Carter Center Human Rights: How Can We Help the Victims of Boko Haram?

Reverend Esther Ibanga is the senior pastor of Jos Christian Missions International and the president and founder of Women Without Walls Initiative (WOWWI), an organization established to address the persistent ethno–religious conflicts in Plateau state. Under her leadership, WOWWI has provided a platform for women across different ethnic and religious groups to activate their voices in the call for peace.

Watch below to hear about Ibanga’s trip to Washington, D.C. with the Carter Center’s Human Rights Program and her thoughts on what is needed to help the survivors of Boko Haram successfully recover and reintegrate into Nigerian society.

The Carter Center participates in hosting Human Rights Defenders Policy Forums, which bring together human rights activists from all over the world. President and Mrs. Carter, the U. N. high commissioner for human rights, and the special representative on human rights defenders have keynoted these conferences.
