“Empowering Women in Finance and Health: Building Bridges to Success”
On the 15th of March, 2023, in commemoration of International Women’s Day, we conducted our 1st quarter project. It was actively led by our project manager, Miss Funmilayo, and a few of our dedicated volunteers. We collaborated with other organizations, including MetroHealth and NPF Microfinance, at the Eleko market centre.
For the event, we invited knowledgeable individuals to speak to the women of Eleko market. They shared valuable insights on how to build their finances through saving and also discussed various ways to request loans for starting up new businesses.
In addition to these financial empowerment discussions, we also focused on health. We invited skilled health practitioners to address the attendees, providing information on proper health habits. Basic healthcare services like weight and blood pressure checks were also made available to the women.
Overall, our project aimed to empower the women of Eleko market, offering them valuable knowledge and resources to improve their financial stability and overall well-being.
