Challenge

According to the National Agency for the Control of AIDS, In 2016, Cross River State ranked 4.4% in HIV prevalence rate, a lot of households has been affected causing an increase in poverty level among households, while those with disabilities remain increasingly poor due to lack of access to education, employment and isolation. This creates a cycle of dependency,as most households cannot provide a basic meal, leading to malnutrition, increased disability, risky behaviors and poverty.

Solution

Enabled to Enable provides vocational skills training, small scale business management training, support group development and coordination to promote an entrepreneurial spirit among beneficiaries. Beneficiaries are given starter packs to start their own small businesses, while others are linked up to employment opportunities and others retained as master trainers in the organization.

Long-Term Impact

The project will improve livelihood and build resiliency of 1,000 households and empower the household to remain stable, healthy and safe by training them on skills that will help them generate income and provide for their families.
