Happy International Women’s Day
ChiYoWo celebrates International Women’s Day with women in a hard to reach community called Oreta Igbogbo, in Lagos State, Nigeria and they made their own products!
These women want to push boundaries and do something different in their community and for their families. Following a series of stakeholder engagement meetings and needs assessments, we captured their needs and all designed a project.
After a 3-hour training workshop with our Team, this is what they came up with -AreWà Multipurpose Soap and AreWà Air Freshener… a ChiYoWo community Initiative.
Now, they are empowered and excited and want to produce these products on a larger scale and sell them in their local markets! Check out their packaging🤗🤗
You see, the need to embrace #BalanceForPower can also come from the struggles within. Women can come together without jealousy or fear and achieve greatness. In this community, women tend to invest over 70% of their earnings back into their family lives for sustainable development. Happy investing!!!
Thank you so much to our volunteers! Your great teamwork is awesome!!!
Thanks to our sponsor Godrej a consumer products company who donated hair extensions and bar soap to the ladies. Much appreciated.
