Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a girl in Liberia?
Aisha Cooper Bruce, a prominent Liberian advocate for adolescent girls’ rights wants to hear from YOU!
Aisha will be in our office this Friday for a video interview with Teen Advisor Eliora Katz, and she’s excited to answer some of your questions! Rack your brain and post questions you would like Aisha to answer in the comments section below. (And make sure you get your questions in by Thursday evening!)
The video of Aisha’s interview will be posted on our blog next Thursday, August 2. Check back to see if your question was asked and to hear all about life for girls in Liberia!
As the Program Director of Sisters With Power (SWP), a girls’ empowerment program of Helping Our People Excel (HOPE), Aisha advocated for the successful passage of the Children’s Law and is now working to support its implementation.
The Children’s Law marked a B I G step forward for Liberia. The law guarantees children’s rights, like their right to health and education. It also offers girls protection from child marriage, and provides victims of domestic abuse with increased support.
Aisha is an Adolescent Girls’ Advocacy & Leadership Initiative (AGALI) Fellow, funded by the UN Foundation and run by the Public Health Institute, and we love the positive work she is doing in Liberia.
We look forward to reading your questions!
Ready, set, ask!
