The Lily Williams foundation says it is set to train 20 girls in Ogoja on the art of make up as well as empower them with start up kits at the end of the capacity building.

The founder, Lily Okem Williams who is based in the United States of America disclosed this in chat with CrossRiverWatch where she says “we will interview every candidate until we find passionate women and because we are blunt in our dealings, we will not waste our time training the wrong person so we will work hard to select the right people to work with them.”

The training according to Lily is in partnership with Calabar based La’ Estelle beauty company which specializes in professional make up and will see the girls been trained free of charge on an art which should have cost between 100 and 150 thousand Naira.

Furthermore, she said the reason for the partnership with La’ Estelle was due to the passion she exhibited towards the project, explaining that, “We are here to assist women in any way possible, so we are just not going to focus on make up. We look for what people need and what will benefit them. And we talk to them and hear their opinions as well then we can come together as a team to form a project.”

On why make up was preferred to other arts, she said “Every single woman is crazy about make up and it generates a good income. A night out make up service costs roughly 7000 Naira, just imagine one of these ladies having 7 to 10 customers in one week”, adding that “when you train a girl, you train a nation.”

She also lampooned those who have contributed in “instilling the lazy attitude in girls as is seen nowadays which has led the to all sorts of immoral and unhealthy activities of sorts” adding that “the next project after the make up is a sewing training center as our vision is to build a vocational training center for women where they will develop skills to empower them and be able to contribute to their families and our society.”
