220 MORE FAMILIES KICK OUT HUNGER THROUGH HELP FROM WIDC

As a result of the COVID 19 Relief Fund received from GlobalGiving, Women Inspiration Development Center has helped 220 more families to kick out hunger and domestic violence. More women were trained on how to establish a small business on hand made nose mask, liquid soap and sales of locally made sanitizers and tailoring. Some women also received reliefs from WIDC to start again their small businesses that have crumbled as a result of the COVID 19 pandemic.

Nigeria has been experiencing a great surge in domestic and sexual violence cases during COVID 19 pandemic and hunger has been killing more people than COVID 19 virus. People, especially women living in the slums could no longer feed themselves again due to the fact that the petty trading and daily paid jobs they usually depend upon collapsed during the COVID 19 lockdown. As a result of the hardship and frustration, domestic violence among this set of people increased tremendously beyond the numbers that used to happen before. We were having about 150% increase in the number of cases of domestic violence.

When the COVID 19 relief from GlobalGiving came, it was a great relief for our organization that has been struggle seriously to cope with the number of reporting cases of domestic and sexual violence because no grant is coming to the organization lately. We immediately started trainings and providing reliefs for women to start a small business so that they can continue feeding their families. Their dependence on their husband for everything the families needs reduced and so hunger and fights in the families also reduced drastically

We are also able through the Relief Fund to organize one on one counselling sessions, Agency-based workshops for slum and village women to sensitize them on the need to create a better life for themselves.
