Mrs. Hannatu Dauda Simon a lawyer, social justice crusader and founder of HANS Centre for Social justice is set to hold a Multidimensional Girl Child & Mentoring summit to commemorate her birthday.
The mentoring will be held under the auspices of her Non governmental Organization (NGO), HANS Centre for Social justice.
The foundation with a creed to trumpet the rights of the most vulnerable, advocate for the education of the Girl Child, empower women and advance the course of societal justice has since its inception, collaborated with lawyers to take up pro-bono cases in defence of incarcerated female inmates who had no legal representation, secured the release of such inmates, organized rehabilitative symposia to foster their reintegration into the society and donated generously towards the rebuilding of their lives outside bars.
Presently, the foundation has in collaboration with Ruth Ochai reached out to a total of three hundred and eight children in Gombe state and supported them with food and clothes.
To celebrate Mrs. Hannatu Dauda Simon’s birthday on 11th April 2023, a commemorative feast designated for orphans and an interactive symposia for released female inmates were held to mark the occasion.
Correspondingly, the founder calls on all female secondary school students between ages 12-19 to take advantage of the forthcoming Multidimensional Girl Child Career & Mentoring Summit to be organized by the foundation for the benefit of one hundred female students herein Gombe State & apply to be selected as participants.
The summit is billed to feature an unprecedented erudite gathering of elite female speakers with the highest academic & professional laurels from distinguished Ministries and Governmental parastatals and is aimed at inspiring, empowering and connecting the next generation of prospective female leaders with preeminent role models in their desired career paths, with gifts, refreshments & special prizes to be made available for participants.
Speaking on her inspiration, Barr. Hannatu affirmed that it is her belief that education is the most powerful tool that can be used to change the world & it is our moral obligation as forerunners to undividedly contribute our quota towards the mental grooming of our children in preparation for their position as future leaders.
She appreciated the resolute commitment of her board of trustees and urged everyone to take the hand of a less privileged and uplift them, as that would not only be an act of benevolence and faith but also one that would create a ripple in the rivulets of eternity, for true and true the great question the Almighty will ask us all when we cross the great divide remains “What did you do for others in your lifetime?”
Speaking further, Hannatu, alluded to a memorable quotation by Dr. Martin Luther King Jnr to wit;
“If I can help somebody as I travel through life, if I can cheer somebody with a word or a song, if I can show somebody he’s travelling wrong, then my living will not be in vain”.
The forthcoming Multidimensional Girl Child & Mentoring summit is open to female students within the 12-19 age bracket and will accommodate 100 participants. Interested persons in this category are advised to click on this link: https://forms.gle/GYYzrC3DmU6MfS2K6 fill in the form and submit.
