Kano Gov’t Supports 1000 Female Farmers

The Kano State Government has shown its commitment to empowering female farmers by extending assistance to over 1,000 women in the state.

This initiative which commemorated International Women’s Day, was made possible through the Kano State Agro-Climatic Resilience in Semi-Arid Landscapes Project (ACReSAL).

According to an announcement shared on Kano State Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf’s official social media account on Saturday, March 9, the project distributed agricultural supplies like fertilizer, rice and maize seeds, goats, and water pumping machines to approximately 1,000 women in Kano.

The beneficiaries were carefully selected from communities near the Falgore forest. This strategic decision aimed to  help these women mitigate the adverse effects of climate change while also enhancing their livelihoods as rural farmers.

The focus on empowering women farmers highlights the importance of marking International Women’s Day with concrete actions that can drive real progress for women, particularly those in rural areas.

This program is part of the broader Kano State Agro-Climatic Resilience in Semi-Arid Landscapes Project (ACReSAL), reflecting the government’s ongoing efforts to strengthen the role of women in agriculture and increase their resilience against environmental challenges.
