Optimum Women & Youth Empowerment Foundation (OWYEF) is a non-governmental, non-religious, non-political and non-profit making organization duly registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission with head office in Abuja and Chapters in the six geo-political zones of Nigeria. The Foundation is geared towards the education, advocacy and sensitization of the vulnerable and the less privileged on issues of crime and criminality. violence against women (physical and verbal), trafficking in persons and gender sensitization.
It has been observed that most of the court cases involving vulnerable women and youths are as a result of crime committed out of ignorance or the need for survival. In law, ignorance is not an excuse so also is poverty not a reason for anyone to commit crime.
The rate of crime among the vulnerable women and youths has become alarming and poses a challenge to all. In a bid to curb this ugly trend, OWYEF decided to take pro-active steps to address this problem amongst others with the aim of promoting peaceful co-existence, public security, political stability and economic development.
OWYEF provides support for the less privilege women, youths and children through skills acquisition, entrepreneurship training and empowerment programs, educational grants and scholarship as well as micro-credit scheme.
OWYEF provides free legal aid/ADR services for women and youths and free medical screening and diagnosis amongst others.
