There is every reason for one to believe that a legacy is meant for you by your forbears. This is what is playing out for Aisha, the famed daughter of the former military president, Ibrahim Babangida and late Maryam. She, Aisha, actually believes that rising comes from lifting others, helping others grow, and in rare cases too, creating a platform that empowers others, platforms that open doors of opportunities for the less privileged like a bright day when the drapes of daylight embrace it. Aisha Babangida, driven by the legacy of her mother, Maryam Babangida, recently launched The Better Life Programme for The African Rural Woman Project 5/5/5. The project was greeted with a warm ululation by many at an event a few days ago. Women’s empowerment is an important factor in economic growth. As a tool that allows women to burn brighter, this initiative will contribute to the development of society. Aisha is the Chairperson to the Board of Trustees on the project. The humanitarian leader is aware of the tremendous importance of a project that provides communities with access to adult literacy programmes, skills acquisition and financial literacy in Nigeria. Aisha, like her late mom, knows that rural women are treated like abandoned wares. The Better Life Programme for African Rural Women is a vehicle that drives African rural women towards a rewarding uplifting journey by generating opportunities in agriculture through the establishment of cottage industries to integrate rural women into a national development plan. Aisha now places his gaze on the future with the hope that this project will flourish with days, raising the living standards of the rural women and their families.
