Awesome Treasures Foundation (ATF) is a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) that identifies, develops and deploys change agents to positively affect Nigeria in line with the Millennium Developmental Goals (MDGs) declared by the United Nations.

On October 16, 2011 at the Muson Centre in Lagos, women of Style and substance gathered together in an event tagged “Woman Of Power – A Reviving Evening With Entrepreneurial Women Of Faith“. It was also to celebrate with Jumoke Adenowo – Founder of ATF, on the launch of her new book titled ‘Prophetic Prayer Manual Volume II’, this book addresses the issues women face in marriage and the struggles of motherhood.

Highlights of this evening included ministering by Jumoke Adenowo, unveiling of the book – Prophetic Prayer Manual Volume II by supporters of the NGO including Stephanie Okereke, Lanre DaSilva-Ajayi and Tara Durotoye, a book signing exercise and the cutting of Architect Adenowo’s surprise birthday cake as the day of celebration was also her birthday.

The event was also to raise awareness about ATF’s causes as well to raise funds to finance them. This year, the NGO’s focus includes fully equipping and staffing the women’s clinic at the ATF resource centre in Ilupeju, Lagos, creating awareness on legislations concerning the welfare of women in Lagos State and educating women on the processes involved in starting sustainable businesses.

Jumoke Adenowo, the CEO of AD Consulting – an Architecture and Interior Design firm started ATF in 1991 out of her passion to positively impact on the lives of women and transform the youth in the Nigerian society.
ATF projects are centered on providing entrepreneurship and skills acquisition for women and youths, basic primary education for children, women empowerment and make available efficient primary health care facilities for people who are unable to afford them.

    nice pics but what is ” Architect (Mrs)Adenowo”, is Architect a title?

      That was what I was going to comment on as well. It any profession can come up and get a title in Nigeria. It’s no longer exclusive to the likes of Doctors etc. Even Engineers refer to themselves as Engr (Mr/Mrs) Whoever.

      We’re too obsessed with Status’ and Titles. Pls give it a rest.

    typical Naija attitude.. We are not satisfied with a mere Mr & Mrs.. we must introduce as Dr, Engr, Architect etc., etc., we like labels.. it potrays sophistication, class and all things perceived by their subjective minds…imagine if all other walks of life introduced themselves with their titles first…

  31. Olivia

    November 11, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    You can always tell the inner states of insecurity and show off mentality among us: what’s the deal with all the titles in Naija???? Can’t people divorce the jobs they do/ positions they hold/ education they acquires from who they really are???? You are not your title, you are YOU!!!! What’s with the DR. (ENGR. ARCHITECT. BARRISTER.PHOTOGRAHER. COOK.AMEBO) MRS….XXXXX. I tire for my people. Please keep it simple. Infact, I’m leading my own personal crusade to talk about this ‘title’ craze in our society…haba! Presido na ‘Dr’ yet see the state of affairs of a nation. Action,Competence and Character should be our focus not empty titles..arrrrghhh!!!

  32. igotalk

    November 11, 2011 at 5:39 pm

    Bella get handful here o. it appears to be a good event. but with the titles, laughing my ribs off!

  33. cinderella

    November 12, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    Why do the pictures look so dark? I must say Stephanie hasn’t been getting on the good side of photographers lately… She looks very dark and not as pretty as she is in real life.
    Second, maybe someone should have directed the pose cos many people posed like they were sad to be there or forced to take those pictures! Shuo!!! Is it by force?!?
    and then with the titles, it goes to show how shallow our people are! #titlecravingnigerians! smh

    It is amazing how majority of the posts so far, have focused on a “flaw” that is totally unrelated to the actual event!!! Jumoe Adenowo did not write the article she founded the NGO- Awesome Treasures Foundation and wrote a book! Yet has that dominated the discussion? No. Nit picking at the “negatives” is of no use and constantly trying to find fault or something to complain about is of no benefit to anyone. True, some individuals have a hang up about what or how long their title is, but as surely we can look beyond that and acknowledge the great work being done here. There were strong role models at this event – Tara Durotoye, Lanre Da Silva Ajayi to name a few that have not come up at all. Let us not miss what is REALLY important here- raising change agents

    Jumoke,you are trully a change agent,each time i see or read about you,or listen to you talk,i feel challenged and inspired.i can only say keep up the wonderful work and know it that you are my mentor.May God continue to strenghten you.
