HOW DID THE IDEA OF WOMAN TO WOMAN COME TO YOU?
Woman to Woman is a quarterly interactive programme which seeks to equip women for excellent living.

Women go through stuff: breakdown, pains, wars, abuse, and rejection, among other things.

Also, some women wander through life playing different roles, wearing masks to fit the occasion and pretending to be who they are not and settling for less than they deserve.


It is in view of this the idea of reaching women, help them live purposefully and enjoy life to the fullest, regardless of their challenges, came about.

This led to the formation of an online closed group for women.

The online group which started 3years ago has over 700 members.

Articles, true life stories and inspirational thoughts are shared from time to time on the group to help women build capacity and embrace God's truth.

In 2015, there was need to create a viable platform for women to meet, interact, unwind, share ideas, swap experiences, insights, inspiration, break limits and open new frontiers of possibilities. Hence, the quarterly forum was created.

It is hoped that through this interactive forum, many women will discover purpose, take our place in destiny, impact our sphere of influence and become all that God destined us to be.


HOW MANY EDITIONS HAVE YOU HELD SO FAR?
The first meeting hosted in November had about 46 women in attendance.
So far, we have had 2 editions of the programme. The third edition holds this Saturday, May 28, 2016.


HOW DO YOU CHOOSE YOUR SPEAKERS?
Women renowned for integrity, sound values and excelling in their fields of endeavours are invited as guest speakers or panelists. This is usually based on personal contact with them or by recommendation.


WHAT HAS THE RECEPTION FOR THE PROGRAMME BEEN LIKE?
The responses from these programmes have been amazing as many have been greatly inspired and enlightened. Given the liberty created, they pour out their hearts freely.

In view of its positive impact, some are even demanding that it should be a monthly meeting. Participants usually crave for more time, not wanting the programme to end, even when we have exceeded the scheduled time which is 2hours. Nonetheless, we are stringent with time.

Participants are also exposed to trainings and skills development programmes introduced by group members.


Woman to Woman is not a religious programme. As such, it is open to women of different faiths. However, with the word of God being capable of changing lives, we do not shy away from it.


Beyond the quarterly programme, it is hoped that Woman to Woman will  be transmitted on air, empower women through  various trainings and skills acquisition programmes, provide support for needy women, be it financial, legal, counselling, etc
