We will enable you to contact the recipient directly or act as a facilitator. All contributions, donations in kind and cash will be published on our website as well as on our journals, annual statement of account, expenditure details and other supporting documentations which will also be forwarded to the donors annually.
The following areas require support:
A School to skill training. This requires an annual donation of $200 per child to undertake skill training on computers, mechanical repairs, fashion, food processing and packaging, wielding, building, furniture making or any areas of her choice of the choice of the donor. The training is designed for 3 years for in-school poor children at primary four to senior secondary three during their long vacation or holidays. The proceeds from the training will enable the child to save money for his or higher education. The training will take place within the community or the nearest neighborhood. It is a unique approach that enables school pupils to acquire both quality education and special technical skills at the same time. This is aimed at promoting skills acquisition by the youths and elimination of poverty and unemployment among the youths as well as unemployment induced insecurity and risky behaviours.
All dry season farming for women Income empowerment: This is a program designed for poor women and widows who require additional support to train their children particularly girl’s child to school. In most patriarchal communities in Nigeria, the training of the girl child is not taken seriously and where they are allowed to school they are mostly left to the mothers. More than 10,000 families are therefore led by poor women who will use the opportunity of dry season farming of vegetables to complement what they get from rainy season farming. The fund required will vary according to the type of crop to be produced. An average of $1000 is required to support a women annually for two years to become sustainable as all season farmer. Dry season yields are more income generating than rainy season yields.
Provision of water and sanitation in a community market: Over 200 medium size markets don’t have water supply and clean environment for sustainable participation in economic transaction by poor rural dwellers. In many cases, trading in a very unclean market is the major source of diseases and health challenges which eventually incapacitates the individual from becoming productive. Providing safe and clean market environment will encourage rural dwellers to participate more and earn more income. Provision of water and sanitation facilities in each market that serves over 4000 persons, will cost $4000.
Health Care Support: Most communities don’t have functional health centers. They require basic diagnostics equipment’s like blood pressure checks, sugar check among others to prevent health challenges and preventable death due to lack of diagnostics. Each community will require $2000 for centralized equipment for free checks. This will save a lot of lives of poor rural dwellers.
