GOAL

The goal of this programme was to provide women and youth with financial and non financial services and tools to strengthen their skills and income

WHY THIS GOAL?

Women’s poverty lies at the heart of their marginalization and oppression. For women to become active citizens and have their rights respected and needs met, their economic empowerment needs to be guaranteed. Social vices can be greatly reduced in Nigeria if youth are meaningfully engaged. By providing financial and non financial services and tools to strengthen the skills and income of women and youth, we are helping to bring about a more equitable, safe and just Nigeria
