‘Woman was made from the ribs of man.
Not from his head to be above him, nor from his feet to be trampled upon.
But close to his shoulder to be equal,
Under his arm to be protected,
And close to his heart to be loved’.
Women have always been the fabric that holds the society together starting from the family unit.
Their immense contribution to the family and by extension society cannot be over emphasized.
And yet, in every circumstance; they are always at the receiving end. They take the burden of building the home; yet they get abused. They take the burden of reproduction; still yet they get abused.
They take the initiative of entrepreneurship; they get no recognition.
They take the responsibility of building the society; they get no appreciation.
They take the herculean task of leadership; they get hardly appreciated.
In every aspect of human life; the influence of the women folk are always indelible.
A woman is a bundle of abundant strength and courage;
Women are resourceful, enduring, kind, compassionate and preserving.
It’s the reason why against all odds; she still thrives, rise; is rising and will continue to rise.
And in the process; leave her footprints in the sands of time.
For She; is a SHEROE. And it is against this backdrop that we will immortalize, appreciate, celebrate, pay tribute and honor all the women who inspire us with the aim of inspiring and motivating the younger generation especially young ladies to aim for their dreams. To overcome mediocrity, have an ambition and the courage to go for it.
Sheroes.ng is designed to not only honor the women who inspire us; but to also provide for our Daughters a platform on which they will draw strength and inspiration from.
It is my hope that our daughters grow up empowered and never define themselves by their gender but by the qualities that make them intelligent, strong, courageous, caring, compassionate successful and responsible women. And to strive towards improving their societies and the world for humanity.
VISION AND MISSION
We want to be able to tell our own stories and that of the women who inspire us.
We want to take charge of our history; we want to own it, we want to write it so that we may inspire the younger generation.
We seek to give women a voice; be their voice and give them hope.
WHO IS A SHEROE?
Every woman who makes a choice and makes it work for her is a SHEROE.
