GOBONI, was a simple, honest, humble woman from Lékeï , respectful of the customs of her time.
As a teenager, she was given in marriage to solve family feud. GOBONI, following the Obali (1) custom, became the third wife of a man. Without the possibility to refuse this situation, and faced with such clear violation of her fundamental rights, she had to accept this union.
In her marriage, she bore two sons, and shortly after the death of her husband, she was given to the nephew of the deceased. Of that union, she will have a third son. As a woman of character, she raised her children with dignity, valuing human rights, love, tolerance, while encouraging each to pursue education as a mean for success in life.
To add to her situation, GOBONI will be obliged to take care of the household of her sister, to ensure the honor of the family. She fulfilled this responsibilities with such excellence that she ended up inheriting the fortune of this household.
Unfortunately, in the absence of her two first sons, and for causes of jealousy, GOBONI was brutally murdered. She ultimately was not able to reap the benefits of the education and success of her children and grandchildren.
GOBONI’s story highlights how in precarious time, admirable, dedicated, and strong women acted for the good of all, while surfing the archaic traditional systems, responsible for negating basic human rights. The tragedy of this story is that despite the difficulties, and the tragic death, GOBONI remains a source of inspiration for many and is the rooted core inspiration for the birth of the GOBONI International Group.
How many people, especially women, young women, are unaware of their rights? Right and freedom related to education, gender equality, freedom of speech/of choice, etc. Culture remains fundamental in encouraging or discouraging certain practices, provided it does not hinder the respect for human rights for a more serene world.
It is in this perspective that the GOBONI International Group for Knowledge of Human Rights G.K.H.R. was created with the ambition and commitment to promote knowledge in all sectors, while promoting education, training and awareness.
