ENDOWMENT CAMPAIGN FOR FUNDING AND MEMBERSHIP

INTRODUCTION
The Mission for Women and Girls (MWG) hopes to be the leading philanthropic institution championing an equitable society for women and girls in Nigeria. For 12 years, we have given voice to women’s truths, changed public consciousness, and transformed public policy in our own little way.

The (MWG)’s movement changed our lives, the way we talk, the way we think.
Change our homes and work lives. It changed our sisters’ lives and our daughters’ and sons’ lives forever.
Now, we need to change our country and change the world.

“MWG.” symbolizes our institution’s deep trust in women to bring forward solutions to the most serious issues affecting their lives. For 12 years, the (MWG) has supported women’s solutions with our leadership, expertise, and financial resources. We have accomplished a great deal but we are far from done.

Our vision calls for an institutional endowment capable of providing ample resources for the long term. Change takes time. With so much at stake, we must move quickly. But we also must invest strategically, giving our strategies the power to be seen and heard.
Our vision is bold. Our request of you is equally so.
We are calling for (MWG200) daring and serious philanthropists to join with us to secure the advances we have won and create the future we desire. This group—The (MWG200) —will source for N15 million or more in the future of women and girls, bringing the (MWG) endowment to N30 million for our 20th anniversary in 2015.
Of equal importance, The (MWG200) will bring their intellect and passion to the (MWG) most important decision-making tables. Your voice and experience is crucial to securing the legacy of our foremothers and advancing public discourse and policymaking.
Five women and men have seeded this effort with over N1 million as of July 2000.
We invite you to join them.

Mission Statement:
The MWG supports the efforts of women and girls to govern their own lives and influence the world around them. Through its leadership, expertise, and financial support, the Foundation champions an equitable society by effecting change in public consciousness, law, philanthropy, and social policy.

Beliefs and Values Statement:
Our work is guided by our vision of a just and safe world where power and possibility are not limited by gender, race, class, sexual orientation, disability or age. We believe that equity and inclusion are the cornerstones of a true democracy in which the worth and dignity of every person are valued.

Some of our great believers think that:
“Our financial commitment to the MWG is the best way we can think of to teach our children about social responsibility and the issues that are important to us.
By virtue of our gift, they learn more about who we are.”

Our motive has consistently supported the premise that the more thoroughly a woman governs her own life, the more effectively she can function as a citizen; that the more she is included in the life of the country, the more effectively our democracy functions.

Throughout a 12-year history, the MWG has helped to counsel about 400 women and given little help to the needy and lost.
Today, we conduct advocacy and public education campaigns and direct resources of all kinds to cutting-edge projects in our little way across the neighborhood that found ourselves nurturing girls’ leadership, protect the health and safety of women and girls, and provide low-income women with the tools to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.

AN INVITATION
Get off the sidewalk. Walk the street with us into history.
12 years, the MWG has been a steady, reliable leader on women’s issues. They have the vision and experience to make real change in women’s lives across the country.
We are seeking again 200 men and women who will give a life endowment of N75, 000 each or more to run the mission. So, you are invited.

AHEAD OF OUR TIME
You must do the things you think you cannot do.
At one moment access to health care is the issue, at another moment the right of women on welfare to gain entry into higher education.
Women now, in our time, must secure the advances we have won. We cannot allow the clock to be turned back to an earlier time.

Working together, to lead generations of progress into the future.

SECURING THE ADVANCES WE HAVE WON

What people want is very simple. They want a group of Nigerian women, good, and empowered.

“(MWG) is the organization most able to advance the natural rights and needs of women for our entire society, and to bring forth the feminine in us all”. (Founder).

The MWG carries forward interest in the value of research, coalitions, and the convening of women. That we increasingly include boys and men in our work is terrific.” because I think women hold an important role in the fabric of society, being centered in our families and our communities.
Women are in a position to make significant change, even if many of them don’t realize it.

The (MWG) understands this potential, and because they have a national voice, the intellectual capacity, and the energy, they can afford to take risks and look into the issues in women’s lives quite deeply to bring them to the fore. This results in cutting-edge work that has a huge impact, not only nationally, but also internationally.”
Today’s public world does not reflect the future we desire for our children and our grandchildren.
Women are not yet equal partners with men in public and spheres of government.

Women will change public life and institutions as they bring a fuller range of human experience and needs into consideration. In this way, women’s influence will be felt on the simplest matters and on the most urgent issues for human security. New women leaders will depend on an active, women-led civic culture that supports them and holds them accountable. They will also depend on men who support this vision in both their public and private lives.
The (MWG) has a mandate to move women rapidly into full participation in the public world, increasing their influence on the world around them.
Building on 12years of achievement, the power of The MWG, and the strength of a N30 million endowments, we will meet this mandate. Together, we will eliminate the barriers remaining to women’s leadership in public life. We will focus our strategy and the endowment’s resources in three key areas.

CREATING THE FUTURE WE DESIRE
Study after study has shown that there is no effective development strategy in which women do not play a central role. When women are fully involved, the benefits can be seen immediately: families are healthier; they are better fed; their income, savings, and reinvestment go up. And what is true of families is true of communities and, eventually, of whole countries.

MWG- We will explore and work to change gender roles that place women as the primary keepers of private values in the home and leave the public world to men. We desire a future in which men and women lead alongside each other in workplaces, government, communities, and families.

We will reshape public policy, bringing women’s perspectives and solutions to every issue from globalization to national security, and from family policy to ending all forms of violence.
We will position the (MWG) for enduring impact in a global context by linking women’s voices at the local, state, tribal, and national levels.
We will build the capacity of key organizations and leaders seeking to make ours a truly effective democracy. (MWG) grantees will achieve results. Our vision must lead society into the future, and their voices resound at every decision-making table.

The (MWG) has created a better world for women and girls. We have helped to nurture strong, self-confident girls and provided economic stability and self-sufficiency for their mothers, and for all women, building a strong foundation for our families and our society. Nothing is more important. I believe in the (MWG) and the critical work Olori and Serendipity do, and I am proud to be a supporter. Mrs. O.Adeyemi

“The collaboration that happens at the MWG is between women activists, women from our communities, young women, and women of means and girls that mean change.
The (MWG) are women and men whose values, vision, and wealth compel action.
Working together, The (MWG) will establish the largest endowment controlled by a table of active personality in Nigeria.

The (MWG) will make philanthropic history. The (MWG) will move giving to women’s organizations from the sidelines to the headlines.

We call on you to tell the world that the full participation of women and girls is the key to a secure future. Your transformational gift will enable the MWG take a quantum leap forward that will result in lasting change.

The inaugural members of The (MWG) are as follows:
