There is so much work to be done to help vulnerable women and girls in the world, and we are grateful for individuals and organizations that are rolling up their sleeves and doing the hard work against all odds.
One of them is Adebola Adefioye, who is ensuring that some vulnerable women, girls, and youth get the opportunity to live a better life through empowerment, leadership training, mentorship, and coaching, provided through the Foundation she founded.
About Adebola Adefioye
Adebola Adefioye is a resilient woman who helps other women and girls build resilience and thrive.
Her organization – Afro Women and Youth Foundation, works to provide support to women, girls, and youth in Toronto, Canada.
They have recently extended their services to Africa starting from Nigeria. In September, they will launch a Gender-Based Violence intervention program in partnership with Attitude Development International (ADI) Lagos, to mark their first anniversary.
As a Registered Early Childhood Educator and Certified Coach, Trainer & Speaker with The John Maxwell Team, she also provides leadership training, mentorship, and coaching to Women, Girls, Youth, and Early Childhood Educators.
Why She Started Afro Women and Youth Foundation
Growing up, she had many struggles ranging from polygamy issues in her family to dropping out of the University and experiencing sexual violence. She saw that women and girls are very vulnerable and decided she would work to provide support to them.
Through personal development and mentorship, she has built resilience over the years and it gives her great joy to extend support to fellow women and girls who need it.
She is glad she can now do this on the platform of Afro Women and Youth Foundation and as a Certified Coach.
How AWYF Can Help You
At AWYF, they provide leadership training and mentorship to women. They hold regular physical and virtual empowerment events that women can attend to connect with others to learn how to build confidence and improve their lives.
With the help of their sponsors, they will start a Gender-Based Violence (GBV) intervention program that provides zero-interest small business loans to victims of GBV who have officially reported their cases and have established small businesses in the south-west states of Nigeria. This will start in September.
