The World Mission Foundation is an NGO accredited with
the United Nations Economic and Social Council since 2006
As part of our mission, we have been focusing on the challenges facing developing countries such as health, violence, discrimination, education, economics, and many other social needs, which are aligned with the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (UNMDGs), now known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Among our network members are 25 Community Based Organizations (CBOs) and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), including faith-based organizations.
Since 2006, the World Mission Foundation (WMF) and its network of NGOs and CBOs have been actively participating in the annual United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UN-CSW) and the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
Partners of WMF can be found in Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia, the Caribbean (Haiti and Jamaica), as well as our corporate headquarters in the United States.
A crucial function of the World Mission Foundation is empowering, advising, motivating, and assisting non-governmental organizations and not-for-profit organizations that are unaccredited at United Nations bodies to become accredited. NGOs and CBOs who partner with WMF can participate in UN-related events.
World Vision Foundation and its partners have run primary schools, built markets, renovated schools, supported faith-based organizations, helped widows, supported orphanages, conducted seminars and conferences about HIV/AIDS and infectious diseases, provided medical missions, and reached out to local rulers and politicians for their participation.
In conjunction with the UN CSW, the World Mission Foundation and its NOG and CBO partners honor great men and women who have been supportive of our crusade for the empowerment of women and girls in the rural areas of Africa and the Caribbean at the Permanent Mission of Nigeria to the United Nations.
Here at the World Mission Foundation, I am proud to announce our work alongside the UN ECOSOC as we strive toward one of our most important and shared global missions, namely, the fight for a more equitable and egalitarian world for our women and girls. I ensure that the women and young ladies around the world serve in their various positions of leadership with class, dignity, wisdom, and grace. I have been implementing leadership and examples for girls around the world sources of tremendous value to our society. And the dual roles that I manage to balance, leading and serving in professional capacities as well as helping to raise new generations of human beings should they choose to become mothers, demonstrate incredible inner strength that they possess.
It is imperative to note that support is valuable to our cause as well as time and attention as we embark in our quest for empowering women and girls in all areas. They are seeds that will take root and spread the message to every corner of the world, the message that women wherever they are from, can and must play a greater role in shaping the future of our societies and that we have the necessary tools to change this world for the better. All that remains is that we take action to ensure that a better world exists for our wives, daughters, sisters, mothers, aunts, grandmothers, friends and even strangers alike. I say “strangers alike” because it is important for me to highlight that a woman’s inherent importance and value in this world is not relative to her relationship to any particular man. They are whole and unique human beings, and as such, are worthy of respect regardless of personal affiliation or familial relation. So, to all of the women of the world, and especially those who rise to the occasion and call for leadership, thank you. Thank you for existing, thank you for serving, thank you for leading, and thank you above all for simply being the unique individuals you all are.
Note: The three central elements of Women in Leadership include:
1.) Women’s full and effective participation in decision-making in public life.
2.) The elimination of violence against women in order to achieve greater gender equality.
3.) The Empowerment of all women and girls.
When combined, all three elements offer a healthy, if not imperfect and much-needed set of remedies, as we look to tackle and alleviate the multitude of issues that women and girls around the world face in day to day life. And while they may not cover every available base, they go a long way toward highlighting some key problem areas and the workable solutions and suggestions that accompany them. Element number one I hold in particularly high regard, because it represents the proverbial “glass ceiling.”
