Say NO to all forms of VIOLENCE against WOMEN / GIRL CHILD
You are here: About us - Secretariat





A nation without a woman is as well as a desert.  This is because women are the symbol of productivity, fruitfulness and of course, development.  In fact, without them, the world would have been bored and stagnant.  No wonder the creation was not complete without women. 

Late Alhaja Roli Raliat Daniju has, among others, fulfilled God’s purpose by distinguishing herself in her contribution to nation’s building and development.  Alhaja Raliat who started her career in Nigerian Breweries has over the years pioneered several associations among which are, Ajegunle Community Project, National Union of Food and Beverages and Tobacco employees (women’s wing), Society for Women and Aids in Africa (SWAAN) Nigeria Chapter, Professional Business Women in Nigeria, Lagos State Chapter. She was also, until her demise, a member of the board of trustees of Development Information Network (DevNet).  

In her unending quest to better the lives of the people at the grassroots, she has played a tremendous role most especially in the area of enlightening women.  According to her, “what actually made me to join the trade union was to fight for women who were given little or no regards in their places of work. With the help of the trade union, women were given six weeks before and after delivery with full payment”.

Among other achievements, Alhaja Raliat, as a grass-root mobiliser of women and youth development, has piloted several campaigns on women economic empowerment, political participation, violence against women and the girl-child.

So far, Alhaja Raliat has been able to educate women on their voting rights and also on HIV/AIDS campaign and awareness in local communities. Worthy of note among her achievements is her ability of being able to convince the young Hausa girls in Ajegunle Community who had no interest in Western education, to embrace it.
