Before we begin our post, we would like to say that at this unbelievably difficult time for the country of Ukraine, we stand shoulder to shoulder with all women and girls caught up in this frightening conflict as well as all men too. And everyone around the globe who is living in a war zone.

Secret Projects is female led and proud!
On this International Women's Day (IWD), we thought we would take the opportunity to highlight one of the things we are so proud of at Secret Projects – that we are female led. Not only that, we are a group of women who are at a variety stages of our lives but all still working and impassioned by what we do.
Banke Ajayi - Co-founder and Global Director of Finance and Operations
Retired from her career as a leader and senior Finance Manager for large corporate organisations, as well as her CEO role for a charity, Banke wasn't ready to put her feet up! We are so privileged to have a women with her financial background to lead this aspect of Secret Projects.
Banke's family and her faith are at the centre of all she does and she is a devoted, hands on grandmother to 5 grandchildren, who she regularly looks after for her daughters. Although, like all grandparents the joy is underpinned by the fact that the kids can be handed back at the end of the day!
Sumathi - Director and General Manager of Social Power India
Heading up the team and operation in India, Sumathi has a long and successful career in leading teams as a senior manager and we are so grateful that she decided to join us and add Secret Projects to her CV.
Sumathi is a single mother to 4 children and is also a grandmother. With working full time, looking out for her kids and helping with her grandchildren, her hands are very full. However, she reliably tells us, she wouldn't have it any other way.
Fritha Global Co-founder,CEO and Head of Sales
Secret Projects was Fritha's dream that she bought to life in 2014. Since then, she has devoted so much energy and vision to the business and without wishing to put labels on people, she could be described as a career women, with a strong desire to help others and empower women economically.
Fritha met her partner, Olaf 3 years ago and since then has gone on to have a sweet little girl called Lagertha, who is just approaching her first birthday, so Fritha is now a working mum. A big change in your 40's but she is loving it.
Lissy - Quality Controller
Lissy is an expert quality controller and trainer with years of experience under her belt. Her calm and reassuring manner means that the women who she helps train to make Secret Products (the name we give to our Ranges of clothing and homeware), receive the best possible instruction.
Lissy is a wife, mother and grandmother and also has elderly parents that she cares for. Like the rest of the team, she has lots to juggle and we are glad to be able to juggle alongside her.
Margaret- Director of Communications
Again, without wishing to put labels on people, Margaret's stage of life is probably best described as being an 'empty nester' with her 22 year old son no longer around very much, meaning she is no longer needed in the same way she was and as a result has more time!
Margaret worked part-time for many years, mainly in the charity sector but since having more time available has begun to work full time, which she is adjusting to. It's a bit of a shock, however she is thoroughly enjoying this new phase of life.
