Heart of Work
A humanitarian leader for peace, passing deep message of love, unity, tolerance, justice, and service in communities to inspire the cultivation of sustainable peace in Nigeria and beyond can describe Precious Ajunwa’s work at Galaxy4Peace.
She is a social entrepreneur with over 10 years’ experience, a feminist, peace advocate and sexuality trainer working on peace building, gender based violence and sustainable development issues; with wealth of experience in creating and managing youth-led projects.
As a humanitarian leader for peace, she passes a deep message of love, unity, tolerance, justice, and service to individuals and communities to inspire the cultivation of sustainable peace in her home country Nigeria.
In 2010, Precious’ zeal and interest in contributing towards building a peaceful society led to her pursuit of a Master’s Degree in Peace and Development Studies from the University of Ilorin, Nigeria. During her course work, she started practicing the knowledge she gained in the classroom not only among her peers but within her environment. Countless mediation, negotiation, and reconciliation activities were championed by her, in addition to peace outreaches in the cause of her study.
Inspired by Mahatma Ghandi’s quotes, “It is through the youths that we see the future, and “If we are to have real peace in the world, we must begin with our children”, Galaxy4Peace was birthed.
The overall goal of her Galaxy4Peace – projects is to raise as many peacebuilders as possible in every community – giving young people the platform to create peace amongst their peers and make right and informed decision about their personal development.
The more tools we can provide for youths to create a healthy relationship among themselves, the better the chances for a hopeful and promising future for our young people and society. Recognizing that sustainable peace is a collective responsibility, G4P is fashioned to contribute to a peaceful, sustainable society by unifying communities in humanitarian service and inspiring youths to be peace agents rather than violent actors.
Peace and Conflict Management is not the only thematic area in which she has wealth of experience; she has been involved in coordinating community level interventions focused on the health and wellbeing of People Living with and Affected by HIV/AIDS and Orphans and Vulnerable Children for more than 4 years; organizing projects geared towards reducing maternal mortality rate in Nigeria, campaigns to end child marriage, and organize effective responses on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights.
Precious offers inspirational talks, lectures and workshops in schools, organizations, work places and at public events, pertaining peace, human rights, health and inclusive sustainable development; hence she loves to share her message within her community, educate and inspire, others to actively engage for the achievement of sustainable development around the world.
