A non-governmental organisation (NGO), Scaling Rural Women Entrepreneurs for Community-led Digital Adaptation and Resilience in Africa, has trained over 2,000 rural women in five council wards in Vandeikya local government area of Benue State on business development and how to access tele-medicine in their localities.
The business development officer, Nduagu Jasper, who disclosed this during the exhibition of products produced by the women groups after a nine-month training, said the organisation engaged the service providers to facilitate the exercise.
Jasper said they have also provided computers and other health equipment in some primary health care centres to ensure that rural people, especially women, have access to health care services in their homes adding that their focus is not only on business development, but also health and climate change.
He maintained that over 162 rural women across five council wards have received training on food production and processing using local farm products to improve their business opportunities.
Jasper also intimated that 15 women groups with different trades were also trained in the production of quality products using locally sourced material in different designs and packaging to attract the attention of the global market.
He said the project which is implemented by Self Help Africa aimed at introducing women to different skill acquisitions, business, enterprise and development, and online marketing of products to attract business opportunities.
