As part of its efforts towards women empowerment, the Women Farmers Advancement Networks (WOFAN), commissioned a Multipurpose Agro Processing Center in Nassarawa Local Government Area of Kano state on 3rd of June, 2015.
WOFAN Multipurpose Agro center was commissioned by WOFAN CEO, Hajiya Salamatu Garba to support Women of Gaskiya Multipurpose Cooperative for the purpose of storage, agro and food processing, distribution, advertising and sale of improved varieties and farm implements to female farmers of the community.
Such activities cannot take place without the exchange of information and as such the center will be offering literacy programmes thereby serving as service and information provider towards improving quality of community life.
The center will also serve for skill acquisition programme to provide income opportunity for the rural farmers as Grinding Machines have been provided by WOFAN at the center.
100 women groups of 20 members per group will use the center which will also provide poverty alleviation strategy that needs to be promoted for the improvement of the quality of community life.
The underlying reason for the implementation of the Agro Multi-purpose Community Centre is to bring much needed services closer to people and to provide the community with the opportunity to communicate with government. Multi-Purpose Community Centers have been identified as the primary approach for the implementation of development communication and information programmes.
