The Cahira empowerment project was founded in October 2015, out of a need to empower marginalized girls and young women in Nigeria. This project aims to give them access to mentoring, vocational training and also educate them on basic financial and life skills to give them the fundamentals needed to gain employability skills that would enhance their ability to be employable or become entrepreneurs.
The name Cahira has its roots in the Irish language and means a female warrior, because that’s how we see the girls and women involved in the project. They are not defeated they are fighters. Against all odds they keep pressing forward.
