Women Empowerment: Aisha Buhari empowers 2200 women in Kano

Aisha has appealed to high-profile politicians, business men and cor­porate individuals to support ben­eficiaries of her pet project, Future Assured by providing funds for them to establish themselves and become self-reliant. Aisha Buhari who spoke at Kano state Government House during the graduation ceremony of 2,200 women who were trained in differ­ent skills under the Future Assured programme also used the opportu­nity to witness the induction of other beneficiaries into the programme. “Let me also call on all privileged, well-meaning individuals in Kano state, to emulate this effort, as the turn-out of this training has revealed the interest of women to get involved in income generating activities. I also wish to call on leaders, both political and corporate, to assist these gradu­ating women with startup funds, so that they can hit the ground run­ning,” she stated. The First Lady who was accom­panied by wife of the Vice President, Dolapo Osinbajo and wives of some state governors, reiterated her com­mitment to investing in women for the betterment of the society. She expressed happiness that, “these women have already started making money from these skills. They are now empowered to aug­ment the family purse, solve their immediate financial problems, mari­tal and family issues with more con­fidence.” According to her, “I will not get tired of restating the age old adage that training a woman translates to training the whole community. I be­lieve that these skills you have learnt will be transferred to your children, your sisters, your friends and even your neighbours, either directly or by subsidizing your charges to them.”

Girl child education is receiving more attention in Kano State through a new programme by the state government.

The wife of the president, Aisha Buhari who is supporting this project is also empowering over 2200 women through her own project.
