Soulace Africa, a non-governmental organisation is set to empower 45 widows with Adire production and fashion design. The training will also feature learning of soft skills to improve women’s mental health, well-being and approach to conflict resolution.
Soulace Africa, dedicated to mitigating the impact of violence and conflict on war widows and orphans, has launched a two-month intensive skills training for veteran widows.
Speaking, Soulace Africa Founder, Peter Adeeko, urged the women to maximise the skill acquisition programme, tagged “War widows and orphans development scheme”.
Recounting the events that shaped his childhood, Adeeko said he was driven by a need to ensure that veterans’ widows do not end up as victims with no choice. Also present were Soulace Africa’s co-founder, Busola Adeeko; Director of WHOOPYUN Fashion, Omobolanle Adedeji and other experienced resource persons.
The project, now in its third edition, has so far impacted 250 veteran widows across Nigeria.
