Women Advancement for Economic and Leadership Empowerment in Africa (WAELE) has announced plans to establish hospitals, vocational training centres and water treatment plants across 52 African countries, including Nigeria.
The women group said it has also concluded plans to establish a radio/television station that will champion the cause of women, as well as give voice to the voiceless.
This was made known by the president of the group, Mrs Basirat Nahibi, at an executive meeting and international training on peace and conflict management and mediation, held in Abuja recently.
According to Nahibi, the organisation has signed an MoU with an anonymous country for the funding of the projects. “Women and children specialist hospitals and vocational training centres will be built in all 52 countries where the organisation has a presence. Six hospitals will be built in each geo political zones in Nigeria, bore holes and water treatment plants will be provided to reduce waterborne and other related diseases.
“We are hoping that in the near future, some governments will join us in the course. For now, we have signed an MoU with a first world country to fund these projects, a country which I won’t disclose yet.”
She said that the organisation has since inception, trained hundreds of widows across Nigerian states such as Benue, Enugu and Cross River. Nahibi however, urged women across Nigeria to become members of the organisation so that they can be eligible to enjoy the help being offered.
“Women who want to have access to these benefits must strive to become members of our organisation.”
