A portion of BOXOCHOPS profits funds the BOXOCHOPS Nwayi Bu Nwa Foundation and its mission to equip, encourage, and empower female small business owners and entrepreneurs in the rural parts of Nigeria, West Africa.

Coming from a household of female founders, we truly believe in the success of the girl child when equipped with the right foundation, access to opportunities, mentorship and sponsorship.

In line with the United Nations’ #Envision2030 Goal 5: Gender Equality and #Envision2030 Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, BOXOCHOPS will host an annual program to drive the following points:

  • Ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision making in political, economic and public life.
  • Undertake reforms to give women equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to ownership and control over land and other forms of property, financial services, inheritance and natural resources, in accordance with national laws.
  • Enhance the use of enabling technology, in particular information and communications technology, to promote the empowerment of women.
  • Achieve higher levels of economic productivity through diversification, technological upgrading and innovation, including through a focus on high-value added and labour-intensive sectors.
  • Promote development-oriented policies that support productive activities, decent job creation, entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation, and encourage the formalization and growth of micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises, including through access to financial services.
  • By 2020, substantially reduce the proportion of youth not in employment, education or training.

In 2020, 10 female founders will be selected to receive mentoring, business grants, resources and leadership development to enable the growth of their business, and create a sustainable financial future for themselves, their families, and the local community.
