One Africa Forum Launches “Project Empower” in South Sudan

To achieve our goals, we have partnered with Banat Power Initiative, a local organization with a drive to empower young women and girls.

On Tuesday 26th March 2024, One Africa Forum officially launched our Empowerment and Mentorship Program for Young women and girls – “PROJECT EMPOWER”. This project launched in South Sudan will run through Banat Power Initiative in South Sudan. 

Banat Power Initiative is a local organization founded by Emma Kwaje, who is also the One Africa Forum National Coordinator in South Sudan. 

To achieve the ends of our objectives, organizations like Future Africa Leaders Foundation, and Scenius Hub to keep this incredible initiative alive. This collaboration aims to provide mentorship and foster the personal development, leadership skills, and creative expression of young girls.

At the Launch, we were honored to have distinguished guests and representatives from leading global organization like the United Nations Population funds (UNFPA), Union of Journalists, South Sudan, GoGirls ICT Initiative, and Directors from One Africa Forum who took turns to share their valuable insights and experiences.

Shruti (UNFPA) South Sudan, Majak Kuany Alier (Union of Journalists of South Sudan), Yine Yenki, (GoGirls ICT Initiative), Prince Edoseghe Erhahon and Mr. and Mrs. Jackson, Theo Masango and other directors and coordinators from One Africa Forum were among the dignitaries of the day.

Speaking at the launch, Edoseghe Prince Erhahon asserted, “Education is the cornerstone to empowerment.” While adding that “Empowerment means providing tools for economic independence” he assured the people that “The environment we are trying to create is to empower women to overcome challenges, this is because, “We value your voices.” He also called on all stakeholders to continue to support and promote such initiatives, stressing that “If we empower women, it is the foundation for our future.”

The event also featured a thought-provoking panel discussion on the topic: “The role of mentorship in building confidence, fostering leadership skills, and overcoming challenges faced by girls and young women.” The panel consisted of influential young girls and women who are passionate mentors themselves. The exchange of ideas and stories was truly inspiring and left a lasting impact on everyone in attendance.

One Africa Forum is excited to finally have this long awaited project kick-start through Banat Power Initiative, who strongly believes in the power of mentorship and its ability to transform lives. This program is designed to create a nurturing environment where young girls can flourish, dream big, and achieve their full potential.

By connecting them with experienced mentors, it aims to instill confidence, develop leadership abilities, and equip them with the necessary tools to overcome the challenges they may encounter.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all our partners, guests, mentors, and mentees for making this launch a resounding success. We also call in all mentors and partners to come on board for an even more life-transforming project. 

Together, we can create a brighter future for girls and young women, empowering them to become leaders and change-makers in their communities.
