I started this site as a way to keep family and friends updated on my journey, my work in the anti-trafficking field, and so much more.
My name is Sarah and I am a Nigerian traveler. I love to travel and explore the world and I get to couple that with my work. I am a consultant on advocacy and anti trafficking issues, a cultural mediator, and most recently, a researcher. I believe that our duty as stewards of the world we live in is to do justly and to defend the helpless and vulnerable near and far.
One of my roles is providing support for survivors of trafficking and I have been able to partner with several NGOs around the world in doing so. Thank you to those of you who have been part of my journey and sponsors who made that happen.
I am often invited to provide training and seminars on understanding human trafficking, how to help survivors, and providing cultural mediation.
I have heard hundreds of stories of sexual assault and violation from women and quite a number of men and while I cannot help every person that has been assaulted, I do my best to help those I encounter. Sometimes a smile, a hug or few and a listening ear speaks more volume than a thousand words. Knowing the right people and organisation for referrals is extremely important because they can continue the follow up and provide assistance that I can’t.
Over the last decade, my education and work have taken me to more than 30 countries on five continents, and the journey continues :). Traveling and working cross-culturally helped me to see more clearly some of the injustices in our society and how they transcend barriers.
Please us the contact form if you have any questions related to this or would like to connect with me about my work.
Remember, we only get one life to live in this age, make yours count! How will you make a positive difference today?
