09 JULY 2020
In continuation of their countrywide tour around Nigeria, EVERLASTING JOY FOUNDATION visited widows in Ayede-Ekiti, Ilafon-Ekiti and Isan-Ekiti. During their visit, additional 80 Widows have been added to the existing 6000 Widows in the EVERLASTING JOY FOUNDATION’S database. The profiling of the widows on 09 July 2020 took place at the palace of Oni-Isan of Isan-Ekiti, Alafon of Ilafon-Ekiti and the Ayede-Ekiti Multipurpose hall respectively. The outreach also featured distribution of foodstuff items to the participant. This is in line with the Foundation’s aim to help vulnerable widows who were facing extreme poverty in the society irrespective of tribe or religious background. The EVERLASTING JOY Foundation has engaged in corporate responsibility at other parts of the country, improving the condition of the poor widows. The profiling event in Isan-Ekiti, Ilafon-Ekiti and Ayede-Ekiti is a continuation of our responsibility to reach-out to the widows and needy in rural areas of Ekiti State and to identify with them, during this critical time of our National life. Our registration is free and still open at our office at EVERLASTING JOY Foundation in Abuja Country-Office. We have also arranged with different anchors to train our register widows with unique skills to encourage them on self-reliance. EVERLASTING JOY has made adequate provision for start-up capital for widows interested in contributing to the local economy. Some areas of the training include:
Making of Akara/buns/puff-puff
Making of Cake/Chin-Chin
Fish farming, Goat Farming, Snail-farming, Poultry farming
Making palm-oil
Making of Soup / bleach
Fashion design
Hair Dressing
We will also continue to advocate for the structure that will open social-economic opportunities to the vulnerable widows. Efforts is underway to collaborate with the National Center for Women Development on an effective structure that will help the widows. For those that are economically productive, contributing to the local economy, we have arranged for Widows’ cooperative to enable them to enjoy a revolving interest-free loan. However, some of the rural widows, in our database, will be engaged in what we called Agric-trading for poverty alleviation. This means that we shall provide a value chain platform to the widows in rural farming to enable them to maximise profit from their products. These are efforts by the EVERLASTING JOY Foundation to empower widows to be self-reliance and self-sustaining.
Long live EVERLASTING JOY Foundation
Long live Ekiti State
Long live Nigeria
