“The last chat I had with Rachel Bakam was on the 1st of April 2021. She said ‘I just received bad and troubling news, I am speechless’ I asked her what happened- clearly alarmed and she replied ‘its April fools day bro! LOL’ and my fear turned into a smile. She then proceeded to tell me about her latest fundraising drive to empower Southern Kaduna women in the rural areas by providing seed money and equipment for them. We chatted a little more about it and signed off. Little did I know that lest than 2 weeks later I wold be the one who received the ‘bad and troubling news’ of her death!!

“Rachel was a very inspiring woman, sister and mother- always had a smile, always positive and very very clear about her goals. I met her probably 17 years ago in Kaduna through a mutual friend and later on with her then husband Israel Edjeren. More recently, we were in the same Kaduna Creative group where we mentor, support and share opportunities for empowerment – and she was always very active, passionate about any project concerning Southern Kaduna and Kaduna state as a whole- but with a keen focus on helping the less privileged and the displaced refugees across the country.

It hit us all very very hard cos we lost a true gem, the space she occupied, not many can fill today because she had a special flair about what she did and that flair was driven by her passion for her people. She will be dearly missed by us all”.
