"I am very happy for the wonderful experience for sensitizing women and girls in my community in Sierra Leon about ONE BILLION RISING Africa to stop violence for women and girls. I involved artists, women of power, and students from different secondary schools so that we can dance, sing, cry, and to say no more rape for women and girls." - Kadiatu Kondeh
I will be rising with my students to raise awareness in Newham, East-London. In the week commencing Monday 11 February we will be discussing equality and women's rights at our weekly Assembly. On Thursday 14 February we will rise! Our voices will be heard and nothing will keep our feet from dancing!" - Katrina McCracken
