Save the Woman Background History and Progress
Save The Woman started as the brainchild of Olalekan Odedeyi in 2015, as a result of his involvement in Millennium Development Advocacy training while serving as a member of National Youth Service Corps. Olalekan developed an interest in MDG Goal 3, which seeks to promote gender equality and empower women.
He established contact with the Welfare Department within the Nigerian prisons service to conduct a thorough needs assessment. It was revealed that being put in prison in Nigeria is like a bomb exploding in the women’s lives.
