Let’s also tell you that, the celebrant and her husband took the celebration to another level the following day, which was 15th Monday. That was the day over 600 widows were empowered under the Chris Bamidele Onalaja Foundation (CBOF).
According to the celebrant, she said: “There were lots of widows here today: we have widows that we have empowered with sewing machines. We have empowered some with hairdryers. We are also giving out cash to widows who have gone through our training on soap making and sobo. We will give them 50 thousand naira each for them to startup. We have also given out grinding machines to some sets.
We are going to be doing this quarterly. Why the need for widows every year?
At Chris Bamidele Empowerment Foundation, we have areas of concentration which widow is one of them. We have an education where we give out scholarships to students. We have a different focus but the widow is one of our areas, Mrs Tolulope Onalaja.
She explains further why this year’s birthday was bigger. “Actually, I have been away for a while but my team has been working on planning this year’s birthday. Usually, my birthday is an avenue to reach out and to give back. You were there last year when I celebrated my 40th and I reached out to 40 widows. If you remember then that I said something that day, that my next target would be 1 thousand. I will empower 1 thousand widows this year and that would come up on Monday 15; a day after my birthday. I would do this in a way that what I would be giving can set them up for a course. I would be giving out grinding machines. We have hair driers, sewing machines. We also have a group that has learned how to make soaps. We also have another group that has learnt how to make drinks. All that I have mentioned have been supplied and distributed already. Some have already been given sewing machines to sew. We would be having 600 widows this year and 150 widows per quarter. We couldn’t match them because of the pandemic and this why we had to split it.
