January 18, 2017 @ 5:47 pm at

WEP, FMWR Train rural women and girls on Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS), Leadership and Conflict Resolution, Slab Construction and Facility Maintenance in Nigeria.

Girls and Women Initiative in Nigeria (G-WIN) project is an initiative of the federal government of Nigeria to empower hard to reach women and girls in the country. Five (5) Ministries – Ministry of Water Resources, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Works, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Communications, are the implementing ministries piloting the G-WIN project. These ministries “are to seek out innovative approaches to reach out to the poorest girls and women by enhancing the already existing opportunities and opening more support and increase the number of girls and women gainfully employed…” Women Environmental Programme (WEP) has been commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Water Resources to implement the training component of the ministry’s G-WIN project.

The Federal Ministry of Water Resources vision for the G-WIN project is to make women leaders in water management. This the Ministry wants to achieve by building capacities of women and girls to be leaders in water management, provision of water and sanitation facilities in public places and improving the hygienic condition of the rural populations.

 

WEP has since trained rural women and girls in four project pilot states of Abia, Bauchi, Plateau and Osun on Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS), Leadership and Conflict Resolution, Slab Construction and Facility Maintenance. Over 40 women and girls in each state were trained on CLTS, slab construction and facility maintenance and over 20 were trained on leadership and conflict resolution.

The Federal Ministry of Water Resources G-WIN project was officially flagged-off by the Hon. Minister of Water Resources, Sarah Reng Ochekpe on the 20th day of January 2014 in Abuja, at Nicon Luxury Hotel, Area 11, Garki, Abuja.
