THE SISTER PROJECT (TSP)
Girls are the largest under developed, under-powered, underrated and exploited group of people around the world and they represent an alarming percent of untapped and unexplored wealth of knowledge and productivity the world needs. This has served as a deterrent to rapid growth and inclusive development from rural to urban communities especially in sub Saharan Africa. Hence the need to inspire, motivate and instigate a generation of girls who know their worth, recognize their roles and are ready to STAND for leadership and development is imperative. Majority of indigent girls in the Niger Delta face a 99% risk of becoming semi educated, single mothers due to societal vices and a total lack of initiatives to positively harness and guide their strengths.
The need for Women to be empowered through capacity development, and be given the ability to make free and informed decisions, as well as fair opportunities to access resources is a drive for this project. This project focuses on needs to be provided to assist in closing existing gaps in gender equality and women empowerment.
We aim at instigating change and promoting all-encompassing orientation for general lifestyle and value systems amongst young women. Women are the soul of every community, by empowering women and the girl child through series of educational, enlightening and informative programs, we hope to inspire them to aspire for greater heights and be actively involved in developing their communities. Every year we host our annual conference aimed at promoting the values we embody and serve as a toll to achieving our goals.
