Anything less is just not okay.

Anything less is just not okay.

Several inter-related socio-economic factors have led to poor economic status of a large segment of Nigerian women.

If you are familiar with the issue of poverty, you might know that although women perform two-thirds of the world’s unpaid labour and grow more than half the world’s food yet 70% of people living below the poverty line are women and these women are stressed!

In the short term, stress isn’t always a bad thing. It can motivate us to deal with a situation that poses some level of threat and the burst of adrenaline and other hormonal changes that occur during a stress response can heighten our senses and give us extra amounts of energy but chronically stressful situations that go unaddressed can lead to serious health problems and emotional imbalance which can prevent a woman from forging ahead.

It is to this end that I encourage Nigerians to join forces and empower women in our
environment facing hardship because I believe this will enhance their productivity and empower them to be good role models to the Nigerian Child!

“Every woman has the right to a good life full of abundance and plenty! and to know that anything less is just not okay.”
