Lagos – In a bid to support and reposition the local women for growth, the Women Empowerment and Enlightenment Campaign (WEEC) has organised a creative essay competition for young girls.
The online competition, which is targeted at females between ages 18 – 25 years, will run until the end of the month.
It strives to educate, prepare young females to become entrepreneurs and identify potential talents with productive mindsets.
The WEEC essay competition has a theme - “How Can Men Contribute to Women Development in Our Society?” to help writers express their thoughts, creative perspectives, social development plans, solutions for gender equality, and a new cultural value system.

“This is just WEEC’s little way of contributing to education growth and we plan to organize the essay competition yearly with a mission to transform Nigeria into Africa’s hub of creativity in the next decade.”
