Some communities in  Niger and Nassarawa states experienced the birth of newness of transformative hope when they received some of the Nigerian Women Trust Fund’s young women leaders. Under the auspices of the Fund, these leaders  impressively organized and anchored community town hall meetings at Ekota community for  students of Bida polytechnic and  Autabalafi community for  students of Bingham University .   As previously publicized, the Young Women Leaders Project (YWLP) supported by National Endowment for Democracy (NED), aims to build in young girls, leadership proficiency and strategic propensity to be responsive and responsible leaders who can engage the political system and subsequently contest and win elections in the future.

Students genuflecting departure plesantries

These meetings created a communicative platform for stakeholders in both communities to address important issues militating against the development of the communities. These issues will consequently be discussed with the State House of Representative Member representing these constituencies during the students learning visit to the State House of Assembly.

For the students in both institutions, these meetings provided them  with an exciting first-hand experience that may have firmly spurred the leadership being within them to becoming agents of an achievable and sustainable equitable governance.
