From Adversity to Entrepreneurship – Story of Hannadex Design World


Empowering Communities Stitch by Stitch

In the heart of Nigeria's rural landscapes, where opportunities can feel scarce and dreams are often deferred, one woman is redefining empowerment through the art of crocheting. Meet Hannah Modupe Okeya, the visionary behind Hannadex Design World, whose journey from adversity to entrepreneurship is as vib4rant as the colorful creations she brings to life.

Hannah's story is one of resilience and determination, sparked by a twist of fate—an accident that left her dependent on others for her livelihood. But rather than succumb to despair, she embarked on a journey of self-discovery, seeking a way to regain her independence and make a meaningful contribution to society.

During this introspective period, Hannah stumbled upon the transformative power of crocheting. What began as a therapeutic pastime quickly evolved into a passion and, eventually, a business venture. With skillful hands and boundless creativity, she began crafting fashion wearables and bags that captivated those around her.

Yet, for Hannah, crocheting was about more than just creating beautiful pieces; it was a means of driving social change, especially for women and girls like herself who longed for opportunity and agency. Thus, Hannadex Design World was born—a social enterprise dedicated to empowering marginalized communities through crochet.

Armed with her background in accounting and an unwavering commitment to effect change, Hannah set out to share her craft far and wide. From the dusty streets of rural villages to the bustling markets of urban centers, she embarked on a mission to train and uplift women and girls through crochet. 

Through Hannadex Design World's training programs, Hannah has impacted the lives of over 100 individuals, imparting not only the technical skills of crocheting but also the confidence and resilience needed to forge their own paths. By establishing clusters of crocheters within each community, she has fostered a network of support and collaboration, enabling participants to transform their newfound skills into sustainable livelihoods.

In a world often fraught with challenges, Hannah's initiative, Hannadex Design World, shines as a beacon of hope, resilience, and community spirit. And leading the charge is Hannah Modupe Okeya, a visionary whose passion and determination continue to weave the fabric of a brighter, more inclusive future for all.
