IHSD PROPOSES PARTNERSHIP WITH UNWOMEN NIGERIA TO FACILITATE HUMANITARIAN EDUCATION FOR WOMEN

The Institute for Humanitarian Studies and Social Development (IHSD) acknowledges the vulnerability of women and the challenges they face during emergencies and hence sees the need for stronger women’s involvement in humanitarian education.  It is against this backdrop that the Institute held a proposed partnership meeting with UN Women Nigeria on the 18th of November, 2020.   

The meeting which was held via Zoom had in attendance UN Women Deputy Country Representative, Lansana Wonneh and other UN Women technical team; representative of IHSD training partner United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) Njemanze Ihuoma; the Registrar of the Institute, Dr. Prince Francis Origa and IHSD Head of Communication, Evarista Daudu.

Speaking at the meeting, Dr. Francis accentuated the need for future collaboration between the Institute and UN Women particularly in regards to women advancement and girl child education.

According to him, there is an urgent need to enhance the knowledge capacity of NGOs working primarily on women’s rights and gender issues as well as providing skill training for Women-led NGOs/CBOs and CSOs, amongst others in policy and advocacy. Responding, UN Women Deputy Country Representative, Lansana Wonneh commended the IHSD for her achievements so far and expressed optimism over areas of possible future collaboration especially in the areas of specific project capacity training and in conducting research.
