“The story of my life is not a linear progression of events but a complex journey of self-reflections and experiences. Ultimately, my life is an intricate combination of my past experiences, present situations and future aspirations.
As women, we are meant to strengthen and encourage one another, not to mock, gossip or developed hatred towards each other. There are so many women broken, shattered and wounded in our mist, but we are too pure or perfect to see it.
The strong urge to kickstart this foundation came up this year and by the grace and help of God, it has come to stay. However, it is a vision that can’t be run single handedly, we need each other’s stories to strengthen one another.
Finally, I count it all joy and a great privileged to partner with you my sisters on this journey of “keeping it real” by strengthening one another in love and in the counsel of the Almighty God, thank you so much for being part of this historic movement, I celebrate you my amiable Sisters.”

“Greetings to every member of this esteemed platform. To empower women is to allow them to obtain their true rights in society. At this very crucial time in our nation’s history and looking at the dwindling world economy as a whole, the place of the woman in the general growth, upliftment and stability of our society can never be over emphasized.
Women have come a long way and have quietly championed the course of galvanizing the various economies they find themselves in.
With the little resources at their disposal from selling akara, corn, food stuff, to selling used clothes, used shoes, handbags etc., into building a well-structured and functional home. Whereas these businesses once-upon-a-time were looked down on with disregard, the Midas-touch of the dedicated, hardworking and diligent woman have now transformed these once considered menial trades to major money-spinning sources of income especially among many homes today.
Empowering women is therefore essential to the health and social development of families, communities and countries. When women are living safe, fulfilled and productive lives, they can reach their full potential. contributing their skills to the workforce and can raise happier and healthier children, homes and a better society.”
