The Women of Essence Foundation was founded out of the desire of the trustees to create a platform through which women can be trained, empowered and mentored to discover, pursue and fulfil God’s purpose for their lives. The foundation promotes activities aimed at helping women unleash their hidden potentials by empowering them with the right resources that will help them. We strongly believe this will help women gain their self-esteem and confidence and make them of great worth and value to their families, communities and society at large. This we do through seminars, workshops, conferences, skills acquisition training, counseling and mentoring programmes. (Prior to the official registration of the foundation, informal meetings, trainings and counseling sessions had been held with women over the past 5 years before the decision to have a more formal and organized set up through the foundation).
