Blessed Women Fellowship Empowers Over 120 Ladies With Skills, Starter Packs

The Blessed Women Fellowship of the Christian Community Church International Lagos have empowered over 120 women with skills that would help them improve their livelihood and provided them with tools required to start their businesses immediately.

The skills empowerment initiative which is in its seventh edition was part of the annual Blessed Women Convention with the theme, Woman of the Spirit.

During the empowerment programme, which kicked off the two-day event, women were trained in six skills that they could immediately put to use and earn income for themselves.

These skills include wig making, stoning on clothes and beading on clothes, Zobo making, baking, soap making and digital marketing training.

Over 120 women participated in the program and skills acquisition and some of the participants got cash grants to boost their businesses.

This was done with support from our Ireland church, CCCI Arklow and Mighty Men Fellowship.

Speaking on the empowerment initiative, Co-Resident Pastor of CCCILagos, Bose Abisagboola, said, “It is very important for us to impact the life of a woman. A woman represents a generation and that’s because she’s nurturing the children, she’s nurturing the home alongside her husband and they are together raising generations for God.

“Over time, empowering women has become very important to us because it changes the trajectory of their lives and fulfills God’s purpose for them which is a great deal. That is why we have been doing this for years. This is an opportunity to open women up to the various skills and talents within them. Especially the power of God’s Word to redirect their lives in alignment with His plans.”

Head of the Blessed Women Fellowship, Mrs Tunrola Babs-Fashola, commenting on the impact of the skills acquisition and subsequent grants given to outstanding participants said, “When a woman is empowered, she can do what God has called her to do, which is to be a helpmeet. She can support financially and emotionally, she can meet the needs of our community. Remember Dorcas in the Bible? She was an empowered woman who gave her best to her world.

“The women that we empower, we are bringing them out from the shadows, making them to be a blessing first to themselves, their families and their communities. We are doing and will continue to do our best and we believe that the women we have empowered know it in their hearts that they are not a liability to anybody.

“When a woman thinks she is a liability, it affects her identity and she may begin to see herself the way God doesn’t see her. We will tell her, there’s is something in your hands that can bless you, your family and your community.”

On the second day of the program, Mrs Ayodeji Megbope, the Chief Executive Officer of No Left Overs was on hand to charge women on strengthening their walk with God and the Holy Spirit.

Outstanding women in all the classes were presented with starter packs to enable them commence their businesses immediately.
