It was my childhood dream to help the oppressed women, to speak against violence against women, to assist women to be free from shackles of poverty, have economic power and have a voice in our society. I carried this dream for 45 years of my life until through technology I got connected to World Pulse and the whole world in 2009.
One click! My voice was out powerfully, one click! I become a voice to be recon with in the society, one click, I am fulfilling my dream!! Through the connection from World Pulse I attended Empowerment Institute, NY, USA by scholarship.
At the Institute, I learned an innovation called IMAGINE, empowering women and girls to discover the power in them to create the life they most wanted for themselves. I brought this innovation to Nigeria as I registered my NGO, Women Inspiration Development Center in 2010.
To Date Women Inspiration Development Center have empowered about 3,500 women and girls victims of violence that are not sure of a meal per day. This is translating to the direct impact of improving 62,500 peoples’ lives, and close to 525,000 people indirectly affected through Imagine Empowerment Workshops, Support Groups and Skill Acquisition training.
Presently to scale this innovation, IMAGINE in Nigeria, I am training 7 Women NGOs leaders who will empower in the next one year 500 women and girls each in their NGOs translating to the direct impact of 65,000 people's lives and about 650,000 people indirectly affected.
