As part of efforts to celebrate and empower women in the South-East region, Nigeria’s leading integrated foods and Agro-Allied Group, Flour Mills of Nigeria Plc (FMN), owners of the iconic Golden Penny Foods brand has provided practical skills and valuable resources to help women in the region grow their businesses, reward them, and encourage them to live an active lifestyle.
This was achieved during the 2021 edition of the annual August women’s meeting in four states of the South-East: Abia, Enugu, Anambra, and Ebonyi.
The August women’s meeting honours the rich cultural legacy of the South-East region of the country. Golden Penny promotes this legacy by recognising and appreciating the contribution of women in the country’s socio-cultural development.
The programme tagged August Golden Parti is geared towards women empowerment, rural community growth and human development within communities in Eastern Nigeria. The company made its commitment through several activities such as free health checks, health and nutritional talks, raffle draws, amongst others.
The August Golden Parti is one of the platforms aimed at empowering women to do more within families and communities. With entrepreneurial support and capacity-building opportunities, it will enable them to impact the society at various levels’’.
