Premier Projects supported International Women’s Day 2021 through a number of initiatives across Africa.
The community department of Premier Bet and Premier Loto has long been an advocate of women’s empowerment on the continent. This was shown in their partnership with UKANI, a Malawian NGO that supports women.
They showed this again on March 8, 2021, through donations and partnerships in Cameroon, Senegal, Chad, Malawi and Congo Brazzaville.
In Malawi and Brazzaville (Republic of Congo), Premier Projects signed partnership deals to support women in business.
The Shaping Our Future Foundation supports women and girls from rural areas of Malawi, to stay in education and realise their potential.
With their guidance, Premier Projects will support the business of 40 woman in the town of Nathenje. They will build a maize mill to help bring stable income to the women and help them elevate their business potential.
In Brazzaville, Premier Projects collaborated with the CJID, an NGO dedicated to action research and community development support for the benefit of youth and gender.
The donation included materials to help women propel their skills at sewing and hairdressing.
