3000 Women Get Empowerment In Akwa-Ibom

Wife of the Akwa Ibom state Governor, Mrs. Martha Udom Emmanuel said her pet project, Family Empowerment and Youth Re-orientation Path Initiative (FEYRep) has empowered more than 3, 000 women in different areas of life in the state.

Mrs. Udom disclosed this at the weekend in Uyo while briefing newsmen on the achievements recorded by FEYRep since its inauguration in September 21, 2015.

“Women empowerment is one of the topmost agenda in my heart. I have empowered more than 3, 000 women since inception of FEYRep. Why I am doing this is because I realised that when a woman has something doing, the family will function very well and she will be able to take care of her children.

“So, I decided to go into empowerment of women in different areas. There are some that acquired vocational skills like tailoring and hair dressing. For those in farming and trading, we give them take-off grants.

“So I can say that we have recorded positive results from these empowerment programmes. Women are beginning to do something with their hands better than what used to be in the past,” she observed.
