Upcoming event for 2019

Introduction: Global 21st Century Entrepreneur initiatives is a nonprofit organization, set up with the mission to  promote social and economic empowerment for women and advance women’s right through skills-based training  to enabled them set up small sustainable business , and importantly become self reliance . For over 8 years, we have been helping marginalized women and girls in communities and villages .

Goals: Our Ultimate goal is to help women; particularly widows and vulnerable girls achieve financial stability and supporting community-led solutions to challenges women face.

Needs Assessment: Beyond helping women and girls with  skills-based training, we see needs of organizing a- day get together and empowerment program. Under the theme: ‘Empowering women as a tool to valuable inclusive sustainability’ to inspired and motivate women who truly need  help in developing a decent livelihood, thereby helping them to become a critical component to sustainable economic development. “For women, particularly those in less fortunate places, they need hope to envision a future, so they can manage the present. Hope is a gift we can easily give. If we can give it in masses, we have the ability to impact large-scale  change”.

  Target Groups: We target to empower 50 widows  to launch their local business and support  150 marginalized rural community women.

Event Date: on December 17th 2019. 

Event Venue: Sunview Hotel and Suits, Alagbaka. Akure. Ondo State.

Hi Mojisola,

How are you doing, dear? Thanks for sharing your update and organization's amazing mission and goal. What is the target date for providing the widows and community women with support? Are you saying it's in conjunction with the event or is the event something else? Hope you event goes well, and I'm looking forward to seeing an update (with photos:-) on how it goes.

Hope you're doing well, and having a great weekend!

Hello, Mojisola,

This is a great project! Economic empowerment truly helps women to be self-reliant and independent. I'm glad that there is an option like this for widows and other vulnerable women. Please update us more. Hoping for the best!

Hi Mojisola,
This is such important work. From generation to generation women have been expected to do indentured labour and to be cast aside when they are single/widowed. Making economic security possible is a life changing and empowering act. The beautiful photo speaks volumes.
