We.Share empowers over 200 women, children in Lagos
We.Share Foundation recently organised a vocational training for over 200 women and children in Lekki community and environs in commemoration of the 2020 International Women’s Day. The initiative was part of the non-government organisation’s drive to empower more women and to further advocate for gender equality in the society.
According to the founder of We.Share Foundation, Mrs Taibat Amzat, “the story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist or to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights.”
Mrs Amzat urged the beneficiaries to take the vocational training as serious as possible as it would liberate them from living below the poverty line and empower them to provide for their needs. She also promised that after the training, the most serious and dedicated women would be empowered with their respective training tools to start work as soon as possible.
