Changing the current narrative of the Igbo nation leveraging on the capacity of Igbo women globally.

OUR MESSAGE

The position of Ndigbo in Nigeria has over the years become precarious with increasing hostility directed against innocent citizens sometimes leading to wanton loss of lives and destruction of property. IWMW aim to discover, harness and channel the formidable strength of Igbo women in addressing the present ugly situation in Alaigbo where our people face existential threats through programs and projects of poverty alleviaton, women empowerment, child's rights and protection awareness, and community development.
In the diaspora, Igbo women face different challenges including domestic abuse, racism, discrimination, economic disempowerment, work-related stress, mental ill-health (anxiety and depression), poverty etc. A number of women have lost their lives from overworking in response to family pressures home and abroad.

The Igbo Women Movement Worldwide was founded by Lady Chinwe D. Okoroigwe to galvanise Igbo women irrespective of location, profession and status to advocate for the right to life and preserve its culture as well as empower Ndigbo to aspire and thrive to their full potentials in Alaigbo and anywhere in the world in order to improve the standard of living for themselves, their children, and future generations.

MESSAGE FROM OUR CONVENER

The Igbos have suffered and continue to suffer marginalisation, economic oppression, infrastructural underdevelopment, judicial bias, and worst of it all, extrajudicial killings and intimidation...

OUR VISION

Igbo women and their families to be free and prosperous, attaining their full potential and fulfil their destiny, in Alaigbo, Nigeria and in the United Kingdom
