2. Bread For The World Project
The Bread for the World project is a long term project which FADU has implemented over the years with convincing results. Targetted at helping FADU in creating additional extensive reach in rural communities in Nigeria. This project has really helped in expanding the number of FADU Community Associations (FCAs) as well carrying out incisive trainings for FCA leaders through various cooperative and wealth creation modules. FCAs which are designed to be democratic in nature, has been modified to create opportunities for womenfolk to have their voices heard. Currently, FCAs are encouraged to reserve 40% of its leadership positions strictly for women to occupy. We are glad to report that quite a number of FCAs are already meeting this requirement. Efforts are still on in ensuring compliance. Over 300 FCAs have been trained and established since commencement. FADU is currently on expansionary effort as 30 new FCAs are being established while strengthening of existing ones is also ongoing. More rural folks are being empowered within the scope of available resources. Thanks to Bread For The world and Oxfam Novib Nigeria initiatives.
FADU o!, Ajose wa ni!
