#1Mother1Child: A New Concept of Motherhood

Sometime last year, our office got a message from a woman who said, “Dear AWLO, please my daughter has been out of school. She is one of the beneficiaries of the #1Mother1Child Program, but has not received the regular school fees from your organization yet. Please send my daughter’s school fees so she can go back to school.” Then it dawned on us that we are running out of Mothers.

Hitherto, 1Mother1Child encouraged women leaders/members of AWLO – mothers, to support at least one child whether girl or boy. To sponsor, and mentor this child to attain any level of education.

[Tweet “Motherhood is a concept not just for mothers. We collectively are mothers of the future; charged to preserve the future generation”]

Now we realize that Motherhood is a concept not just for mothers. We collectively are mothers of the future; charged to preserve the future generation. To provide them with the necessary opportunities, infrastructure, legacy, and tangible support to leverage, to attain their full potential and become better leaders.

#1Mother1Child is an initiative of African Women in Leadership Organisation (AWLO), spearheaded by 1Mother1Child Project Director; H.E. Alanyingi Sylva. AWLO envisions that children from poor background can have a fair chance at education.

We are inspired by stories like, the Transformational Leader; Goodluck Jonathan, who says he grew up with no shoes, Oprah Winfrey’s rise irrespective of an abusive childhood, Albert Einstein who was termed dyslexic, and how Ben Carson rose from a poor background to becoming a world sought-after Neurosurgeon. These are signs that every child truly has a shot at attaining their full potential.

So far, the #1Mother1Child program has 100 plus children trained to various levels of education; with some introduced to vocational trainings, and international scholarships.

It is our dream that #1Mother1Child grows bigger with everyone delivering their part as mothers of the future. It is bigger than just mothers, we are all custodians of the future. It behooves us all to play our part in the making of future leaders.

How to look the part for #AWLOINDUCTION2017

We are excited as it draws closer to #AWLOInduction2017. AWLO Induction holds at Le Meridien Ibom Hotel & Golf Resort, Akwa Ibom State, on 15th December 2017. We are looking forward to converging Women of African Descent and Distinguished Leaders.

Are you thinking of ideas to dress up for #AWLOINDUCTION2017? We can give you a great head start!

We know women like to play dress up, and they will be the ones reading this right now. So, let’s start with them. (This article may not be beneficial to inductees because their chapters may have a uniform dress code for the dinner).

The day starts off with the #1Mother1Child awareness walk. This is for everyone to be a part of AWLO’s dream for every child/young adult to grow up with the tangible support of a mother, – a woman who is committed to ensuring that one child lives her fullest potential; whether boy or girl. AWLO believes that Motherhood is a call to Leadership.

We anticipate that 300 people should get involved in creating awareness for #1Mother1Child. Women, young people, men, press, humanitarians, and others. Participants can buy Awareness walk Tee-Shirts at the venue, they can also buy ahead of the day by calling +234 812 586 6901.

Back to the dress code. To go with your tees, get a pair of pants and comfy sneakers or ballerinas to get you in the mood for walk. Don’t forget to come with your selfie sticks because we will also be taking a lot of photographs. We will walk all the way to the workshop. Voila, this will be your workshop look too.

A dinner ensemble works for the grand finale – the Induction Dinner. The red carpet will be prepared for you. One thing though, don’t miss out the part that African culture is at the core of AWLO’s essence, and guests hardly disappoint. You don’t want to be surprised.

That’s it, see you at #AWLOINDUCTION2017! Register here

Tell a Sister, to tell a Sister, about #AWLOINDUCTION2017

Every AWLO event has a takeaway, and this time we are gearing up for #AWLOINDUCTION2017. At African Women in Leadership organisation, AWLO, we seek to advance the status of women in leadership.

[Tweet “AWLO Is every woman’s stepping stone to leadership”] We have been privileged to share some priceless moments with women.

Some of them shared their personal takeaways from AWLO Events:

Joanna said:

The program was a great one. I was paired with a mentor who was everything I thought a mentor should be: warm, friendly and easy to relate with, with a great sense of fashion as well! She took time to share with me and gave me lots of pointers on how to plan my life and build up my skills.

Gladys Ohaba said:

I learnt to manage my time, priorities, energy, thoughts, words and personal life, and how to strike a balance between work and personal life, the value of time and knowing your capabilities as an individual.

Also, I learnt that there’s nothing wrong in delegating responsibilities, that when you delegate you are improving someone’s life while improving yours (so you don’t break down). We are encouraged to let our emotions translate in what we do, create an atmosphere of positivity and exert self-control.

Share these life-changing testimonials with a sister, to invite her to #AWLOINDUCTION2017 at Le Meriedien Ibom Hotel & Golf Resort Akwa Ibom, on 15th December 2017. See more testimonials below.
