I'm super excited to announce to you that I have been accepted to attend the Starting bloc NY'16.
The Starting bloc Institute is a dynamic 5-day conference where Fellows learn from proven chamge-makers, frameworks to create change and connect with leaders building a future that works for everyone.
This 5 days of workshops are designed to enable you hone your leadership skills as well as connect with social innovators from across the world.
Why is this important to me?
I am currently working on a community based project where we will empower women in several communities in Nigeria, Afica.
We understand that the typical African woman is industrious and so, we will selectively pick women and raise funds for them to start a small scale business. Most importantly, we will be working with volunteers who have a prior knowledge of business and management to monitor and evaluate these businesses for a period of 2-3 months till it breaks even.
The big idea is not just to raise funds for these women but also, getting them financially literate and enabling them use technology to foster business growth.
This project has a goal of raising over 200 women within the year 2016 and 2017.
Starting bloc will be a perfect platform to learn effective ways to tackle this and many more challenges that are peculiar to my nation.
