Laide Bakare who has been in the movie industry for over 15 years has launched a charity foundation called the Laide Bakare Foundation.
The foundation will focus and direct some energy in favour of the girl child.
Laide Bakare Foundation is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) set up by the actress in conjunction with her trustees to put focus, emphasis and concentration on the girl child in the fight against the scourge of early marriages that leads to complications in the girl child as a result of getting Vesicovaginal Fistula (VVF).
Vesicovaginal Fistula (VVF), is an abnormal fistulous tract extending between the bladder and the vagina that allows the continuous involuntary discharge of urine into the vaginal vault. It often has a profound effect on the patient's emotional well-being.
VVF is often caused by childbirth, when a prolonged labor presses the unborn child tightly against the pelvis, cutting off blood flow to the Vesicovaginal wall.
With this background into what VVF and the causes of VVF are, the Laide Bakare Foundation is set up to sensitize and create awareness on the need to educate the girl child. Abolish early child marriages and educate the girl child.
