No fewer than 500 women-Ied households that are victims of flood disasters are to benefit from the Integrated Basic Needs Assistance by the MALALA Fund programmes.
Founded by student and Nobel laureate, Malala Yousafzai, Malala Fund invests in girls’ education.
The Program Officer of MALALA Fund in Nigeria, Maryam Danburam, announced the gesture on Tuesday while delivering a speech during a one-day stakeholders consultative workshop in Jigawa held in Dutse, the state capital.
Danburam explained that the program will be executed through a company, My IT Consult Ltd., to ensure accountability and transparency among the vulnerable flood victims in the selected communities.
The program officer, who urged the stakeholders to be transparent in the selection of beneficiaries, said three Local Government Areas of Ringim, Taura and Auyo were selected for the program.
