Meet Victoria.Fashion For Charity first met Victoria in the IDP settlement in New Kuchingoro

village,Abuja where she was one of 20,000 children separated from their entire families in Borno and with out any skill to fend for herself. Victoria enrolled into the skill acquisitions class for sewing and 90 days later,she had been

empowered and was a confident,happy girl. Hers is a testimony of the power of the words; ”teach (wo)men to fish,and they will be fed for a lifetime.”

With over 2 million people affected by the conflict in the North-east,We are in danger of losing a generation.

In Victoria,we can see how that does not have to be the case.We must contin ue to take action and create noise to increase awareness and

involvement in IDP interventions.Let’s save a generation now.Will you join us?
