Cecilia
Esenwa Foundation (CEF), a non-governmental organisation focused on empowering
women with the aim of building stronger communities in the society has been
launched in Lagos. The official launch of the Foundation was held on Friday,

The mission
of the non-profit organisation is to educate, assist and support women who have
some form of skill set but no growth or development in their chosen endeavours.

Speaking
during the event, Chris Agbaje, founder and chairman of the Foundation, stated that about 99 million of Nigerians are women,
hence adequate attention must be given to them. He said: “Our core focus at the
Cecilia Esenwa Foundation is to accelerate human development with emphasis on
women. Secondly, we want to improve the lives and well-being of Nigerians who
desire to excel in their field of endeavours but are handicapped due to
circumstances beyond them.”

Agbaje
noted that 18 million women are found in the rural areas/unserved areas, with
little means of advancing their means of livelihood. He explained that over time, social-economic
and environmental factors have played key roles in shaping people’s
livelihoods.

Agbaje
added that besides empowering women physically, CEF is also passionate about their
mental health; noting that if one is not mentally empowered, then physical
empowerment will not make a lasting impact.
