A as build up to the International Women’s Day 2024 celebration, the Africa Young Voices (AYV) Media Empire has revealed plans to get all its beautiful women broadcasters to run all its major television shows.

Commencing Friday March 1, on to the main International Women’s Day on March 8, all major shows on TV and Radio would be produced and presented by the Company’s female staff, hosting all-female guests to discuss women’s issues.

AYV’s Deputy Director of News and Current Affairs, Elizabeth Momoh said: “The time for change is now! Join us as we build up to 8th March, 2024 for International Women’s Day, rallying behind the global call to “Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress. Take a stand and join the conversations presented by our beautiful women presenters and reporters, with our women guests as they discuss all-women’s-issues.

“All our leading shows on TV including Wake Up Sierra Leone, Front Page and Sports, will be produced and presented by women, with female guests. Most interestingly, we will hold mentorship session for girls which will identify schools and communities where girls would be invited from diverse backgrounds.

“We will also organise a mentorship session at AYV compound where girls can interact with female leaders, business women/female entrepreneurs, Civil Society Organisations, ministers and/or members of parliament. We will develop a structured program where girls can ask questions and receive guidance on various topics such as education, career and empowerment, to be followed by inspirational talks and questions and answers sessions to inspire and empower the girls”. Madam Elizabeth Momoh informed.

She explained that gender equality remains the greatest human rights challenge, especially in this part of the world, adding that investing in women is a human rights imperative and cornerstone for building inclusive societies.

This according to her, is what AYV has chosen to do. The Company has already invested heavily and created a wide platform for young people, especially women, to realise their talent.

At AYV, a large percentage of its staff is women. The mentorship session for girls as part of the International Women’s Day celebration serves as a valuable Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative for AYV Media Empire by demonstrating the company’s dedication to promoting gender equality, empowering girls, and making a positive impact in the community.

AYV is committed to social development and the creation of opportunities for everyone including marginalized groups. Therefore, by providing mentorship and guidance to girls from different schools and communities, AYV is empowering the next generation of women leaders.

Through interactions with female leaders and role models, girls can gain valuable skills, confidence, and inspiration to pursue their dreams and inspirations. This mentorship session will offer them access to valuable insights, knowledge, and resources they may not have otherwise.

AYV’s mentorship session contributes to promoting gender equality by highlighting the importance of investing in girls’ education and empowerment. By addressing gender disparities and advocating for equal opportunities, the company is actively working towards building a more inclusive society.

Engaging with schools and communities to invite girls to the mentorship session demonstrates AYV’s commitment to community development. By reaching out to local stakeholders and involving them in the initiative, the company fosters stronger community ties and contributes to positive social change.

Investing in girls’ education and empowerment has long-term benefits for society as a whole. By equipping girls with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to succeed, AYV is contributing to a more prosperous and equitable future for Sierra Leone.

Ensuring women’s and girls’ rights across all aspects of life is the only way to secure prosperous and just economies, and a healthy planet for future generations.

One of the key challenges in achieving gender equality by 2030 is an alarming lack of financing with a staggering USD 360 billion annual deficit in spending on gender-equality measures.

The COVID pandemic, geopolitical conflicts, climate disasters, and economic turmoil have pushed an extra 75 million people into severe poverty, since 2020. This could lead to more than 342 million women and girls living below the poverty line by 2030, making immediate action crucial.
