This project will help the insurgent women who reside in the Internally Displaced Persons Camp in Abuja, Nigeria by building their capacities to ensure best production best practices. The women will also be grouped into clusters will start businesses that are prevalent among them to improve their livelihood and nation's economy.
There are over 600 insurgent women living in Internally Displaced Camps in Abuja. These women who consider themselves as "vulnerable" are on the verge of losing grip of their predominant skill/ their primary source of income before the insurgency happened and taking to social vices within the community. Although the Nigerian government is making efforts in ensuring the social welfare of these women but this is otherwise in the economic sense. This project will help 100 women as a pilot program
These women would be taught on the best production practices on their predominant skill/line of business, counseled in the line of business and be provided with grant facilities to kick-start their business, not as an individual but as a group which will be duly registered under the Corporate laws of Nigeria. Fortempowerment Foundation will also provide post training support to these women to evaluate and monitor the progress of the new business startup
This project will educate 100 women who in turn will educate others within the community. also products produced from the clusters will be seeking international recognition with other brands via the exportation of these products to countries with a high demand of these goods. this project in the long run will help to better the livelihood of these women, their families and the country at large.
