The Federal government through the ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development on Saturday distributed N56 million to 2,800 indigent women including widows, the vulnerable and the disabled in Anambra State.

Honourable Minister for Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouk flagged-off the ceremony at Prof. Dora Akunyili Women Development Center, Awka, Anambra State yesterday.

She said President Muhammadu Buhari’s Administration has paid more attention to the plight of the poor and vulnerable in the country despite the economic slump and glaring revenue challenges.

Farouk said the administration focused on such endeavours because poverty reduction has become a major objective of governments all over the world, adding that this informed the decision of Buhari to initiate the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP) as a strategy for reducing poverty and enhancing social inclusion.

She said the Grant for Rural Women programme was introduced in 2020 to sustain the social inclusion agenda of President Buhari’s administration, insisting that it is consistent with the president’s new national vision of lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in 10 years.

Farouk who was represented by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Bashir Nura Alkali, said, “It is designed to provide a one-off grant to some of the poorest and most vulnerable women in rural and peri-urban areas of the country.

“A cash grant of N20,000.00 will be disbursed to about 125,000 poor women across the 36 States of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory. Our target in Anambra State is to disburse the grant to about 2,800 beneficiaries across all Local Government Councils. The grant is expected to increase income and productive assets of target beneficiaries.
