Centre for Women and Adolescent Empowerment

Today, John Minto, Managing Director of Gede met with the Executive Chair and Founder of the Centre for Women and Adolescent Empowerment, Asmau’u Joda. The Centre, which is based in Yola, Adamawa State, is currently working closely with the American University of Nigeria (Yola) in order to provide appropriate support to people who have been displaced by recent fighting in nearby states and have been forced to live in IDP camps. A large part of this work involves sourcing and providing high quality counselling for girls in particular who have gone through traumatic experiences before and during their time in the camps. Gede and the Centre will continue to explore opportunities to work together, given their respective passion for mental illness and mental health.
