Despite repeated death threats, Hafsat has continued in her attempt to make a change, preaching anti-violence in areas where female voices are often suppressed. She founded the organisation Choice for Peace, Gender and Development, which supports young people and women who have lost family in attacks and abductions.

There is hope for Nigeria with more fearless people like our WCW Hafsat Mohammed.
