FJDP, in collaboration with UNHCR Nigeria, has played a crucial role in empowering vulnerable internally displaced women at Naka Camp in Gwer West Local Government Area of Benue state. These women received training in two key areas: pastry-making and artificial nail application.
These income-generating activities are not only equipping these IDPs with valuable skills, but they are also offering a path towards self-employment. The newfound abilities will enable them to generate income to support their families, even while residing in these camps. Beyond financial independence, these skills contribute to the well-being of the IDPs, allowing them to take care of their basic needs and offering valuable support for their psychological health.
This initiative isn't just about acquiring skills; it's a pathway towards mitigating the risk of gender-based violence (GBV). By self-reliance and economic independence, FJDP and UNHCR are making a significant impact on the lives of these women and their families.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to UNHCR Nigeria for its technical and financial support, which has made this transformative initiative possible.
