Nigerian songstress Waje is launching an initiative that supports gender equality, and is aimed at empowering, enabling and creating better opportunities for African women and girls across the continent.
While announcing the new project, Waje shared some photos shot by Aham Ibeleme and she had this to say;
The most important and often misunderstood concept in the narratives for gender equality is OPPORTUNITY. One of our key goals for this project is to create awareness about the need to guarantee the same opportunities for education and life choices for the African girl or woman. To make gender equality a reality in Africa, we must educate and empower women. I believe that the only way to do this is by being an example and a voice for our women who do not have the opportunity to speak for themselves. We must enlighten them. We must let them know that they can be the driving force of African growth. Through www.waje.safehouse.org , we will be touring the continent and kicking off a scholarship fund for 5 bright young women who are unable to fund their tertiary education.
