According to Sexual Violence facts, one (1) in four (4) girls and one (1) in ten (boys) will have experienced sexual violence before they turn eighteen (18) and only about 5% of these victims will receive any help.

Originally founded as an international Organization in 1978, Global Rights has a sterling reputation as a human rights organization which has worked in partnership with local activists to build grass roots movements that promote and protect the rights of populations marginalized because of gender, ethnicity, race, socio-economic status or disability.

    You are the sunshine – Stevie wonder.

    Today I made peace with the fact that I might have no one to song this song to. Who can deserve such a masterpiece.

    I listened to the Emancipation of Mimi today, one of the albums I got with my savings. It was lovely then as it is now. So much memories jare.

    Where is my medication? Hehehe
