Building Alheri Village – Yewande Austin

Yewande Aistin

Today we met Yewande Austin and she talked a lot about helping young people from terrorists and human trafficking in Nigeria. She is teaching people how to farm and how to make their own reusable pads. She is also trying to build a village for people who come back from human trafficking and those who live in tents. She also talked about how she held summer camps for girls who want to learn how to speak their minds. Her talk was very inspirational because she uses some of her own money to fund the children, and even though she knows building her village might fail, she keeps trying.
