YOUTH EMPOWERMENT

FARMER OUTREACH

  • SEI distributes rice farming equipment and tools to 29,000 farmers, across several rice producing states in Nigeria. We believe agriculture is a part of daily life and therefore should be inclusive to both men and women. Roughly 20% of the beneficiaries are women, they work to contribute to their families and household income on a daily basis. SEI inspires to encourage the participation of women in farming communities for future generations ahead. This creates socio-economic advancements for women to feel empowered & included in their villages.
  • Due to the pandemic, the SEIMask4all Campaign was used to empower women to make masks and protect their communities and provide them with income opportunities during tough times. The masks were distributed to small businesses, supermarkets and NGOs in Lagos, Abuja and Kano.
