Beauty Queen Chizoba Ejike hosted a Charity Concert in Awka, Anambra State tagged, “Be Bold” which was aimed at creating awareness on Gender Inequality Sustainable Development Goal 5. Ejike who won the the maiden edition of the 2014 Miss Independence Anambra Pageant And 2015, MBGN Runner Up/Miss Tourism at the event disclosed that gender inequality does not affect women only but also cripples down our economy. World Economic Forum estimated that sub-Sahara Africa loses an annual sum of 96 million US dollars economically because women are not allowed to contribute.
It also threw light on the effect of violence and how we can work towards achieving these sustainable goals. We worked with the ministry for Her Excellency Mrs. Ebelechukuw Obiano who was our mother of the day, the Ministry for Women Affairs and Honourable Commissioner for Education to achieve this great feat.
About 20 orphanage homes, 10 secondary schools and three major universities in Anambra State came to be part of the movement, gift items were distributed to the orphanage homes, prices and honorary awards were awarded to school teachers, students and other philanthropists for their commitments.
