First Anniversary Celebration, July 18, 2023

To celebrate our one year Anniversary. We partnered with CASE hospital and offered a free medical camp in our community.
More than 100 women and youth were tested; BMI, breast cancer screening, blood pressure, HIV, among others and did a wellness sensitization as well about keeping healthy.
We also invited other women manufacturers to come and exhibit their products. .
When a woman stands up for herself, she stands up for others as well.
The last year was bumpy but worth it and we would not have done it with out your support.
