Women Inspiration Development Center


About WIDC

The  Women  Inspiration Development Center was formed in 2008  by Busayo Obisakin along with a group of women friends and colleagues that initially called themselves vigilantes against Violence, who set out to curb the violence against women and girls through a variety of services and activities they offered throughout the local community. After a short while, it became clear that the name needed to change to reflect the widening scope of the work done by the group to help protect and improve the lives of women in the community.

   The group officially became registered as an organization, Women Inspiration Development Center, in 2010.
