I was born into a war torn country and lived there for the first 8 years of my life. I am in my mid 30s now and could never forget the deafening yet frightening sound of a bomb or rocket dropping. And yet still, I can never comprehend how through it all, I would manage to fall back asleep.

During the design thinking session at the #SexForGrades Youth Dialogue, Group 3 identified the following:

ROOT CAUSES OF SEX FOR GRADES

1. Failed educational system
2. Pressure from family members
3. Getting connection
4. Lack of moral values
5. Lack of guidance for students

POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS

1. Advocacy for policy implementation
2. Human rights centre in school
3. Use of technology. Eg, detector device, record device.
4. Frequent sex education program

What is your take on this and what contributions do you have to make?

@peacefirstorg @bbcafrica @iamkayfactor
So much has been said on social media about the issue of #SexForGrades across different tertiary institutions in the country.

But then, what steps are we taking to really address this menace?

What are we SAYING and DOING to ensure the younger generation do not have to be a prey to such issue?

As young leaders, it is important that we never let the conversation to just end online. Take the extra step to act.

In your opinion, how do you think we can put an end to the issue of SEX FOR GRADES?
MEET MARY || "When I first started my period, I was very confused with what was happening with my body. We do not talk about periods in my family, especially not in front of my father. I did not know who to ask if I had any questions. When I would have cramps, I would panick as I thought that I was unwell. My mum was only able to buy disposable sanitary napkins a few times a year when we could afford them. On other occasions I used cloth, which was very uncomforatble and messy. With the IGEA bag, I feel secure, comfortable and confident even during my period. I know that cramps and irregularities are part of the process and nothing to get scared about. I truly happier now that I know that I can take care of myself during that time of the month."

Was honoured by the Young African Leaders Initiative @yalinetworklag and the Peace First Network @peacefirstorg for being a part of the #sexforgrades panel discussion on the 6th of November, 2019. 
I was asked the role of advocacy in curbing sexual violence. We were then asked to suggest at least one sustainable solution to the problem of #sexforgrades. Thank you YALI network, Lagos. Thank you, Peace First. Really grateful for the opportunity to contribute and to learn.

I'm really going to pray and chant long and hard for everything going on within my environments this time... I consider Long Beach as my second home (ever since I attended CSULB, gained friendships with Long Beach residents, and roamed around the city quite a bit) right next to Westminster/Garden Grove. Honestly, that's another reason why I didn't feel like dressing up as a grudge or anything today, in honor of loved ones, friends, and acquaintances. 😢🙏🏼

Sex For Grades has in many ways crippled learning across different tertiary institutions in the country.

We believe it is very important that we as young leaders proffer possible solutions to address this issue.

Your voice and idea is enough to birth a possible solution to the sex for grades issue.

The disciples were scared, and so they had locked themselves away, to hide from the people who had just crucified Jesus

These were the same disciples who had walked with Jesus for three years. They knew Him. They knew His ways. They heard His teachings and saw His miracles, and yet, as soon as Jesus died - they fled, and hid from the world around them

In John 20:19-23, I love that Jesus didn’t just knock on the door and hope that the disciples opened it. He came and stood among them and then showed them His hands and side to reaffirm that He was really the Risen Christ

Jesus’ first words to His disciples were ”Peace be with you” - everything has to start with peace.

Before we are released and sent to change our world’s - peace must exist, because where there is God's peace, there is power

It becomes His will over ours! This Scripture also shows that when Jesus walks into the room, we encounter peace - just as His disciples did that day

This is the day that Jesus’ disciples was given the power of the Holy Spirit. Life began when God breathed into Adam, and now the breath of Jesus imparted an eternal, Spiritual life into His followers because, just like us, we have been given authority to tell others about the Good News so that people’s sins might be forgiven - but it requires boldness to do it, and a peace that passes all understanding to walk where Jesus asks us too

Friends, make time today to read the passage above and allow God to breathe on your circumstances because there are too many of us still hiding away with the doors locked, too scared to go out in fear. Jesus died to set us free. To walk in His love and freedom so that we would change the world with Hope

But remember, everything begins and ends with God's peace

SOLVING A SOCIAL ISSUES IN AN ENVIORMENTALLY FRIENDLY MANNER II The IGEA Bag consists of 2 products: A pair of knickers and a set of three reusable, biodegradable sanitary napkinks. The bag equips a girl to be confident through mensturation for upto 2 years. Each bag costs a small amount of three pounds.By  making a shift away from commercial sanitary napkins that take about 500 -800 years to degrade, we are providing a enviormentally sustainable solution to a social problem faced by communities in Ghana.

Whatever your contribution is, pour your heart in it. ⠀
⠀
It is not things that transform people, it’s the love behind it.⠀
⠀
Every night I fall asleep knowing I gave my heart fully to every task, every human and every place I touched with my present. ⠀
⠀
And by doing that I continue to live in the truth of my being, grounded in love and inner peace.⠀
⠀
Know the space in your heart, it’s the best place to be ♥️

Stillness post... The word meditation used to feel so incredibly foreign to me. I had it all wrong though. I used to think you were either a master or you were a failure. Come to find out, it’s a PRACTICE. I don’t meditate everyday(even though I know 10 min would soothe me) but I do try and find a bit of stillness in my day. Most days it’s that moment once I step out of the shower, like in this photo. Not only does the shower remind me to wash away my ego but it brings me a sense of calm. What you can’t see in this photo was the chaos of 2 beagles 🐶🐶wrestling. However, I sat here for 15 min in true(clean) peace. Even with them accidentally knocking into me. I challenge you to find stillness in your day. Why make the excuse that you don’t know how to meditate. Find your still at a stoplight, in the grocery store checkout line or maybe in carpool lane. Your life is yours, your time is yours, you must put your peace and stillness first.

Pick your battles, you don't have to react to everything that happens. People will shake you from time to time. People are often so inconsiderate of others, you get to decide whether you let that dictate who you are. Protect your peace over all else. #peacefirst #peace #motive #tuesdaythoughts
