Anita Ayidu Adesiyan has been appointed as the new Country Manager for MTV Staying Alive Foundation in Nigeria. The Staying Alive Foundation is MTV’s international content-producing and grant-giving HIV prevention initiative with a mission to equip young people with the knowledge, confidence and resources to make informed choices about their sexual and reproductive health and avert HIV.
On the appointment, Anita said via her LinkedIn page “The work we do at MTV SAF is such an important one for young people and I am truly honoured to be entrusted with this huge responsibility.
The task of educating young people about their sexual reproductive health and combating stigmatization through reappropriation and fostering of behaviour change is daunting but one we must do to effect the change we desperately need. I’m excited about this new role and grateful to everyone who has helped me on this journey. Here’s to breaking more glass ceilings and changing the world in the little ways we can.
Congratulations to #Her!??????
