WomenForWomen FundDONATE TO PLEDGE YOUR SUPPORT
Crowdfunding financial capital from Nigerian Women home and abroad, to support women running for elective office ahead of the 2023 Nigerian general elections The WomenForWomen Fund matters, it matters because Nigeria deserves a new generation of competent leaders, including women with progressive agendas that will prioritize the well-being of all citizens.
Women constitute half of the population in Nigeria yet grossly underrepresented across key appointive and elective offices. The implication of this has presented dire challenges including socio-economic retrogression triggered by the absence of human centred approach to decision making.
The fundamental question now remains; do we wait for the world to be equal before we start feeling seen, heard, and respected?
We say NO!
The WomenForWomen Fund, a sub-fund under ElectHER’s Agender35 campaign is a crowdfunding initiative led by a collective of three leading women’s organizations – ElectHER, African Women on Board, and AGS Tribe, with a goal to raise $1 million from Nigerian women home and abroad, for fellow women running for elective office ahead of the 2023 Nigerian election.

For increased accountability and public trust, weekly updates on funds raised, will be shared publicly on the WomenForWomen webpage and across ElectHER Social pages and/or sister partner pages.
Funds raised will contribute to ElectHER’s Agender35 $10 million fund which will be used to widely empower 1000 women to DecideToRun, and directly fund 35 women to run for key positions across parliament and executive offices in the 2023 general elections. Funds will go towards purchasing Expression of Interest and nomination forms, campaign administration and logistics, communications and personal branding and other crucial campaign expenses.
With financial capital raised, competent women will have better negotiating power at the party level, and not be denied the opportunity of running competitive campaigns due to the lack of financial capital and a supportive network.
ElectHER is a non-partisan progressive women's political advancement organization bridging inequality gaps in African democracy, by advocating for and enabling women's leadership across appointive and elective office. Our mission is fulfilled through behavioural change communications; skills development, human capital mobilization and campaign financing, with an end-goal to enable capable women competitively Decide, Run and Win elections. We are on a mission to empower 1000 women to run for office and directly back '35' women by 2023.
