Foundation to empower 100 women in five years

A new foundation, the Cecilia Esenwa Foundation (CEF) is searching for 20 Nigerian women with any level of skills to empower yearly for the next five years.

Speaking at the Foundation’s formal launch last Friday at the Four Points by Sheraton, Lagos, its founder, Mr Chris Agbaje, said the women to be selected from all parts of the country would benefit from training that would imbue them with soft/technical skills and business acumen to make a difference in their communities.

“Each year we will identify 20 women from north and south. We have an ad-hoc staff of 40 people who will identify the women. We are not looking for inner-city women; we are looking for women anywhere they are to empower them,” said Agbaje, adding that education, religion or ethnicity would not bar any woman from being selected.

Agbaje said he started the foundation in honour of his grandmother, Madam Cecilia Ezenwa, whose strength, wisdom and lifestyle had great influence on him and many others.
