Amakon Women Empowerment Inc.

About The Founder

Hello, I am Dr. Jane Ekong, the founder and Executive Director/President of Amakon Women Empowerment Inc. (AWE).  I am excited and thrilled every time I think of this organization and its impact on the lives of the disadvantaged and underprivileged females of our society.  

Imagine the impact that access to a computer can have on High School girls with no computer at home for their school work. Envision how women and girls in Shelters could feel if they are able to upgrade their computer skills and thereby increase their probability of securing employment on departure from the Shelter. Think of New Canadians who need improved computer skills to become even more productive members of their communities. These are the people for whom AWE exists. I am very proud and delighted to be part of AWE. I cherish its underlying message: “Someone cares about you. Someone is here for you. Someone wants you to succeed.  Someone wants you to know that you count."  Can you join us and be another SOMEONE?
