Watch the video profile created by the Islamic Development Bank for WASL partner and founder of Allamin Foundation for Peace and Development in Nigeria, Mrs. Hamsatu Allamin as she wins the IDB’s prize for women’s contribution to development.
Dr. Fatima Akilu spoke to ICAN’s Aya Nader about how extremism affects women in her country, discussed rehabilitation and reintegration of extremists, and shared what motivates her to keep the fight for peace ignited.
ICAN and WASL are proud to call Hamsatu a partner in the quest for peace and human security.
“We are proving that when you invest in trusting women, the returns are extraordinary. Hamsatu is the perfect example,” says Sanam Naraghi Aderlini.
