Women of Rubies hold grassroots women workshop
The first phase of our workshop tagged “Empowering grassroots women and giving them a voice” kicked off on August 26 2016 at the Alimosho LGA Akowonjo, Lagos by 10a.m. Women came out enmasse from different spheres of the community to be part of the successful workshop.
The women were not only sensitised on the need to be empowered, but were also encouraged to save towards the future of their children by the Keynote speaker, Chinyere Anokwuru of Self-worth Organisation for women, while the Sole Administrator of the Local Government, Hon. Ganiu Quadri, encouraged them to attend more of such programmes to be enlightened and have a voice in the society.
According to the Founding Editor, Esther Ijewere-Kalejaiye, the workshop was an impactful learning experience for women in the grassroots, as it addressed issues affecting them.
