Diverse Participation
200 participants will be selected from the 17 states of southern Nigeria for the 2021 cohort. To support the comprehensive rehabilitation and reintegration of returned migrants, 50 female returnees will also take part in the program.

Why AWE?
Women’s meaningful economic participation is integral to achieving greater security and stability around the world.

U.S. Consulate Public Affairs Officer Stephen Ibelli said;

“Women have a key role to play in Nigeria’s future prosperity…as we have seen time and time again, when women do better, countries do better, communities do better, and families do better.”

Leading local business leaders will help facilitate the intensive program scheduled to run from July to September 2021. In addition, participants will receive access to DreamBuilder, a blended business training course developed through a partnership between Arizona State University’s Thunderbird School of Global Management and global copper mining company Freeport- McMoRan.
