Since 2014, Mary Dinah has been focused on protecting human rights, social justice, education and gender equality. This includes her current intervention, providing over 100,000 school meals, sanitary towels and dignity kits to young girls in primary schools within Lagos State, Nigeria. The school feeding and non-food item distribution has resulted in a significant increase in school attendance by girls in the community. Also, their overall wellbeing, physical and mental health, confidence, self esteem and academic performance has had major improvements. An educated girl is also less likely to agree to child marriage and more likely to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases. Mary actively engages in advocacy for these causes. Through the Food for Thought NGO, Mary continues to promote the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals of Zero Hunger (SDG 2), Good Health and Wellbeing (SDG 3), Quality Education (SDG 4) and Gender Equality (SDG 5).
