ABOUT DOMINION AFRICAN LADIES
Mentoring is key when it comes to life shaping. However, most young people find it difficult to get closer to the older ones they admire to seek guidance. As a result, there are many mature and experienced ladies who have lot to share with the youth but this has become difficult, or almost elusive, due to lack of appropriate medium to organize this knowledge and resource sharing. Others also wish they could mentor the younger generation but the nature of their work is time consuming and they never get there. For several years, I had to battle with sleepless nights of unfulfilled passion of promoting the well being of our younger generation with resources we already have and only needs to be harnessed for the purpose.
Dominion Leaders Foundation (DLF) is the outcome of these thoughts and deliberations over the years. The Foundation is a nongovernmental organisation that does not seek to make profit but rather provide a platform for sharing of all kinds of good resources and impacting on the younger generation. Our aim is to offer career guidance to young females and remove or at least minimize the impediments in their career development and choice. The DLF team has realized that mentoring is a key to success for the youth, especially the girls, hence the establishment of ladies club to remove the barrier and bring together females of all classes, age, profession, nationality and orientation through formal and informal means with the aim of providing assistance to the less privilege young ladies and budding girls.
In another sense, this approach is very crucial because ladies who find themselves in certain unfavourable situations in life also often become disorderly and unapproachable, especially when not married after attaining a certain age, after divorce, loss of partner, or simply because of over reliance on men who tend to disappoint them at certain point in time. Some even go to the extent of begging before feeding their children. Once they have nowhere to turn they eventually get into depression or prostitution. There are existing organisations that are taking care of such unfortunate girls and women, therefore, Dominion African Ladies Club is not going to focus on such ladies but rather provide preventive measures for our girls not to find themselves in such unfortunate situations. This project seeks to prepare girls and ladies enough to face future challenges (psychological, emotional, physiological and economical) by giving them hope and equipping them to prepare and face life’s challenges.
Ladies, how can we sit unconcerned? What can we do as ladies to save our less fortunate ones from falling victims to such an “ekankar”? (Please what is this? Looks like a Religion and should not be mixed with your organisation). Let us pull them along with us while we are capable of helping. You can simply mentor someone to save positively touch their lives but you must first get the platform to do that. This is what we are bringing to your door-step. Let’s join hands now!
