Empowering women and girls is the most effective tool for a country’s development.  This is as much a casting off of disempowerment, prejudices and stereotypes as anything else.  Women can be empowered through inclusion in community training, education of both men and women about women’s rights and gender equality, support of single and group based micro finance and the strengthening of women’s decision making role.

Support of women is one of the four key priorities for Mayflower.  It is hoped to raise US$1,000,000 per annum for a period of 5 years to provide support for the empowerment of women in Ebute-Metta.  Per annum it is hoped that up to 3,000+ women will be empowered. The objective being not only to create economic benefit for them and their families but also the achievement of broader based women’s participation in the community.
 

The Mayflower Foundation's work focus is on five main topical areas, with each of the areas having four programmes.

The empowerment programme areas are:

1. Support for SMME’s
2. Empowerment of women
3. Empowerment of youth
4. Animal husbandry

The five key initiative areas are:

HEALTHCARE
EDUCATION
