About Us

Women Of Virtue International Initiative (WOVII) is a grassroots initiative established and fully registered in Nigeria with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC). This initiative was conceived using the results of a Needs Assessment Survey (NAS), and the unanimous outcry for poverty eradication through local government capacity building programmes at all levels of community development and medical intervention suitable for economically deprived citizens for whom access to resources are scarce. Hence, this initiative is in line with the Government’s aim of liberating vulnerable communities from their current situation of hopelessness to that of empowerment through programmes that are rich in value creation.

You Have the Power to make the world a better place.
