“LADOL is proud to support ‘The WE Empower UN SDG Challenge’ as one of its lead partners.   Continuing its commitment to the young entrepreneurs and the UN Sustainability Goals, LADOL is supporting this new and important initiative which awards female entrepreneurs who are creating sustainable development and businesses in their communities,” she said.

“Women are not simply beneficiaries of SDG Goal 5. They are also leading the achievement of all SDGs.  If the world commits to gender equality, equal engagement in the workforce adds $28 trillion US dollars to annual global GDP in 2025.

“Competitions like WE Empower raise awareness of the great work female leaders are doing to support the Sustainable Development Goals and will encourage more of us to come forward and follow in their footsteps. – Congratulations to all the women who competed, to the five awardees and Habiba Ali.

“We look forward to seeing how LADOL can provide more support for her and other female entrepreneurs.”
