WINN emphasizes training and re-orientation, as the special means & approach for individual changes in attitude, positively transforming lives even to the world at large. WINN celebrates Nigeria through the years that roll by, and promotes Nigeria’s future with focus ‘the change starts with us, the change starts now’.

This organization was birthed out of 12 month prayer assignment tagged “Nation’s Call to Prayer” which took place from March 2010 to March 2011 which tells us that WINN has been in existence for 4years and has done marvelously amazing things that changed the lives of women and youth, and has accomplish a lot, even more than expected/it proposed to do for the communities since inception September 21 2010 just barely 5 years… so many lives touched, so many communities transformed that cannot be listed ( refer to achievements at the end of this intro). In its few years of existence, WINN has spent so much on its programmes all from one purse. We have over 5000 members most especially grassroot women and youth across the country and well represented in over 20 states in Nigeria. ..
We also have WINN in Diaspora, we have WINW. UK, Ghana, Serria leon, Liberia, Chad Cameroun and South Africa.
All around the world women and children are the victims of wars, insurgency, earthquakes, abuse e.t.c. they are left so helpless, we have to take up the challenge as a church, as an organization, as an individual & make a change in the lives of these women/girls. WINN stands by this adage if you empower a woman/girl you empower the whole nation.
