Victims Support Fund (VSF) on Thursday 25th October 2018 flagged-off its dry season farming intervention in Yunusari Local Government Area Yobe State. This intervention aims to administer appropriate support to victims of insurgency and facilitate the restoration of livelihood through economic empowerment of households in the Northeast.
The VSF agro-based intervention provides agricultural inputs which include: mini tractors, water pumps, improved varieties of seeds, fertilizers, pesticides and sprayers. The dry-season farming programme will improve household nutrition and also engender financial independence for victims who have returned to their communities. A total of three thousand 3000 households will receive agricultural inputs across the three most affected states of Borno Adamawa and Yobe.
VSF continues to work to restore hope to victims of insurgency through promoting education for children through the provision of learning materials, introduction of foster care programmes for orphaned children, providing psychosocial support for women and children, economic empowerment for women, strengthening health systems to cater for the medical needs of victims, reconstruction of public buildings and peace building advocacy.
