The COVID-19 pandemic is the largest confrontation affecting the world today. The new coronavirus has taken thousands of lives and spread to nearly every country in the world. Entire communities now face emergency lockdowns in an attempt to prevent further spread of the disease.
With so much uncertainty and concern surrounding the recent novel coronavirus, it’s easy to feel helpless. This crisis threatens everyone’s way of life, but it is especially difficult for people who are already vulnerable. A lot of Nigerians, especially in the informal sector are very poor. More than 50 per cent of the country’s population lives in abject poverty. This means that they live from hand to mouth.
21st Century Black Woman is an organization empowering women-through education, skills training, improved healthcare and providing funds to set up a small business.
We believe that the girls and women living in poverty can play a crucial role in solving the most persistent development problems facing Nigeria. When a girl in Nigeria is enabled to realize her full potential, she isn’t the only one who escapes poverty. She brings her family, community and country with her.
21st Century Black Woman is passionate about strengthening women’s roles as leaders, entrepreneurs, consumers and economic stakeholders for a better Nigeria.
