Challenge

Poor and irregular income is common among youth and women in rural communities of Ife East and Ife South Local Government Areas in Nigeria. The poor economic challenges are linked to poor quality of life of women and children from many of the vulnerable households. The children are malnourished, lack access to healthcare and hardly receive basic education. Improved income will consequently enhance the well-being of members of their households, reduce crime rates and promote rural economy.

Solution

The project will establishment community-relevant income generation activities (IGAs) such as computer appreciation skills, household fishery, household poultry, barbing, catering or snacks making, soap making, tyre repairs and vulcanizing, construction of mechanised palm oil and cassava processing mills. These will increase income of beneficiaries (youth and women) and consequently increase access of members of their households, especially children to good health, nutrition and education.

Long-Term Impact

The implementation of the project will ensure regular income for 300 women and youth within their communities. The empowerment of these beneficiaries will enhance their self-esteem, participation in local decision making processes and stimulate rural economy through enhanced agro-based market. 1,200 members of their households, especially children will also have improved access to basic necessities of life such as basic education, adequate nutrition, good healthcare, shelter and protection.
