Since Nnadozie Foundation commenced operations, we have impacted the lives of over 1,000 women and girls directly and indirectly through our programs.
Recently, Nnadozie Foundation with the support of Virginia Gildersleeve Foundation USA, trained and empowered 90 women in Abia State Nigeria. Beneficiaries received entrepreneurship training on medium-scale poultry business and financial literacy training. They also received vital inputs such as chicks, feeders, drinkers, and other equipment for a successful start -up of their poultry businesses. Direct beneficiaries stepped down the training to other women in their communities so that many more women could acquire skills in poultry management, thereby impacting more women. This resulted in income and employment for beneficiaries, improved conditions of living and self-esteem. They are now able to afford school fees for their children, access health care and attend to other social needs.
Nnadozie Foundation continues to tackle poverty and inequality and helps underserved women and girls fulfill their potentials by providing entrepreneurship and financial literacy training integrated with personal development training. Micro-grants are also made available to support small business start-ups, which enables beneficiaries grow their way out of poverty.
Our special maternal health project has also impacted many underserved pregnant women, as they receive clean delivery kits, pregnancy health training, treated bed nets and free blood pressure checks.
We are committed to continuous growth and improvement to achieve maximum impact in the lives of underserved women and girls.
