Keeping It Real (KIR) Foundation
Keeping It Real (KIR) Foundation has begun a one month online campaign on Twitter through our tweets using the hashtag #March4Women to promote social reformation concerning the current position and importance of gender parity especially in developing countries in Africa; where the gender equality gap is really obvious. The campaign will call for gender-balanced leadership, respect and value difference, develop more inclusive and flexible cultures rooting out workplace bias.
KIR Foundation will also organize a speaking event at the Government Girls Secondary School Oromineke in Rivers State in Southern Nigeria. The speakers for this event include Mrs. Ibiso West, who is the UNICEF Desk Representative at the Rivers State Ministry of Education. Mrs. Ibiso West will be speaking to the girls on 'The Importance of Women in Society'. Also speaking will be Jennifer Nkem-Eneanya, a Lawyer, and Content Manager for @TouchPH, a visitor, travel and lifestyle guide. She is also an Editor and Writer. The event will have special guests from IHS Towers to offer corporate social responsibility services towards the event.
KIR Foundation and IHS Towers will donate books to the school and the girls.
