Speaking at the event, the Executive Director of the Foundation, Korede David, who was represented by the Program Manager, Kunle Ajayi said that the foundation aims at empowering the less privileged in the society, as the women play a very vital role in strengthening the nation. He further stated their commitment to helping and protecting the boy child as well as women from low-income households/communities in Lagos State and Nigeria. Kunle also told the women to involve their children in their business saying this will further ensure the sustainability of the business as well as reduce unemployment as the children will bring new innovations into the business.

Elizabeth Annam, one of the key facilitators at the event charged the women not to spend their capital. She explained to the women that they need to separate their profit from their capital so as not to go bankrupt because it is very easy to spend both capital and profit if care is not taken.
