Eradicating poverty in all forms remains one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. Nigeria has the largest number of people living in extreme poverty, with an estimated 90 million Nigerians around half of the century’s population living on less than $1. 90 a day. A sum that leaves them without enough food, housing, health care or education.

launched a nationwide foodbank program providing food to vulnerable women in deprived communities.

In addition to this we put a skill acquisition training in place for women in IDP settlements to learn how to make these food banks so that they can gain additional revenue. These foodbanks are then placed in supermarkets so that customers and supermarkets can donate canned and packaged foods to help their local communities.
