Former Nigerian Minister, Dr. Kema Chikwe calls on the Government and donor agencies to partner with the Ugwumba Leadership Center

Her Excellency, Amb. Dr Kema Chikwe has commended the President of the Ugwumba Center for Leadership Development in Africa, His Excellency, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu and his team for lifting thousands of Nigerian youths and women out of poverty.

The former Nigerian Minister of Transport and Aviation as well as former Nigerian Ambassador to Ireland said this a few days ago while officially unveiling the U-Fund for Women, a microgrants initiative of the Ugwumba Leadership Center.

She appreciated the Center for developing such a grants program that is targeted at the women in the rural areas, who are struggling with their small businesses and their families and used the opportunity to invite government agencies, stakeholders and Philanthropists around the world to join hands with the Ugwumba Leadership Center in the implementation of this great vision which she said would enable these women upscale their businesses.

According to her, “women empowerment is a worthy venture that should be supported by all because the ripple effect in the society if given enough push cannot be overemphasized. I am in love with this initiative because, every program targeting rural women is a strategic way of alleviating poverty in Nigeria.”

Once again, congratulations to the first set of beneficiaries of this project, which includes 10 women from the FCT and 10 women each from the six (6) geo-political zones in Nigeria!
