The Live Abundantly!® Empowerment Initiative is a registered pro-active organisation (CAC/IT/No. 95723) committed to investing in our communities and promoting positive social change™ through the creation of social cognisance by enhancing the lives of women, children and the vulnerable by way of encouraging social awareness, advocacy and education.
We are committed to creating a respectful and secure society for all regardless of gender, age, socio-economic, religious or physiological limitation through educational advancement. National development and pride begins when citizens believe their presence is valued and they have a respected role in the safety and development of their society.
The Live Abundantly!® Empowerment Initiative addresses the high prevalence of violence against vulnerable groups – women, children and the physiological challenged. Though there is global awareness of the abuse against children and women, there is no legislation which condemns and demands the mandatory prosecution of perpetrators in Nigeria. In the African society, there remains a strong theory that women are inferior thus men (brothers, partners, husbands, religious leaders and even law enforcement) presume they have the right to subject women and children to abuse ranging from physical and sexual violence to acid attacks as well as trafficking and forced migration.
We endeavour to make education accessible to children plagued by physiological challenges and destitution because it is the key to economic and social development for individuals and society. The abandonment and massacre of children with birth defects in many developing countries is astounding and disturbing. Furthermore, the neglect of children due to poverty is heart-wrenching because it breeds psychological and emotional discord which can lead to violence and disruption in society.
Empowering women to know their rights and to prepare to participate in the economic sphere through education and job preparedness programmes changes the societal landscape. Women are better contributors to the social and economic development of their children, families and communities. By educating women, we open the door to participation in the Twenty-First century advancement and create a greater sense of worthiness. The empowerment of women is critical to the advancement of society.
To create an avenue for social consciousness and discourse as we strive to uphold the civil liberties of women and children regardless of their socio-economic standing.
To make education accessible for children who are marginalised by poverty and physiological differences.
To provide andragogical education for women seeking economic and social representation in the society.
The Live Abundantly!® Empowerment Initiative endorses a change in ethos through dialogue, education, legislation and elevation of victims’ voices without fear of repercussion or social stigmatisation. We aim to create a society where the rights of all citizens are respected and upheld, and all children regardless of social standing or physiology can access learning thereby improving their ability to contribute to the progress and welfare of society. Moreover, we support the education of women because it expands their awareness of their role in the future of their children and the development of the nation.
