Studio24 Nigeria, a professional photography and multimedia company has unveiled its Empowerment and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project for women tagged “SUMTHIN FOR THE GIRLS” (#Sumthin4DGirls). The project has Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF) as its anchor partner. It is a training, mentorship and funding programme to empower 100 young women of age bracket 18-35 at the grass root level across different states and regions.
The idea is to empower young women with a passion for photography, makeup and business to start off their own businesses. The pilot phase will be in Lagos state and will spread across different states and region in the country.
After the final selection of 100 is done, these women will be given paramilitary-style boot camp training that will include various aspects of regimental, mind clinic, leadership, arts education, makeup, photography as well as equip them with entrepreneurship skills that will help them run viable creative businesses of their own in Nigeria.
Applications for this pilot phase is now open to all women between the ages of 18-35 years living in vulnerable conditions, who are resident in Lagos State ONLY.
