Ms. Tariah Adams is the Communication & Advocacy Officer for WRA Nigeria where she takes the lead in strategic communication and is involved in nearly every aspect of their work to engage citizens, business leaders, media and government for community-level and system-wide change for reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health (RMNCAH) in Nigeria.
With a degree in Public Administration and a background in radio production and presentation spanning about a decade, Ms. Adams has worked as a publicist, script writer, content developer and image maker. She has produced and presented popular programs like “Girls Talk,” a program looking at issues that affect the girl child on Aso FM Abuja, Breeze FM and other leading radio stations.
Tariah is adept at identifying stories that persuade decisions makers to drive social accountability processes across communities. She works directly with the citizens, amplifying their voices and highlighting the specific actions that should be taken by government to embrace citizen-led accountability for RMNCAH.
Tariah joined the Alliance in 2016 because of WRA’s unique approach of engaging women at the community level to speak out and demand their rights. Becoming a mother as a teen, she intimately understands the issues and appreciates that she can be a voice for millions of women in communities who believe their thoughts and opinions do not count.
When not working Tariah loves to read, swim and watch movies with the girls.
