WELCOME TO WIMA

Welcome to our WIMA Platform. WIMA stands for straight in Swahili. WIMA symbolises a straight forward life for women. WIMA represents women who stand tall, women who have earned their power and leadership status with no shortcuts. WIMA represents women with vision. We want to inspire and show the girl child to stand tall and work hard as there are no short cuts to achieving success.
