Asked about her non-governmental organizations involved in women’s empowerment, Isabella replied, “By the grace of God, I run two NGOs. One of them is called Ministry of Wifehood, and it focuses on mentoring wives on what is expected of them in their marriages based on what is written in the Holy Bible. It is also for older women, because we advise them to behave respectfully; not slanderers, nor addicted to much wine, as the Bible encourages. We also urge young women to love their husbands and children. We urge them to be discreet, chaste, housekeepers and obedient to their husbands.
“The other NGO is called Women of African Origin in Music Ministry, and it aims to encourage, equip and empower female music ministers to fulfill their calling in life.”
