Challenge

Edondon community is in the northern part of Cross River State, Nigeria and has a high rate of poverty because of lack of access to basic amenities like schools, road networks and schools. The inhabitants are mostly subsistence farmers and have no market for their goods, living on less than a dollar per day. Because of the high rate of poverty, women are left to fend for their families, girls as young as 12 already have children.

Solution

The project will provide vocational skills that will enable women earn an income and send the children back to school, while girls who have dropped out of school will also acquire the skills and be re-enrolled into formal school.

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 200 women to rise out of poverty and improve their household economic status.
