Why Africa? Why Nigeria?

Africa is the largest continent with the most amount of black women in the world. All over the world, history is replete with records of women from this continent who have made a mark excelled remarkably in sports, fashion, academics, music, politics and so on. Women such as Queen Nanny of Jamaica, Yaa Asentewaa, Fumilayo Kuti, Miriam Makeba, Wangari Maathai, Okonjo Iweala who challenged the statuesque and demanded change for themselves and others.
Nigeria is home to some of the most hardworking, innovative and talented people you’d find in the world. People who continue to rise above the limitations of their environment to create a life for themselves and their families while also contributing to their chosen field.

The Problems

In sub-Saharan Africa, the number of women and girls living in extremely poor households is expected to increase from 249 million to 283 million between 2021 and 2030.

For far too long, women and girls in Africa have faced discrimination and inequalities in the workforce. This has not only hurt them, but their families, communities, and their countries as a whole.

Research has proven that healthy, educated girls with equal access to opportunities can grow into strong, smart women who can take on leadership roles in their countries and empower others.

Most women in the non-farm labor force are self-employed in the informal sector but have no access to finance to grow their businesses. Women are often relegated to less productive sectors.

The Solutions

There is strength in numbers. The more women we can empower, the more impact we can make in the society.

We want to create a world where black women can be free to dream and be confident that their dreams can be met.

A financially independent black woman is a beauty to behold. We intend to increase the numbers.

A woman who is well fed, clothed and sheltered is a woman whose mind can birth healthy ideas.
