PWN Lagos: Professional Grooming for Girls

PWN Lagos, one of our newest city networks has a sound selection of seasoned women from different professional backgrounds. Sandra Momah, President of PWN Lagos reports, "We are happy to announce that we have inaugurated a functional board of executives who are passionate about creating operational excellence in PWN Lagos. 

The first project we have delivered is the female child program tagged "Professional Grooming for Girls PGG". PGG is PWN Lagos' uniquely designed program targeted at supporting girls in the senior secondary school level who are about to become university students.

This project was borne out of the boiling need to join our voice and efforts with the existing backgrounds of advocacy to empower young females to develop into fulfilled professional women, and become a positive change agent in society.

The PGG program has been executed twice, with both occasions recording a huge success.

PWN Lagos Grooming for GirlsThe first PGG event was on 12th December, 2017 at Holy Child College, south- west Ikoyi, Lagos Nigeria. Holy child college is a renowned missionary all girls school. Over 80 girls and all our supporting PWN Lagos members were in attendance and all benefitted from a well packed resourceful presentation.

The program recived great media attention with local television coverage, online transmissions, and two national newspapers picked up the story.

The second PGG edition was held on 24th October, 2018 at Federal College of Education Staff School Akoka, Lagos. This time it was a bigger event, as it was targeted to be part of the international 'Girl Child Day' celebrations. The program was a huge success and this time we had over 150 girls in attendance from three different schools.

Once again, we revieved great media coverage - shining a spotlight on the work of PWN in Nigeria. We facilitated lively Q&A sessions, and the girls couldn't hide their excitement as they felt very free to interact with the facilitators.

The school management expressed gratitude to the PWN team and that established a relationship that we will continue to nurture to benefit the girls and our local community as a whole. We have a follow up strategy linked to the model of the training. We return to the schools to carry out an evaluation research to find out what impact this programme has had on the girls and to assess where we can make further improvement.
