Meet Woman Of Substance , Dame Julie Okah Donli

 Dame Okah-Donli is one of Nigeria’s brilliant and beautiful women doing exploits on international platforms. She has proven beyond doubt that she’s not only a leader but a change-maker. Her doggedness and resolute commitment have rewritten the narrative that belittles or undermines the strength of a woman.

She was the chairman of the board of Trustees for the UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Trafficking in Persons. 

While serving as the Chair, Dame Okah-Donli brought her invaluable expertise in human trafficking to the Trust Fund as the Director-General of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) in Nigeria since 2017 and has long been a global voice on Trafficking in person issues. 

During her tenure at NAPTIP, she successfully lobbied the government of Nigeria to extend its whistle-blowing policy to human trafficking issues, positively impacting the reporting of this crime in her home country.

 

She further established the NAPTIP Rapid Response Squad to counter criminal activity and piloted joint operations with Spain, the United Kingdom and law enforcement agencies in the region. Through her expertise in communications, she has raised awareness about the issue of human trafficking in Nigeria, campaigning for more involvement of the private sector and individuals in fighting this crime, and even launching a weekly TV segment in local television on the topic.
