At Stand To End Rape, we understand that giving back is at the core of humanity and we love to recognize our volunteers, who go above and beyond in the fight against sexual violence and actively contributing to the day to day running of our initiative.
This month, we would like to recognize Fehintoluwa who is a devoted volunteer. He is a graphics designer working with the communications department at STER. In getting to know more about Fehintoluwa, we asked him a few questions:
What or who inspires you?
Tolu’s security man inspires him. Tolu says “he is married to 4 wives and still sane”. Tolu believes the ability to do that should be taught in schools.
What is your Mantra?
Tolu lives by the quote “ Live and let live”
What do you do for fun?
Tolu loves to spend time working on his Laptop
How can we address the Gender-Based Violence (GBV) problem in our society?
Tolu believes GBV can be solved by educating the younger generation from elementary school and dismantling the patriarchy
What advice would you give your 15-year-old self?
He would tell his 15-year-old self “Don’t do it for free”.
What is your definition of a ‘Safe Nigeria’?
A “Safe Nigeria” to Tolu is one where he can help an accident victim to the hospital at midnight and not be mistaken for the culprit by the security agency.
STER appreciates all your hard work. Thank you for being part of us. Keep it up Tolu!
