Connecting, Empowering And Showcasing The African Woman ?? Train a woman, train the nation. It’s no exaggeration to say women are the pillars of every society. When a woman is educated a chain reaction occurs; she makes informed choices which help in the quest to seek liberation, become empowered and ultimately better the nation.
Driven by the desire to connect, empower, inspire, showcase and celebrate untold achievements of fearless, driven African women trailblazers excelling in various fields, beloved author and leading radio personality Tola Onigbanjo aka WiseTola alongside her husband Sam founded @Women4Africa – which has been identified as the largest celebration of African women in the commonwealth by the Commonwealth Secretariat.
