The Women Housing Plan Initiative (WHPI), has trained no fewer than 25 women on business and organisational development to put them at par with their counterparts globally.

Participants at the training included members of the W4W, Chief Executive Officers and entrepreneurs drawn from different organisations across the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
“The objective of this training is to discuss the concept of organisations, explore the different organisations and capacity assessment tools and develop a capacity action plan.
“When you keep improving yourself, you get better. It is never too late.
“The capacity training will change the way we run our businesses or organisations,” she said.
Ibrahim, who is also the coordinator, W4W organisation urged the participants to take the training seriously so as to upgrade their skills and knowledge.
Dr Ejike Orji, the president and founder, Community Development Foundation, made a presentation on how to develop a capacity action plan.
