GIRLS IN NIGERIA TELL THEIR STORIES THROUGH POETRY

Our Girl Champion, Maryam Ahmed and Theresa Lola, Nigerian British poet and current Young People's Laureate for London, led a poetry workshop with girls from Nigeria. Over the course of the workshops, the girls analysed and wrote their own poem, which explore the themes of conflict, education, gender and discrimination.

Meet the girls who participated in the workshop and learn about their daily lives through their poems below.
