April 2019 Edition

The month of April at W.TEC has been a fulfilling one considering the achievements made with new partnerships forged, empowerment programs held for ladies  and the announcement of our 2019 SheCreates camps to be held in 4 states nationwide. Thus it gives us  pleasure to continually share our progress with you our friends whom we attribute our achievements due to your  support and kind cooperation.  
This month, the Rotary Club - Falomo District of Lagos partnered with W.TEC and AAAF to empower women with recycling and digital marketing skills. The week long workshop was an eye opener for participants on the many business opportunities they can establish affordably. Special thanks to members of Rotary Club - Falomo District for supporting this wonderful initiative which will make participants of the workshop financially independent.
