One of Nigeria's leading carrier, Dana Air, has partnered with The ELOY Foundation's Business Shower to Empower Women in five states in Nigeria, including Rivers, Kano, Abuja, Abia and Lagos
The ELOY business Shower is an educative business gathering specifically organised for women in business to inspire and encourage them to build thriving businesses.
Speaking on the sponsorship, the Deputy CEO of Dana Air Sukhjinder Mann said, Dana Air's corporate social responsibility is impact driven and broad- based and we are proud to be doing this in about six states in Nigeria.
Women are a massive asset to any country and we want to add to their development while seeing them grow their skills and small businesses to the benefit of the youth and children in the society."
The ELOY Awards Foundation is about empowering and challenging thousands of women to be more and do more by providing access to resources, business skills and tools for them to be able to grow, transform and sustain their businesses, which will in turn benefit their families and the community at large said Tewa Onasanya, founder of The ELOY Awards Foundation.
"In subsequent years, we have been able to enroll women who are small business owners onto the one year Eloy foundation Sustainable Empowerment Program( SEP) with mentorship for six months, and access to all they need as entrepreneurs: Information, training, and affordable financing" she added.
The business shower moves to Abuja on the 30th of June, while Kano and Abia will be on the 2nd and 7th of July respectively.
Dana Air is one of Nigeria's leading airlines with a varied fleet of 9 aircraft and daily flights to major cities in Nigeria.
