The Women Awards Championship International (WAC), Nigeria Aquatics Federation in collaboration with the African First Ladies Peace Mission, have made necessary arrangements to organize the maiden International Women Swimming Championship and Rural Empowerment in honour of Nigeria’s First Lady, Hajia Aisha Buhari and governors’ wives.

The event is expected to hold at the Conference Hall of African First Lady’s Peace Mission, Central Business District, Abuja, Nigeria on Thursday 26th November, 2020.
Some of these charitable efforts include; empowerment of farmers and women in Kogi, to cushion the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on them through the distribution of numerous Hair Dryer Machines to some less privileged women and Water Pumping Machines to farmers for irrigation in order boost their farming activities during the dry season.

The groups paid a tribute  to Dr. Aisha Buhari for being the voice of the voiceless, especially the special attention she paid to the plight of the citizens during the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic through various support programmes and initiatives for less-privileged women that cut across the federation.

In view of the success recorded by the First Lady’s humanitarian activities, the 2020 Swimming Championship which is aimed at building swimming and sporting capacity for girl child, is being organized in her honour and is geared towards empowering women and less privileged in the 774 Local Government of Nigeria.

“The event would be used to select the most analytical and appropriate girl swimmers to be further trained for the upcoming International Swimming Championship. It is strategically planned to also provide special training and empowerment materials for all participating athletes, vulnerable and less-privileged girls and women in our rural communities”, the groups said.

Part of the activities lined up is the official presentation/unveiling of the trophy to the First Lady of Nigeria, Dr. Mrs. Aisha Buhari ahead of the commencement of the International Women Swimming Championship.
