Steve in a statement explained that the event also served as a platform to present prizes to finalists of an essay competition instituted by AHF in the state.

The first prize went to Constance Mboto of Government Secondary School, Calabar, While Archibong Peace Etim of Government Secondary School, Henshaw and, Bassey Pereka of Model High School were joint second prize winners.

The foundation’s Country Program Director, Dr. Echey Ijezie, said ‘‘AHF believes that through dialogue with girls and other stakeholders about girls’ rights, we can learn about what works best to protect them and to create a supportive environment for their flourishing.’’

Dr. Echey added that ‘‘Questions continued to be asked about how we keep schools safe for children given the security challenges. How can we ensure that children have access to safe and effective learning spaces? How would we end school-related gender based violence (SRGBV)?’’

According to him, ‘‘the objective of the event is to be able to rally the voices of every stakeholder, for our girls to have the right to education in safety and dignity.
