No fewer that 4000 households are benefiting from the North-East Food Security and Livelihood Emergency Support Project of the World Bank in Adamawa.
The state Project Manager of Fadama 111 Programme that handles the project, Alhaji Mohammed Kabiru, disclosed this on Thursday while speaking at a capacity building training for some beneficiaries of the project from central zone of the state.
Kabiru said the training was for the beneficiaries who had been provided with improved seedlings, fertilisers, water pumps, herbicides, sheep and goats.
He said the training programme was to enhance their production capacity in yields and animal husbandry.
He said that the project would also embark on rehabilitation of structures in 400 communities in the state.
The project manager said structures to be rehabilitated include: markets, culverts and boreholes.
The Representative of Digihome Global Ltd., Ahmed Murtala, that is conducting the training, urged the beneficiaries to make maximum use of it to improve their lot.
Some of the beneficiaries, Mrs Dora Jonah and Abdulsalam Maigari, said the project had impacted positively on their lives.
“The five goats and sheep given to me under this programme are multiplying,” Maigari said. (NAN)
