What does life as a woman or girl look like in your country / city / town / village? Any issues / challenges / exciting milestones?
In our community, we are seen humans who are meant to be locked up in the house, as humans whose voices are not meant to be heard, like we don't have a say. But if things continue this way it'll lead to the downfall of our society. Women have unique ideas they can bring to the table. It's time we're given the chance to speak, prove ourselves and make a positive impact in the world.

The main aim to protect and build the capacity of the needy to withstand societal pressure and be self dependent, through various channels.

I'm into hatching day old chicks. I sell accessories like watches & jewelries. I do journal production and sales. I have a web-development business where people pay to me to create and design their sites, I do digital marketing, but basically I'm into different things.
How have the women and girls around you helped you to get to where you are today?
Looking up to great women in my community without even getting to know them personally has given me that driving force to make effort to continue moving and never give up.
