The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and a staff member of the Nigerian Women Trust Fund paid a visit to selected institutions in Kano state between July 23 to 26th 2018. The primary aim of the visits was to seek collaborations to identify and work out new strategies towards strengthening and increasing the number of women who turn out to become candidates and eventually win elections in 2019, whilst it also assists to garner public support to enhance aspirations and opportunities available for women.
Some the institutions visited include Cool Fm, Wazobia Fm, Arewa Radio, Rahma Radio, Freedom Radio, Inter Party Advisory Council and the office of the Hon. Commissioner, Ministry of Women Affairs & Social Development.
Project “Creating Spaces” is an initiative of the Nigerian Women’s Trust Fund and supported by African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF). Specifics of project will be made public as other interventions unfold.
