Foundation empowers Taraba women for self-reliance

January 31, 2022

The Advocacy and Rehabilitation Foundation in Taraba State has unveiled plans aimed at discouraging women from depending on their husbands for basic needs.

Reeling out the plans in Wukari local council, Executive Director of the Foundation, Lucy Samuel said the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Japanese government are supporting the plan.

While advising the participants to be prudent with whatever would be given to them after the two days of training, she also charged them to use the lessons learned at the Programme to expand their businesses.

The 400 women trained by the foundation were drawn from Wukari and Ibi councils.

The foundation had also concluded plans to complement government efforts in the areas of sensitisation on Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).

Commending the foundation’s move, Secretary to the Government (SSG), Anthony Jellason, noted that the peace being enjoyed in Taraba is the reason for the success of the various programmes being implemented in the state.

The Guardian learnt that the programme is also being executed in Nasarawa and Benue States.

While expressing their gratitude, both the council chairman of Wukari and that of Ibi, urged the beneficiaries to take advantage of the programme by sharing the knowledge they acquired with other women in their communities
