    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    According to otu, it was reported that, the Nigerian prison system is witnessing an enormous increase in people relapsing into crime and criminality, recidivists and thus, the development has challenged the practicality and feasibility of rehabilitation programmes in Nigerian prisons.

    However, Save the Woman is currently in early phases, it is hoped that the outcome of the programme will mimic the success of former programs across the globe, and make a significant difference to the reoffending rate on Nigerian women.

    Save The Woman Project was established with the aim to help Nigerian female inmates learn the skills they would need in order not to re offend upon their release. These skills consisted of a combination of manual skills (chalk making) and also business and enterprise skills to give the females the best chance on a better life.

    The project is reliant on volunteers running the chalk making sessions with the inmates with rented chalk presses. However, this means that currently the project is not self-sustainable, therefore after forming a partnership with Enactus Teesside, Save the Woman aspires to raise the funds in order to buy the machines.

    Save the Woman is a much needed service in Nigeria, giving the women in the prisons, the hope for a better future and to encourage Nigeria to end poverty and enhance socio and economic development.
    We were aware that in Nigeria, there were no Non government organisations (NGO) tackling this problem, so in March 2016 the project registered to become one (Women Socio-Economic Empowerment Initiative), to better help the female inmate we seek to empower.

    So far the project has helped 2 women to gain jobs following the their release from prison, and one of those has being of help other 16 volunteers in Nigeria.
