Trip To Nigeria

Presentation

The Enitan Story will be heading to Nigeria in September of 2015. Bukola Oriola will be discussing the risks of traveling abroad to public and private college students in Lagos State. The idea is to not discourage the student dreams of thriving abroad, but to be prepared for the worst-case scenario. http://www.bukolaoriola.com/bringingthestorybackhome/

Why These Students:

 

The tour will focus on higher education students. They are considered the armour bearers and most vulnerable group in the society. The students also have the best opportunity to carry the message to the younger generation and also to leverage it to the older members of the community. http://newtelegraphonline.com/a-journalist-as-victim-of-trafficking/

The Presenter:

 

Oriola is founder, The Enitan Story and Producer, Imprisoned Show. The Enitan Story is a local nonprofit organization in Minnesota, United States with a mission to advocate for victims and empower survivors of human trafficking. http://enitan.org/

 

Imprisoned Show is one of the organization’s programs dedicated to educating the public about human trafficking around the world. http://www.imprisonedshow.com/ Since the launch of Imprisoned Show at one of the local TV stations in Minnesota, she has produced over 20 episodes featuring expert opinions, events, public presentations students, members of the local law enforcement, nonprofit organizations, attorneys and advocates to help victims reach out for help. “I believe that education is the greatest tool for preventing this heinous crime in our communities. One of the episodes on Imprisoned Show featured the Hubert Humphreys fellows at the University of Minnesota from Malaysia, Vietnam, and Nepal. Evaluating and discussing various forms of providing services, in addition to advocacy, will further help both government and nongovernmental efforts to effectively combat the crime. It was also documented as President Barak Obama’s accomplishments in fighting human trafficking in the United States in 2013. http://www.state.gov/j/tip/rls/reports/2014/225149.htm
