We would first of all like to thank from the bottom of our hearts all our donors who have donated as well as volunteered for Women Inspiration Development Center in the last 5 months that we joined GlobalGiving.
We are so excited to let you know that through your support, from September 11th , 2017 through January 11th, 2018, we have raised around $4,690 (1,407,000 Naira)
towards 4-day Agency empowerment Workshops for disenfranchised young women training of the young women in vocational skills and coaching for university admission.
37 young women have been recruited for 4-day Agency Empowerment Workshop which will be the first step before the vocational training. The agency empowerment Workshop is a game changer for women empowerment which is also called “IMAGINE I am I can https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rs24NPbmdI It empowers women in challenging life circumstances in developing world countries to envision and create new possibilities for their lives.
Through your donations 37 young women are engaged right now by Women Inspiration Development Center to stay off the street to maximize their God given potentials and therefore free from becoming single mothers, victims of human trafficking, victims of battering, died of quirk abortion or contacted HIV/AIDS.
At the end of this program, these young women would be free from absolute poverty and they will be equipped economically. By so doing, poverty would be on the decrease and violence against women would be minimized in Nigeria.
Therefore, for Women Inspiration Development Center to reach our target of taking 250 young women off the street this year 2018, we would like to encourage you to become our recurring monthly donors throughout the year.
