Love and Care for People in association with Women of Love are pleased to invite you to the very first Girls Summit in Ireland themed:

“Securing the Future of our Girl Children:
EndingChild/Forced Marriage and Reproductive Abuse”.

The purpose of the summit is to raise public awareness about child/forced marriage and reproductive abuse and what’s more, it is free to attend.

Child/forced marriage and Reproductive Abuse are a human right violation as it threatens the lives, future aspirations and opportunities of girls and women around the world. Annually,over 10 million girls and women are forced into a marriage before their eighteenth birthday;and some marry as young as eight.

Child/forced marriage and reproductive abuse are both the cause and consequence of gender-based violence, poverty and the unavoidable inequality that girls and women experience every day. But with access to an education, skill acquisition and training, girls and women will be able to create a better society for themselves and the world.

Speakers include:

– H.E. Olusola Iginla – Chargé d’Affaires, Embassy of Nigeria Ireland.
– Canadian Ambassador to Ireland –H.E. Kevin Vickers.
– Young Activist – David Ogumefu and other high profile speakers.

We are also very happy to bring you the multi-award winning human rights activist and UN woman Kirthi Jayakumar founder Red Elephant Foundation. Kirthi’s work focuses on Women’s Rights, International Law, Human Rights and Peace.

Ini Usanga, an international multi-award winning peace and human rights advocate who is also the founder of Love and Care for People will outline why child/forced marriage happens, and Love and Care for People’s work in raising awareness about child/forced marriage and reproductive abuse. She will outline the organisations support initiatives for victims and survivors and their campaign about ending child/forced marriage. Ini believes child / forced marriage and reproductive abuse can be stopped if we all unite and work together.

Moderators for the summit are Lady Esse Agesse – Founder Women of Love and Annegret Winkel – PRO Love and Care for People. Presentations will be followed by questions and answers.

We invite you to join us on October 28 as we unite and dialogue on initiatives to put an end to child/forced marriage and reproductive abuse!
