Here’s how Funke Adeniji uses sports to help women overcome some of life’s challenges

You can use any skill, no matter how abstract it is, to empower and help others. Funke Adeniji is proof of this. The Founder of Women Elite Sports Empowerment Initiative (WESIE), Funke was able to overcome a series of athletic and personal challenges by playing basketball from college level to division 1 of the UK’s premiere league for women.

From her journey, Funke discovered that many women have limited options and opportunities to achieve their full potential as players. This realization led her to start WEISE to create opportunities for female athletes to achieve their full potential on and off the court.

Founded with the motto, ‘To Inspire, Empower, and Enable’ to encourage communities to live healthy and productive lives, WIESE empowers women by creating local opportunities for them to excel and reap the full benefits of sports within their own communities.
