LAGOS, (CAJ News) – IN a bid to support and reposition the female gender for growth,the Women Empowerment and Enlightenment Campaign ( WEEC ) in Nigeria is organizing a creative essay competition for young girls within the month of August.

The online competition, which is targeted at females between ages 18 – 25 years in Lagos, will run from August 10 to 31.

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

It strives to educate, prepare young females for later life and identify potential talents with productive mindsets.

Kayode Odukoya, Head Coordinator of the WEEC, said the essay competition was a platform created to help develop growing women with the possibilities of catching them young.

“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,” said Odukoya.

WEEC is tasked with the sole responsibility to help local female individuals fulfill their potential.
