In order to achieve this, the participants are taken through series of activities, which include leadership workshops, empowerment sessions with leading women from various sectors, industries and non-profit initiatives (including government), achievement of media projects designed to raise awareness about empowerment of the girl-child, and, finally, self-development sessions on important topics ranging from career planning and financial literacy to personal hygiene and sexual reproductive health.”
Amore’s very own Naya Rhythm served as a panelist on the opening day of LEAD camp. Naya sat alongside other women in the media industry who have made noteworthy accomplishments in Nigeria’s media sector.
She represented Amore as LEAD’s Media Mentor, in which she led a group of 6 LEAD scholars in the production of an official JAN-Amore public service announcement.
