In a bid to recharge its commitment to Empowering Women for Political Leadership and Social Change, the Evolving Women In Progress (EWIP) Lagos Chapter has officially inaugurated its new executive members ready to steer the affairs of the Non-Governmental Organisation to a new level.

At the inauguration held during the organisation’s first annual general meeting of 2024, Jumoke Saliu popularly known as “EWIP’s Jagaban” returned as the State Coordinator, while famous Nigerian Event Manager and Philanthropist, Adebimpe Akinfolajimi (Honebols) was sworn-in as the Program Director.

Others include Odebode Sherifat Adebukola as General Secretary, Yinka Kenny as PRO, Clara Laja as Treasurer, Bushirat Shittu and Olabimpe Ogunyemi.

During the meeting, the organisation’s leadership reeled out various impactful programs, including medical outreaches, educational support for school children, and advocacy for women’s rights it is set to embark on as part of its yearly activities. The newly inaugurated executives are set to continue and expand on these initiatives in 2024.

Evolving Women In Progress (EWIP) under the leadership of National President, Hajia Fatima and Matron, Folashade Tinubu, is a non-governmental organization focused on mitigating violence against women during elections and encouraging women’s participation in politics. However, it also serves as a social gathering catering to the needs of women across all ages, religions, and tribes. Since its inception about a year ago, EWIP has conducted medical outreaches for women and paid school fees for young girls, among other philanthropic gestures.

EWIP operates independently and is not affiliated with the government. While it has assisted some politicians in winning elections, its primary focus is on empowering women and encouraging their involvement in governance.

The organization’s impact areas include advocacy for women’s participation in governance, women empowerment, advocacy for women’s rights and against all forms of discrimination, career development opportunities for women, and humanitarian services.
