On August 4, 2015, the Women Fund called on the Korean Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr Noh Kyu-duk to seek collaboration with the embassy and its development agency KOICA towards grooming young women for leadership in Nigeria.

The Women Fund’s CEO, Mrs Olufunke Baruwa, lamented the dismal representation of women in leadership across the country and stressed the need to reverse the trend through its Young Women Leadership Project. The Ambassador in his response affirmed the Embassy’s readiness to support the Fund and forging greater partnerships towards achieving gender parity.
