The new Country Director of Oxfam Novib – Jan Rogge – visited the Nigerian Women Trust Fund office on June 24, 2015 to discuss further partnership and opportunities. The discussions centered on women performance in the 2015 general elections in line with Women Fund’s efforts in its activities to ensure increase in women elected into public office.
Women Fund outlined its efforts in the areas of support to a few female candidates and its voter education project ‘Vote Na My Power’ in collaboration with Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). The project included voter education workshops across Nigeria, online and radio campaigns.
There were also discussions around strategies for further engagement of political parties, male political leaders and using media alternatives.
