Sonorous singer, Waje, has unveiled plans to launch a worldwide campaign for gender equality and opportunity.

Tagged #AfricanWoman, the singer aims to empower and enable African women and girls to have a qualitative education through her foundation, Waje Safehouse.

Through Waje Safehouse, the singer will be touring the continent and kicking off a scholarship fund for 5 bright young women who are unable to fund their tertiary education. The cities for this campaign include Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda, Tanzania and Liberia.

Waje, a United Nations/ONE and Purple ambassador took to her various social media accounts to make the announcement.

She wrote:

The most important and often misunderstood concept in the narratives for gender equality is OPPORTUNITY.

One of our key goals for this project is to create awareness about the need to guarantee the same opportunities for education and life choices for the African girl or woman. To make gender equality a reality in Africa, we must educate and empower women.

I believe that the only way to do this is by being an example and a voice for our women who do not have the opportunity to speak for themselves. We must enlighten them. We must let them know that they can be the driving force of African growth.
