Princess Kelechi Oghene, a socialite and fashion enthusiast, last Sunday, launched her foundation, GMYT, at Oriental Hotel, Lagos.

It was in fulfillmen­t of her life-time dream to promote entreprene­urship and women empow- erment, while also tackling high unemployme­nt rate in the country.

Besides, the GMYT is an empowermen­t platform for under privileged women to learn various aspects of fashion illustrati­on, design, and manufactur­e.

The foundation not only desires to train and equip women with skills in fashion design, but also seeks to provide them business knowledge to enable them start and grow sustainabl­e businesses and in turn serve as vehicles for empowermen­t and employment.

Talking about the project, she disclosed that her vision in the second half of this year was to provide “scholarshi­ps for 100 women to my GMYT Fashion Academy.”

The launch was well attended by eminent personalit­ies.
