At the MoU signing on Friday 9th September, 2016 

On Friday 9th September, the second phase of the Young Women Leaders Project kicked off at the Kogi State Polytechnic with the official signing of the MoU. The Fund led by the CEO met with the Rector and his management team to discuss modalities going forward. The project begins in two weeks with a capacity building session and is aimed at empowering young women with advocacy, organizing and leadership skills to actively participate in decision making in their local communities. So far, the project has been successfully implemented in Bingham University, Karu – Nasarawa State and Federal Polytechnic, Bida – Niger State in the first phase. These young women are currently doing great things.

In this second phase, the Federal University of Technology, Owerri and the Kogi State Polytechnic are beneficiaries as we aim to spread the gains of the project nationwide. The institution was led by Mr Isah Mohammed (Rector), Dr. Shuaibu (Director of Administrative Affairs), Engr. Elumokpo J.A (Director of Works), Mrs. Comfort Funke Obarunmi (Gender Officer), Mr. Kehinde Lamidi (Director of Student Services) and Miss K. Helen (SUG Director of Sports).

The project is targeted at closing the growing generational gap amongst women in decision making in Nigeria through young women imbibing the skills to engage their communities and elected officials.
