Photos Of Women Empowerment Centre Built By Dr Okezie IkpeazI Females empowerment in Nigeria is an economic process that involves empowering Nigerian women as a poverty reduction measure.
Empowerment is the development of women in term of politics, social and economic strength in nation development. It is also a way of reducing women’s vulnerability and dependency in all spheres of life. It can be noted that the aggregate of educational, political, health and legal empowerment are key to women’s empowerment in Nigeria.
Like many African women, Nigerian women have a subordinate role to their male counterparts. There are twice as many women below the poverty line than men, and up to 19 times as many men in executive positions than women.*
In line with these realities , the Abia state government led by Dr Okezie Victor Ikpeazu in conjunction with NNPC and Total Nigeria (Upstream) partnered to deliver a women vocational skills center which was commissioned today in Abia state.
The vocational skills acquisition center which is located within the premises of the Abia state Ministry for Women Affairs complex has the capacity to train women and girls who are interested in learning the skills of Fashion designing , Catering and ICT .
Fully equipped to meet the demands of the entrants, the complex which has capacity to house 150 persons when it kicks off also has accommodations with 24 hours power supply backed by a 45kva Power generating set and a back up of 100kva Solar power equipment .
The complex was commissioned today with the Secretary to the Abia State Governement representing the Governor and the honorable Commissioners of Information Chief John Okiyi Kalu and Women Affairs Mrs Ukachi Amala
