Category Archives: Women And Girls Empowerment


Royal Youth Networks recently launched the SWAG (Skill-up Women And Girls) Project as part of efforts to improve the quality of life of our women and girls. Our goal is to empower 1 million women and girls over the next few years through practical hands-on skills acquisition training. We have identified a few skill areas and our immediate focus is on easily transferable skills that require minimum startup capital.

In this second edition, we will focus on 3 different skill areas. Participants will have the chance to:

  1. Acquire practical hands-on skills in any or all 3 skill areas
  2. Learn how to run and manage their businesses profitably as well as secure needed finances for their businesses
  3. Interact with a Family Life Practitioner and mentor to enable them find the perfect work-family-life-business balance.
  4. Meet other people with similar interests and form new partnerships for future networking and business development.

Join us in Lagos on October 7th & 8th, 2016 as we empower a new generation of Africa’s business leaders.

About 70% of women/girls in Nigeria live below the poverty line. According to an earlier UNICEF report on the Nigeria situation, the majority of Nigerians are poor with 71 per cent of the population living on less than one dollar a day and 92 per cent on less than two dollars a day.

The SkillUp Women And Girls (S.W.A.G) Project is an initiative of Royal Youth Networks that seeks to empower ONE Million women and girls with transferable hands-on skills required to make a living as well as grow their capacities to become successful entrepreneurs. It is open to women and girls aged 15-45 years.

Join us in Lagos from 8th – 10th September for a special skill acquisition training on ANKARA CRAFT!
