Partnership Opportunities for Women Empowerment Realisation (POWER),
celebrating the International Women’s Day on the March 8 this year, POWER said “we have always purported that the empowerment of a woman is the spring board of the empowerment of her family, her immediate community which has a ricochet effect on the nation at large.”
The Founder and Initiator of POWER, Mrs. Obioma Liyel-Imoke during the her address the occasion that the organization is focused on finding partnership in training and mentoring young people towards having a positive mind towards politics and other elective offices in the country.
Our Founder also said that empowerment brings about development. “It is in the place of empowerment that the woman has a voice to speak and to negotiate and to become a partner and a co-decision maker in the home, office, community and polity.”
In agreement with the UN theme, we themed the event “The POWER Woman”, which focuses and addresses the woman in POWER – and the value her being in a position of POWER can bring to society.
POWER in the past has had various programs, which have been meticulously put together to change the narrative for women and girls.
Which are the GLOW project- Giving Life Option to Widows, The AWAKE Project – Awakening women and girls to power in engaging in agriculture, and MACA Project – Mothers against Child Abandonment. The MACA project, which subsequently gave birth to the Destiny’s Child Centre and the Carnival Calabar Queen Pageant a project aimed at helping vulnerable teen age girls in society.
