For an On Air Personality (OAP) and multi award winning broadcaster, Divine James also known as Tushbee, a multi award winning broadcaster and her partner Temitope Bilewu, a widow and business woman, supporting and empowering widows in Nigeria and Africa and training and mentoring them to become financially independent is a priority.
Following this year’s International Widows Day celebration, Tushbee and Temmy decided to mentor and empower some widows into Network marketing, hence, it is understood by both parties that, if the wealthiest people on earth are Networkers, why can’t these widows be one.
For this reason, on the 23rd of June 2020, the duo help widows to gain financial freedom instead of pity.
Tushbee who is single but seriously involved with her partner, believes she doesn’t have to be a widow or own an NGO before she can support and empower widows.
Bilewu on the other hand believes that widows should be supported in a different way other than being given palliatives every now and then, as the palliatives wouldn’t take them very far.
Going by the UN Theme of this year’s awareness of Invisible woman , invisible problem, Tushbee and Temmy are of the opinion that woman should be visible and without problems if are properly empowered financially and on this note, they are calling on individuals who will love to support their Pet project Titled: ONE MILLION NETWORK AFRICA.
“The project started long ago, and we believe we don’t need to have an NGO or being a widow before help could come in. The project started in December 2019 with a 3 days seminar, where widows were trained on different skills that will help them becomes financially free and they are ready to cover the 36 states of the Federation and beyond.”
