Decent work and Economic Growth
Lots of people lost their jobs due to the pandemic. With rising inflation, it is projected that many more will lose their jobs. As a result, millions of Nigerian youths will be unemployed after school and a significant number of families will be unable to support themselves.
Our Proposed Solution
To help balance the work and economic growth in Nigeria, we plan to help more people access better job opportunities, encourage more people to become business owners, and create training for skills.
Our Impact Stories
With the resources gathered, we have successfully helped and trained more people with the right skills they need to thrive in the workplace.
Our lightbox sessions are short-term training programs, usually lasting between 30 mins-1 hour, to help women get a stronger foothold in their business and finances. Bi-weekly, we invite speakers who are making strides to speak in their area of specialization.
We provide women with a good support network, giving them a place to learn and develop the skills they need to be more confident.
The Enterprise Challenge provides support or funding to early-stage or growing female-led businesses through grants and continuous mentorship. Female business owners who meet the criteria are given the chance to pitch their business to a panel of judges to win grants and possibly get investments.
Over the years, we have awarded several women with cash prizes to help establish their businesses. That, and continuous mentorship to inspire them and provide a fresh perspective on how to grow a business.
Jobs and opportunities
On our job board, we share job opportunities so that women can find out what job roles are available in their industry. Because scouring the internet for job offers can be stressful and result in people missing out on good opportunities most of the time, we decided to provide a simpler way to bridge that widening gap.
On our job board, we share amazing opportunities from companies like Amazon, Deloitte, and Google. It’s easy to target jobs based on specific industries or locations and tailor your CV accordingly.
