Faces of Trade: Empowering Women to Become Engines for Private Sector Expansion

On October 11, 2014, Naija Worldwide Charities and Global Women Africa Network (GLOW) hosted a global townhall meeting at the CSO Policy Forum at the World Bank during its annual general meeting.

The purpose of the forum was to provide a live platform to encourage discussion on sustainable solutions to existing challenges and facilitate information sharing at the global level of successful actions taken by women or in support of women in Nigeria, Africa and indeed worldwide.

Our target is to get people from around the world to support local efforts in Nigeria and other African countries to empower women and girls and establish a hub for women by 2015 to encourage sustainable peace and economic growth. Topics included impact investment and development, managing insecurity and growth, women as change agents, energy opportunities and risks.
