MMS WOFHOF INITIATIVE
Maritime Management Series Woman Of Fortune Hall Of Fame Initiative
MMS WOFHOF INITIATIVE packages Survivor- Centered activities that delivers lasting impact through innovative programs that empower people — especially women and girls —to be agents of change within their communities.
The #Girlsuntouch , #WomenAlive, #Wilcep and #WomenAmazon movements have ushered in a period of ever-increasing awareness, heightened our sense of urgency, propelled meaningful action, and sparked important conversations around women’s and girls’ rights.
With your help, we have expanded access to education particularly for girls in the Northern region, who face so many barriers in their pursuit of learning. Today more than 12 thousand women participate in village savings and loan associations, which MMS WOFHOF INITIATIVE pioneered 2 years ago under the 5W 250,000 in North East, North West, North Central and South West as a way to harness the traditional practice of group savings. We combated gender-based violence, child marriage and cultural norms that so often favor boys, leaving girls with less opportunity to realize their full potential. Through your support, we promoted gender equality so that more women can find a seat at the decision making table of their households and communities.
