As the month of March, which dedicated to women celebration winds down, women are encouraged to think equal, build smart and innovate for change. This the UN Women believes is pivotal to women empowerment.

The trainer, Stella Uzochukwu further explains the process of training them.
The trained women and young girls who before now didn’t know the use of mobile phones other than for phone calls and text messages also expressed optimism on the impact the training will have on their ventures.
