Women and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
WHAT IS THE WOMEN FOR SDGs Platform?
Inspired by the golden words of Kofi Annan, Former Secretary General, United Nations, “There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of Women”, Women For SDGs is a public awareness platform created by a group of Africa Development Partners (ADP) with the support of United Nations to identify, recruit, train and empower African young women via vocational counselling, low cost skills training, start up capital (not a loan), and mentoring to bring their business ideas to life and by so doing positively impact their Lives, Families and their Communities, especially Women.
The Platform will impact African Women on four level:-
3) Self Confidence
The platform seeks to empower African women as well as engage them to create continental wide awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as the United Nations has clearly stated the importance of the role of women in the process of achieving the goals by 2030.
I am an African Woman, between the ages of 18-28 years, Entreprenuerial and Full of Life.
I do not support sexual harrassment/molestation, intimidation, discrimination and marginalization of Women in Africa.
I believe if given the chance and with the right empowerment, I can make a difference and help women all over the continent live a better life.
But I need support to bring my ideas to Life and be a successful Entrepreneur.
I am determined to break through the barriers of capital, so I can be a Job creator rather than be among the millions of educated but unemployed women in Africa.
I support Gender Equality.
This is Me, am the African Woman for this opportunity.
