about image

You are definitely intrigued to
discover who we are.

A lot of women out there are suffering; some needs only encouragement and support to navigate what they are passing through, some need just a token to be empowered. Girl Child deserves a future. It is not a sin to be born as a girl but not as a son, girl child education is important, they are not supposed to be forced into early marriage. An educated girl is more likely to grow up healthy, and be able to determine what is good for her future, like when she’s ready for marriage and children.
We understand the importance of education for girl children. We will do whatever it takes to ensure every last girl child has a chance to grow up healthy, educated and safe – her best chance for a bright future. This Foundation has therefore come to unlock the possibility for women empowerment and Girl Child education and development.
We will support the education of girls who may not otherwise have the chance to learn — We will also empower women, changing the course of their lives, their children’s lives and the future of their communities. We will support and empower them in our little ways to see that they have a means of livelihood. Like in men and boys, there are values in women and girls lives. We are therefore inspired to improving the quality of life for them in Nigeria and around the world.

WHAT WE DO

Our Focus is on Poor Women, Girl Child and Better Health for All. We support them in 3 ways

  • We work with poorest communities to support the widows, single mothers and other poor and vulnerable women to start doing small business that will enhance their living. Through our Foundation, we connect with hardworking women entrepreneurs who are waiting to realize their dream of building or expanding a successful business. A small support is all they need.
  • We support all poor women in the communities towards enhancing their access to quality healthcare services.
  • We also support poorest girl child to commence secondary education and post-secondary education. When girls stay in school and finish secondary education, a lot of good things happen for them and their families. They enjoy better health and can take care of themselves and their children. They live longer, marry later, earn higher wages, and are more active participants in community life

Did you know that instead of attending class, girls and women around the world spend their time each day hawking and laboring to before they could eat. If they had support, there’s so much more they could do: attend school, start a business — to name a few. We generally support vulnerable women and girls families in Nigeria and the world.
