International social development advocate and entrepreneurship development mentor, Jenovive Chinyere, has called for concerted efforts by well-meaning ECOWAS citizens in the diaspora to support the institution of capacity-building and empowerment Initiatives in their home countries.
Jenovive, whose work has been impressive with impact in countries across West Africa, and the diaspora, however, hopes her home country would be more welcoming and with an enabling environment for diaspora-citizens’ participation.
“There are several Nigerian Women impacting the world with footprints in different endeavors. You find Nigerian Women holding high positions in other countries and you wonder and sometimes ask: “Why are our own people not in Nigeria doing that same job or impacting women to be able to do the same?”
“Apparently, they too are afraid of lack of resources and support to be able to do what they want to do. I’m hoping women can get support from other Nigerians and others, who like me, have resources, passion, insight and network to build far-reaching partnerships and help make an impact in Nigeria,” Jenovive said.

Jenovive, who also spoke during a panel discussion of the Wintrade Global event at the House of Lords, United Kingdom, said she often finds that there are a lot of women across West Africa who have the capacity to do the work or to achieve greatness but lack the confidence.
Recently, she initiated a project named ‘Level Up’ which is focused on helping young women and girls understand entrepreneurship and opportunities available in various fields of endeavor. It also aims to encourage young women and girls to pursue entrepreneurship as a viable path for empowerment and foster some sense of empowerment and confidence in young women.
The Level Up project is currently projected to run in 5 countries in the ECOWAS region which includes: Liberia, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Senegal and Nigeria.
The five countries are the main areas of focus with plans to also include Guinea Conakry and some other countries in due time.
