WOMEN EMPOWERMENT UPDATES IBADAN, OYO STATE

The empowerment of women is essential for effective development, both at a community level and in society as a whole. For almost 13 years Development Africa (DA) has been working with women who are HIV positive and where referred to the programme after losing their husbands to AIDS and then being diagnosed themselves with HIV/AIDS, or through various ante-natal programmes that check them when they are pregnant. These women come from poor backgrounds with low levels of education and due to the virus, have become ostracized in their communities and struggle to provide for themselves and their families. Little has been done in the areas of rehabilitation and creating income methods for these women.

 DA provides the initial cost of setting up the business (rent, initial stock, etc.) and provides consistent educational training programmes and workshops on the development and management of their business. The women are monitored throughout the year to make sure the shops are operating effectively.

 Since the first shop that opened near the end of 2006, DA to date has opened 66 successful shops/business in Ibadan, Oyo State.

 These businesses have empowered and trained the women who had lost hope and a means to support themselves and their children.
