INDIGENT WOMEN EMPOWERMENT SCHEME (IWES)
IWES is one of the key initiatives of Ugo’s Touch of life Foundation in her bid to actualize her driving force and slogan, “touching lives everywhere”. It is a trite fact that, women are and have been an essential cardinal agent of formation and socializing process in the family unit and society in general. Obviously it is seen that most women are faced with many harsh challenges within the family or in the larger society, hence the difficulty for them to properly play their roles as cardinal socializing agents. It is in this light, and in line with the dreams of our founder, Her Excellency Mrs. Monica U. Ugwuanyi, that this initiative was brought to lime light to mitigate, if possible totally eradicate their sufferings, as well as support these indigent women in their struggle to make ends meet.
U-TOLF has begun a mission to empower indigent women in all the local governments in Enugu State, at the moment, she has carried out empowerment projects of women in different communities in many 5 local governments. In collaboration with PATHS2; A UK-aid DFID Funded project, 40 women from Udi, Nsukka, Enugu-east and Nkanu West Local Government Areas were supported to start up and improve on their economic activities. U-TOLF has also replicated this project in Udi and Udenu Local Government Areas of the state, empowering 40 and 35 women respectively with different economic activities depending on the beneficiaries’ interest.
