Evolving Women In Progress (EWIP) under the leadership of National President, Hajia Fatima and Matron, Folashade Tinubu, is a non-governmental organization focused on mitigating violence against women during elections and encouraging women’s participation in politics. However, it also serves as a social gathering catering to the needs of women across all ages, religions, and tribes. Since its inception about a year ago, EWIP has conducted medical outreaches for women and paid school fees for young girls, among other philanthropic gestures.

EWIP operates independently and is not affiliated with the government. While it has assisted some politicians in winning elections, its primary focus is on empowering women and encouraging their involvement in governance.

The organization’s impact areas include advocacy for women’s participation in governance, women empowerment, advocacy for women’s rights and against all forms of discrimination, career development opportunities for women, and humanitarian services.
