Kudirat Initiative for Democracy (KIND)
Very few women in Nigeria attain leadership positions in politics or education. Kudirat Initiative for Democracy (KIND) works to end gender discrimination in Nigeria and cultivate a generation of assertive, empowered young women to take on leadership positions in university and in their lives beyond. Through training, mentoring, and internships, KIND facilitates concrete next steps for members of its network to serve as community leaders and role models for younger adolescent girls.
EMpower’s fifth grant to KIND will grow the organization’s entrepreneurship and internship programmes, continue proven strategies for community social change activities, and carry out new strategies to increase the impact and cost effectiveness of KIND’s structured leadership training.
