This manuscript documents the history, structure and educational activities of FOMWAN, Minna – Niger State chapter. The Federation of Muslim Women’s Associations in Nigeria (FOMWAN) is an umbrella association to all Muslim women’s organizations in the country. FOMWAN's vision is for a world where women are empowered to be role models in making impacts in religious and secular matters. The association’s mission is a world where women are educated and equipped for an equitable and peaceful society. FOMWAN was established in the town of Minna in 1985, and is also where the founding member, Late Hajiya Aisha Lemu, lived. This particular state chapter (Niger) has developed comparatively better than other states, especially in terms of educational development. This is because, FOMWAN Minna has one of the largest comprehensive schools that are independently run by the association and approved by the state ministry of education. Their schools have received various awards of excellence, and are known for their state of art best practices, conducive learning environment, and well-trained staff.
