The challenges that face our young girls today is enormous, some Nigerian young girls graduate from public high school, but with no prospects for jobs or further education, they end up working and living on the streets in large numbers.

After a year, about 70% of people are at risk of: becoming single mothers, contracting HIV/AIDS, becoming victims of sex trafficking, or dying as a result of botched abortions are all possibilities.

Poverty, illiteracy, and a rise in gender-based violence aggravate the issue, with a negative effect on young girls. Men stand to now take advantage of these young ladies by enticing them with money to take care of their daily needs. But this can stop when these young girls have stable income to take care of their basic needs. So the importance of empowering them with different skills of their choice become very necessary. This where Peculiar Women of Destiny International (PWODI) comes in to help out. We train young girls to acquire skills that will make them self-employed and we also mentor them with our various mentors on ground to reorient them for a dignified life and become a source of inspiration to other girls.

PWODI is well established to help give values to these set of young girls in our society. We have carefully picked some key areas to focus on at the beginning stage of our movement to give dignity to our young girls in Nigeria.

Fashion design

Is a form of art dedicated to the creation of clothing and other lifestyle accessories. Modern fashion design is divided into two basic categories: haute couture and ready-to-wear. The haute couture collection is dedicated to certain customers and is custom sized to fit these customers exactly.

Shoe and Bag Making

Is the process of making footwear.

Originally, shoes were made one at a time by hand, often by groups of shoemakers, or cobblers. In the 18th century, dozens or even hundreds of masters, journeymen and apprentices (both men and women) would work together in a shop, dividing up the work into individual tasks. A customer could come into a shop, be individually measured, and return to pick up their new shoes in as little as a day.  Everyone needed shoes, and the median price for a pair was about one day’s wages for an average journeyman.  This is another area our girls can flourish in in Nigeria.

We provide this opportunity for girls that are interested in this skill to be empowered in becoming self-employed at the end of the program. We shall help establish graduate from this skill by providing necessary equipment needed to start on their own.
