Women’s Empowerment Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship: VCDF and LDSVA Collaborate to Raise Awareness

Posted by

Strong and resolute, women are the backbone of our society, performing vital responsibilities as breadwinners and caregivers for their families and companies.

They keep going, motivating generations and bringing about good change despite obstacles like scarce funds and uneven prospects.

In observance of Women’s History Month, VCDF, in partnership with SEEPCO and the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (LDSVA), set out on a life-altering mission on March 27, 2024, in Eti-Osa LGA, Lagos State, to empower one hundred community women through education on financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and prevention of sexual and domestic violence.

A woman’s ability to shape her own life and the lives of her loved ones and neighbors is directly correlated to her level of empowerment.

The program not only provided a secure environment for women to learn and network, but it also offered them the chance to gain knowledge about technologies that might help their businesses thrive. As a result, the women felt more empowered to make decisions for their enterprises.

Chief Mrs. Eletu-Odibo Wasilat of Eti-Osa LGA, Lagos State, and Mrs. Adenike Akintoye of the Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation Unit of Eti Osa LGA were among the distinguished guests who attended the event. Mrs. Bello Oluwakemi of the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (LDSVA) also attended.
