I first heard about the moremi initiative from a friend who happens to be a volunteer ,and then subsequently I started reading up on their activities on the web. It feels good to know that there is an organization that is really genuine in its effort to motivate ,mentor and educate the african female youth into becoming women leaders which goes a long way towards eradicating poverty in the society and also preventing these young ladies from turning towards other negative vices in the society and becoming nuisances to their families.
Indeed ,The Moremi Initiative for women leaders is just the type of non profit organization the african society really need at such a time like this.
