DR RITA  NWOKEJI 

 

 

 
DR RITA  NWOKEJI 
 
THE HUMANITARIN WE SHOULD ALL KNOW
Dr Rita Nwokeji  Nwokeji is a humanitarian who has dedicated most of her life serving people from all walks of life. She regularly organises medical missions to Nigeria using her own resources single handedly to cater for thousands of villagers who are less privileged, giving them free medical treatment and feeding them out of her own pocket. The philanthropist has also under the Rotary Club of Hendon, United Kingdom volunteered to go to India in 2018 and 2019 to help with the immunization of children against polio for which she received an award for Overseas humanitarian services from Fancy Television.
The retired nurse manager spent 22 years of her life working in the UK National Health Service and providing invaluable services to clients with severe and enduring mental health problems. She has a wealth of experience working with client groups of people stigmatised in the society. She helped many patients integrate back into the society and live more fulfilling lives. Her current focus is creating awareness for how to live healthy with diabetes.
A great woman of substance, she continues to inspire nations by volunteering in various sectors and working with grassroots organisations. She is a volunteer member of Diabetes UK campaigning for funding for research into finding cure for the disease and helping people live with and manage diabetes effectively as well as creating awareness to the dangers and complications of diabetes if it is not managed properly. She is also a member of the Royal College of Nursing and regulated by Nursing and Midwifery Council, United Kingdom.
She has a BSc in mental health nursing from Middlesex University in United Kingdom as well as a B.A/Education majoring in English language and literature in English from University of Ife Nigeria. She also holds a Masters degree in Education administration and planning from the University of Port Harcourt in Nigeria plus a post graduate certificate in education from the University of East London. As a mentor and role medal, she taught young children in primary as well as secondary schools for a few years, inculcating in them the values of good citizenship, hard work, good morals and enviable work ethics before moving to the united Kingdom.
State of women in leadership
Although more women are earning college degrees than men, Dr Rita  Nwokeji feels they are still under-represented in higher education as tenured faculty and full professors and in higher positions such as deans and presidents. She recognises the fact that women of colour occupy a small percentage of leadership positions. Significant improvements have been made in closing the gap in government positions yet women are more likely to occupy the least powerful positions. Of the 50 current governors in the US only 6 are women and 2 are women of colour. In Africa as a whole there is dearth of women in such powerful positions. Having said that, there is no doubt that women are making their mark in various leadership positions around the world. She is an advocate for women achieving their potentials in all fields of endeavour.
Making the world a better place
Even though Dr Rita  Nwokeji supports several charitable organisations, she would like to support more and volunteer or promote their good causes. She is also a firm believer in supporting local businesses. As a community leader she gets involved in peace keeping initiatives as an ambassador of Academy of Universal Global Peace(AUGP)

About modern slavery
 
Conservative numbers estimate that more than 40 Million people are trapped in modern day slavery around the world today, mainly women and children. This amount is larger than the number of slaves during the 400 years of transatlantic slave trade. Slavery exists in all countries of the world, in every postcode, and it is now considered the most pressing social problem of our times.
 
As you read this today, people are being sold and bought into slavery, people are being born and are dying as slaves. This crime is most of the time hidden in plain sight, in a diverse range of industries and activities.  Every 30 seconds a person is trafficked in some part of the world. Human trafficking is now the second largest organized crime, generating profits of US$150 billion annually. Traffickers target the vulnerable, the poor and those desperate for an opportunity to improve their lives.  Modern Slavery is a transnational crime and as such requires a transnational response, but it is also happening on our doorstep. Only a small percentage of slaves are ever helped and therefore there is a lot of work to be done to rescue victims and to stop modern slavery from happening in the first place.
 
The complexity of this problem calls for collaboration across society. Governments and NGOs are critical, but cannot solve the problem alone. Businesses can play a significant role through Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives by providing volunteers, financial support, training and job opportunities for survivors. The corporate sector can also tackle this problem and strengthen their own brands by addressing modern slavery in their supply chains through stronger policies and greater scrutiny of their local and global suppliers. Individuals also have a personal social responsibility to fight modern slavery by raising awareness in their circle of influence, by becoming conscious consumers that support ethical brands and practices, and by becoming alert to the signs of slavery around them in order to identify and help potential victims.
 
 
About YouCanFreeUs
 
YouCanFreeUs works in both prevention and victim rehabilitation.
Awareness is the first step to prevention. Through a range of innovative events, activities and campaigns, YouCanFreeUs brings light to the issue of modern slavery, impacting a wide demographic.  Because YouCanFreeUs believes education is key in the eradication of modern slavery, it has also produced an educational curriculum called LIBERTAS, which aims at protecting the youth of today against this evil, as well as empowering them with substantial knowledge and understanding in order to help them to take a stand against it.  

YouCanfreeUs rescues and rehabilitates victims of sex trafficking through strategic intervention hubs, safe houses and training centers in different parts of the world. Also, it will launch in the next few months, a dedicated area to address child labour, a crime responsible for the exploitation of approximately 152 million children.

Modern Slavery is the fight of our generation.  Are you in this fight? Give purpose to your life and become a modern-day abolitionist! There are so many ways in which you can contribute to this cause.
