Young women from Nigeria promote an innovative way of engaging young people in their communities

As part of the ‘ Her World Her Voice’ programme, an initiative between the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), Generation Unlimited, and UNICEF to amplify the voices of girls and young women and engage them in meaningful opportunities, 137 young women from 8 states in Nigeria joined a three-day online training on U-Report, a key tool that allows young people to share their opinions and receive up to date and accurate information on specific areas that impact them.  

  

In addition, the participants learned more about WAGGGS’ programmes, Generation Unlimited (GenU), and received an in-depth guide on how to use the U-Report platform. 

 


“The U-Report Online Training Hub hosted by NGGA was an interesting and educative training session. It connected me to diverse girls and young women with the same mindset who are keen to speak out on issues that affect our wellbeing as females from across Nigeria, it also taught us to raise our voices on issues that pose as a threat to our wellbeing and ideas for possible solutions.”

“The Online Training Hub was very interactive and enlightening. It's a great feeling to know that learning online can be that effective. It was amazing to hear about Gen-U Nigeria too which shows that a lot of sectors are keen on the development of the young adult as a useful asset in the development of the nation. An interesting part was also getting access to the materials after the training.”
