Nigeria’s First Female Car Mechanic Is Giving Vulnerable Women Many Reasons To Dream Again

Meet Sandra Aguebor, Nigeria's first female mechanic and the founder of the Lady Mechanic Initiative, an organization that teaches women especially the vulnerable in our society how to fix cars and become financially independent.

About 1000 women have graduated from the Lady Mechanic Initiative's three and a half year course and many have gone on to start their own garages. Aguebor who has broken barriers to succeed in a male dominated profession is building hope again in the lives of many women and giving others many reasons to dream again.

In her words to women who are former sex workers, school dropouts and single mothers, women who say they have no hope in their lives anymore, she says to them, "You have got a lot of hope, I am going to help you build that hope."
