivated me in my work as development work to fully integrate women and children into the work for sustainable development. I have organized several sensitization and capacity building workshops for women and the foundation of development is dependent on women and children. I have being a leader in all my training process and was even the then administrative head of students at the University for Development Studies in Ghana and i have come to realize also that the advocacy work for the eradication of GBV depends on me, you, her/him and them.
