We are focused on three central themes

HEALTH, EDUCATION & SKILL ACQUISITION

Health

HIWA is committed to preventive care and interventions

In her tireless pursuit of better community well-being, HIWA champions the cause of Health by focusing on the prevention of avoidable diseases and ensuring timely and effective interventions.

Through the NGO, she strives to create a robust healthcare system that not only addresses existing health challenges but also empowers individuals with the knowledge and resources to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

By fostering a culture of preventive care, HIWA helps create a community that is resilient against preventable diseases, where women and the girl child can thrive in good health.

Education

HIWA is committed to illuminating the paths of women and the girl child through the battle against illiteracy.

Recognizing the transformative power of education, HIWA takes on the challenge of combating illiteracy within her community. HIWA’s commitment to education extends beyond the mere provision of resources; it involves creating an environment where learning becomes a beacon of hope.

Through innovative programs and initiatives, she seeks to illuminate paths for women and the girl chil previously shrouded in the darkness of illiteracy.

By fostering a love for learning and breaking down barriers to education, she envisions a community where every individual, regardless of background, has the opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills for a brighter future.

SKILL ACQUISITION

HIWA is committed to bridging the divide for poverty eradication.

Poverty eradication is at the forefront of HIWAs mission as she recognizes the pivotal role of skill acquisition in empowering individuals to break free from the shackles of poverty.

Through strategic initiatives and vocational training programs, she aims to equip women and the girl child with the skills needed to pursue sustainable livelihoods.

By bridging the gap between aspiration and opportunity, she envisions a community where economic empowerment becomes a powerful tool for breaking the cycle of poverty.

Her focus on skill acquisition is not just about providing a means of income; it’s about fostering a sense of self-reliance and independence, paving the way for lasting positive change.

Mrs Binta Anthony Kokong

As a retired civil servant, it has really not been easy after four years of retirement with no gratuity nor pension, but with the help of HIWA women empowerment program I am supported in diverse ways HIWA has help in keeping me busy than staying idle with no work to do, the help of this Non-Government Organization has enabled me start a small scale business within the comfort of my home. Talking about the business, I do get contracts of producing some cosmetics like liquid wash, it is mostly order during occasion to be shared as souvenirs.

Even order like Izal, Shampoo, Petroleum Jelly, Room Freshener, Anti-Septics and Ointment (Balm). It has also helped in my home because I do them for our consumption. It has saved me a lot of money since I don't have spent a kobo buying any of those products from the market. My children have also learned from me and as a mother I am proud to have taught them because I know it will help them in keeping their homes.

Therefore I encourage other women to come out in mass even if they have their work or business it can be part of keeping their homes. All thanks to God almighty and also to Hope Initiative for Women in African (HIWA).
