A JOURNEY FROM

PASSION TO PURPOSE

By W.i.s.e.r (Women in Social & Economic

Reformation)

Founded in 2016, the voluntary association initially began to empower women in

the local community and evolved into a plethora of sharing, networking,

collaborating, and serving. The Wiser platform promotes the exchange of skills &

knowledge, social responsibility projects and events geared towards social and

economic growth.

Consisting of a dedicated team of volunteers, it is constantly growing to

accommodate the needs of the socio-economic issues of the country. Past

projects include skills development workshops for SME, emotional wellbeing

webinars, social awareness campaigns, several charity runs (hampers, business

rescue and bursaries), international assistance viz. crowdfunding for the purchase

of ambulance, disaster relief and aid etc. and educational tours for personal

development of children and adults.

Current projects include the construction of a borehole in an underprivileged

area, a successful crowdfund towards building of a local masjid. As a fulltime

sponsor towards the printing of African language Quraans and an opening of a

community Dawah Centre, fundraising has to be consistent and ongoing. Wiser is

solely reliant on donations, the support of the public and sponsorships of various

organizations to be able to drive causes and execute goals.

To contribute to the group or for enquiries on the upcoming event, kindly
