The Hauk foundation has empowered over 80 women in different skills ranging from baking, sewing, make up, small chops and pastries, child minding, ICT, personal development and leadership.
The president of Hauk Foundation, Mrs Hauwa Rebecca Sodeinde, harped on the purpose for which the programme was established, pointing out that women should strive to empower themselves so as to be able to support their spouses.
She advised the single women to strive for new knowledge until they reach a point where they are certain of what they want to make out of life. Funmilola Obebe, another member of hauk foundation spoke of the need of women also being providers for the sake of their children.
Juissy Chris, a musical artist who just released her album “Show me the money” spoke on the reason why she decided to join the movement, described the woman as that person who should go extra mile to see that her children get all the extras life has to offer.
Participants were full of praise for the organisers as they described the opportunity to learn as a gift from heaven especially as they were not asked to pay to be a part of the programme.
The international day for the elimination of violence will be celebrated by Hauk Foundation on the 24th of November at Lagos State digital village, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos. The event which will be the 3rd edition of its kind expected to welcome different speakers including the information officer, of GIABA Mr Tim Melaye and other stakeholders.
