As part of efforts to empower vulnerable groups, food items, clothing, and money have been distributed to a rural community in Durumi 2, of the Federal Capital Territory, (FCT) to mark the New Year activities in the country. 

Distributing the items, in Abuja, the Founder of Zoe’s Flower Foundation Uchenna Duru-Nwaotule said the program aims to reach out to vulnerable women and children in rural communities.  

She added that such a program is paramount to ensure the expression of love as the season demands every like-minded person to display to promote unity in the country. 

Duru-Nwaotule while congratulating the beneficiaries stresses that plans have already been made to provide more skills acquisition training and empowerment to curb extreme poverty among women and children.

We are here this New Year’s Day to do our usual annual reach-out program for the vulnerable, especially for women and the girl child, in the FCT.

It has been our tradition to seize every opportunity and occasion to put smiles on the faces of the less privileged, especially women.

We aim to aid the vulnerable girl child and women to achieve their full potential, live productive lives, and make an impact in the world. We aspire to eliminate the injustice of poverty and give the vulnerable a chance at living

We at Zoe’s Flower The Foundation have decided to focus more on skills acquisition programs and empowerment of the vulnerable

Uche further laments the ugly situation she had with caregivers, informing the basis of setting up the foundation to help the poor and vulnerable society.

It is a foundation set up over ten years ago, it was occasioned by bad experiences I had with a caregiver that I entrusted my daughter with and who almost killed her, so that gave me the idea, to set up something, a platform that will help, particularly baby girls, and our focus is on the girl child, but we have expanded our focus since then to include issues that concern women, so we work to empower women, especially rural women

We are trying to empower beneficiaries, economically, educationally, and vocationally so they can be who God has ordained them to be.

On his part, the Head of Durumi 2 Community, Chief Danjuma Anyidadubo, commended the foundation for its support for the community.

These beneficiaries, Victory Timothy, and Angela Sunday among others shared their joy as they prayed for the foundation to grow in all ramifications.

The foundation is worried over the increasing rate of poverty, prompting the establishment of a monthly skills acquisition program to empower over 1 million youths inclusive of males and females, even as they visited some hospitals with items and cash gifts to patients.
