In honour of International Women’s Day, which was marked on March 8, Nike Art Gallery Founder, Chief Mrs Nike Davies-Okundaye, invited 30 of the displaced women we work with and trained them in tie-dye making on March 12th at the Lekki gallery.
While addressing the women, Mama Nike, as she is fondly called, stated that in line with the International Women’s Day theme, PRESS FOR PROGRESS, it is important to understand that steadfastness and hard work are the key principles in fulfilling a woman’s purpose on earth. She urged the women to apply these principles and press for progress, regardless of their backgrounds or societal class.
At the end of the training, she gave each of the women tie-dye materials to further their interest in the craft as well as some food items and cash.
In appreciation, Sesor’s Programmes officer, Nancy Ogwah thanked Mama Nike, on behalf of Sesor, for her generosity saying, “Sesor is pleased with this partnership and hopes for more empowerment opportunities in the future for other resilient women. Many thanks to Nike Art Gallery for this wonderful opportunity.”
