WOFAN Newsletter – VOL 1, Q1/Q2. Nov 2022-April 2023


Dear friends and partners,

It brings me great pleasure to present to you our newsletter for Q1 and Q2, 2023. In this edition, we will share with you how our collaboration with the Mastercard Foundation is making a significant impact on the lives of farmers in Nigeria. In the first quarter, we trained more than 600 extension workers in ten states in northern Nigeria to provide support to smallholder farmers. Our efforts resulted in 225,000 young farmers and processors across ten northern states receiving inputs for dry season production. In spite of a flood in Jigawa state, WOFAN women demonstrated resilience. WOFAN Bagauda branch commissioned a borehole to enhance access to safe drinking water. WOFAN also marked International Women’s Day with a DigitAll training on innovation and technology for gender equality. WOFAN also conducted group formation and leadership training to equip the extension workers with the skills and knowledge required to establish and lead effective farmer groups in their respective communities. In Q2, we trained and provided extension workers with the necessary tools to utilize ICT-led agricultural applications to enhance agricultural productivity.

We are proud to report the progress and successes achieved. We remain committed to empowering smallholder farmers, particularly women and youth, to improve their livelihoods and enhance food security in Nigeria. We appreciate the support and partnership of the Mastercard Foundation and all our stakeholders who have contributed to the achievement of our goals. As we look to the remaining half of the year, we are optmistic about the prospects for further progress and impact. Thank you for your continued support.
