WIN Launches “One Woman, One Child” Mentoring Program

In April, WIN visited the Bethesda Girls School in the heart of Epe and interacted with the students. The students gathered for WIN talk which was a time of interactive engagement on subjects ranging from finance and personal growth to hygiene and personal grooming. The WIN ladies were available to answer various questions which only the very active minds of teenagers could have convened.

The overall goal of our “One Woman, one Child” mentoring program was to inspire and develop educational and career aspirations, reduce female dropout in primary school, increase the number of girls advancing to secondary school and to show the children that WIN cares about helping them achieve their goals and fulfilling their potential.

A skills acquisition segment was put in place, where the children were taught the art of Basket Weaving as a possible way of generating income in the future. The children fully engaged their minds and put their hands to work at this new skill and they excelled wonderfully with some making as much as 2 baskets within the 2 hours weaving session!

On a final note, the WIN scholarship was awarded to two exceptional students who demonstrated good leadership qualities, exceptional educational capacity as well as a clear need of assistance. It was a day filled with many laughs as well as lessons to last for a lifetime.
