The ongoing problem in Nigeira has left many families without food and we have not gotten enough fund to help 250 women of Imeko to attain economic independence. Until now, an average woman of this own rely on the husband for virtually all responsibilities of home up-keeping. The idea of a single unpredictable income translates into increased poverty and lack Some areas remain exposed to exreme levels of acure food insecurity and also means the woman suffering nil or low esteem. It is therefore, our opinion that these women be supported with ideas of a second income to complement that of the husband earning below $5 a week.
Presently, the women of Imeko have no voice, for a fact that they are not contributing to home upkeep. This has reduced the women to a life of servitude and abuse from their husbands. In an attempt to make ends meet, some women have resorted to extra marital affairs. This illicit affairs are punishable by ostracizing in some parts of the community. There is attending problems of poverty of malnutrition that encourages women going into prostitution. There is equally an increase in divorce rates. Some men are even killing their women for money ritual as a result of hunger.
We thanks everyone that have been donationg towards this project and $10 donation a month could empower some women, they will also be able to grow enough food and secure a stable living.

Our Villages has been abandoned by various authorities and are only considered relevant during election. Due to no access to drinkable water in villages there are incresed in rural to urban migration that promises no offer of employment , which now increase crime. AnneGift Foundation with the help of Global Giving has started creating job and reducing treat of infections in our villages. Having drinkable water in some villages has now encoraged our youths and able bodied villagers to stay in villages and practise agricultural production, thereby we are now reducing hunger gradually in our society.
AnneGift Foundation youths are now working with community leaders, women and farmers to create more jobs in rural areas.
