The Market Women Initiative

They play a most viable and pivotal role in the value chain of societal preservation; ranging from food production, preservation, distribution, conservation and consumption. They are a most veritable bloc in the entrepreneurial stratosphere in Africa, accounting for over 70% engagement in both above and below the line indices, yet they are, for the most part, overlooked, underserved and undervalued.

A Better Life

At a time when women rights suffrage was still alien to the national and global discourse, for the first time in Nigerian/African history, the position of a President's wife moved from that of dainty obscurity to national prominence. This is solely due to the efforts of a woman who has come to be referred to, (and aptly so), as Africa's foremost First Lady of all time; Her Excellency, Late Hajiya Dr. (Mrs.) Maryam Ndidi Babangida (nee. Okogwu) (1941-2009), when she launched the Better Life for Rural Women Program during her time in office as Nigeria's First Lady (1985-1993).

Do not blow their chances

Literally blazing the trail from the back end of the room, Ambassador Joy Ndidi Chukwu has earned herself a place on the front row; and rightly so! A proverbial child of providence, loosing her father as a little girl exposed Joy and her 5 siblings to the realities of life in clear cut terms. She watched her mother; a young widow, rise to the challenge in filling the role of both father and mother; deliberately and inadvertently modeling for young Joy the strengths and resilience of the determined human spirit. From a very young age, Joy knew exactly what it was she wanted out of life and began taking practical, deliberate steps towards achieving her dreams. Today Joy Ndidi is an accomplished author, finance and accounting analyst, economist, businesswoman, life coach, youth mobilizer and so much more! She has consistently re-invented herself and her belief in the inherent power of the mind to design and reproduce the destination of its owner drives her strong advise to the youth. This is the message she takes around the world in mobilizing youth for effectiveness and maximized living through her Reactivate Great Minds Summit.

RISE LIKE A PHOENIX

Funke Oguntuga will not be silenced! As a young impressionable, 14 year old high school girl, Funke experienced what would leave many a 40 year old damaged for life! Her trust was broken, her abuse; though preventable, became an inevitable part of her life which shaped her in so many ways; most of which resulting in near self compromise, laced with an abashed undermining of her worth and treasure value. 26 years later, she would "RISE LIKE A PHOENIX" from the ashes of her past and is today leading the campaign against sexual and other forms of abuse against teenage girls and boys alike through her HeartMinders Societal Advancement Initiative.
