Public Story
Kudirat Initiative for Democracy
     The Kudirat Initiative for Democracy (KIND) was founded in Lagos, Nigeria by Hasfat Abiola-Costello in 1997 to honor Kudirat Abiola, her mother and a leading democracy activist who was killed by soldiers during the period of military rule.
The Junior Kudra Program is an expansion of KIND's Young Women Leadership Program. The name KUDRA is a derivation of the Arabic "Qudra" that symbolizes power. The name conveys the program's intention to help restore young women to their full potential by empowering them with information, leadership skills and tools to effectively engage in transforming their lives, communities and eventually their nation.

Note: This work was funded by a fellowship from Global Fund for Children (Grassroots Girls Initiative) and the Nike Foundation (Girl Effect) in partnership with the International Center of Photography.
