Testimony of a successful lady: "I was very hungry that I had to eat our dog’s leftovers food, but today a qualified lawyer"

I was abandoned by my mother at the age of seven months (7months) with my father and stepmother.

My stepmother was mean. I endured all manner of maltreatments she meted at me.

Sometimes I went hungry for days. She would so starve me that I would be seeing death. On one occasion, I was very hungry that I had to eat our dog’s leftovers food. Our neighbor’s son  caught me eating the dog’s leftover food (eba and egusi) and he told his mother who later that evening invited me to her house and asked me if what her son said was true.

I was so terrified that I begged her not to tell my step mother, because she will kill me if she knew that I ate the dog’s leftover instead of throwing it away. The woman wept and promised to give me food everyday without my stepmother’s knowledge, a promise she kept till we left the compound.

As if starving me was not enough punishment, my Stepmother flogged me mercilessly until I would faint at times. She would also apply pepper in my vagina, eyes, armpit and…

Heavy schoolbags on children causes spinal cord injury, experts warn parents —

Medical experts have cautioned parents against heavy schoolbags on children, saying that heavy loads
may cause spinal cord injury.


Some of the medical practitioners told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Abuja that parents should avoid
packing too many books and other items in children’s schoolbag as most of the bags are carried on the back. Dr Ewot Ndaeyo, the acting Executive Secretary of the FCT Primary Healthcare Board, said that the weight of children
must be considered by parents before packaging any loads in their backpack. He said that primary school pupils who should be between 15 and 25kg were seen in some cases carrying
25kg backpack, noting that “this is not fair, there is need to balance the weight. “So, my advice is that parents should not overload children’s schoolbags; the launch pack gives easy way of carriage, the
schoolbag and launch pack balances the child whenever he or she is walking.” He added that the lunch pack and water should be enough for the child…

FGM And The Law Around The World

Ending FGM requires a multi-sectoral approach that brings together law enforcement agencies, child protection professionals, educators, physicians, traditional and religious leaders, government agencies, advocates, and survivors.  As Equality Now and our partners in the international community continue to work to end FGM by 2030, here’s a look at how the law is struggling and succeeding in some of the most high stakes areas for FGM.   The UNFPA estimates that at least 59 countries have passed laws against FGM, including the United Kingdom, Canada, Denmark, Spain, Norway,  Sweden and New Zealand. Of the 29 countries in Africa where female genital mutilation (FGM) is traditionally practiced, 26 have laws prohibiting FGM. Among African nations with laws prohibiting FGM, penalties range from monetary fines to a minimum of three months to life in prison. Others continue to struggle to enforce legislation.
