The Empowering Women Series is a unique initiative targeted at young ladies between the ages of 12 and 30 with the aim of bringing them a practical message of hope, while providing them with guidelines and applicable principles that can set them on the path to becoming role models in our society. The Empowering Women Series is a project championed by En-Reach Limited, a women’s lifestyle organisation that has set its self apart as a provider of products and services that offer enrichment for the female populace across Nigeria.
ObjectiveWith the underlying message that ‘you can be all you want to be’, The Empowering Women Series will identify and celebrate young, dynamic and outstanding women within the ages of 12 and 24 who are already on the path to greatness; but can benefit greatly from the success story of an inspiring woman who has already walked the path they hope to, connect with and draw inspiration from her.
So, in addition, the series will select and showcase a role model (referred to as the focal person) and document their story in an easy to understand manner, to ignite the passion in young women and cause them to break through surrounding limitations and become the best they can be.
