In order to achieve one of our goals in addressing the ills in the society caused by poverty and lack of education affecting many residents of low cost housing areas, Warien Rose organised an end of the year programme for residents of Ajeromi Ifelodun Community.
This was done in collaboration with the Intergovernmental Action Group Against Money Laundering in West Africa (GIABA) – an arm of ECOWAS and National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP).
The programme addressed the basics of money laundering, how big criminals trick young people and children into serving as channels and couriers for nefarious activities and how parents can help track and prevent such predators.
The DPO of Festac Police Station was also present at the event, where he addressed the security risks associated with the subject vices as well as give tip security measures to avert crimes such as money laundering and human trafficking in the society.
The programme was well accepted by the community residents and they were very glad to have the initiative in the area. They hoped for similar innovative programmes by Warien Rose Foundation and also pledge their support towards disseminating the new information they received to neighbouring communities.
The President of Warien Rose Foundation – Barrister Efe Anaughe appreciated the participants of the programme and extended her gratitude to the partners on the programme – GIABA and NAPTIP. She said that she is now more driven to move forward stronger on the mission of Warien Rose, which include eradicating money laundering, human trafficking and domestic violence which have slowed down the development of the country for decades.
