ECF in collaboration with VSF have strengthened the Agro Enterprise of 3000 households affected by insurgency by facilitating access to agricultural resources for rain fed farming empowerment (fertilizers liquid, pesticides, improved seeds such maize, cowpea, rice and extension services. This have contributed in restoration their livelihoods
3000HH vulnerable victims of Insurgency were identified and selected based on criteria and access to land and subsequently supported through facilitation of inputs and extension services and engaged them into dry season farming activities. They were supported with inputs such as power tillers (mini tractors), improved seeds of onion, pepper and cabbage, liquid fertilizers, pre and post herbicides, sprayer, water pump and accessories, technical support and extension services from other partners to cultivate not less than half hectares of vegetables in 5 LGAs in Adamawa State. .
This is aimed at improving their agro based enterprise, nutrition and livelihoods which will ultimately reduce the number of people in need of daily food support. 30000HH with the average of 5 family members in three years simultaneously were carefully enlisted .
Mubi North being one of the 7 LGAs affected by the insurgency has many widows and orphans, ECF through funding from VSF supported 300 HH which consist of widows, orphans and other vulnerable victims were supported with livestock four per HH three female and one male with stipend for the feeding of the livestock.
Livestock breeding is very common in Mubi North. Mubi has the second largest livestock market in Nigeria. Many HH depends on livestock enterprise before the insurgency and during the insurgency many livestock has been killed and lost. The support go a long in bringing many back to the business and this has increase their livestock enterprise as well as livelihoods
The impact of the insurgency is more on Education as most schools’ infrastructure, facilities have been a primary target for the terrorist during the crisis. School buildings were destroyed alongside reading and writing materials. The impact was huge which also reduced the number of pupils in schools.
5000 in-schools pupils in selected 13 primary schools in Michika LGA were supported with educational materials like textbooks, school bags, school sandals notebook, chalk, maps and other writing and teaching materials. The SBMC was also strengthened with community monitoring structures pu.t in place. This has improved school enrolment and the number of in-school pupils in Michika. The project is funded by Victims Support Fund Abuja Nigeria
Immediately after the recaptured of Michika by the Joint Military Task Force, a lot of the communities’ members have returned but there was a fragile peace as there was distrust within the communities who are pointing fingers. ECF after due assessments, we conducted d a 6 months pilot peace building project in 5 wards of the 16 wards in Michika supported by NERI in 2015. Youth in various communities were identified and 16 football clubs from the communities who participated in the peace football competition and peace meetings
In 2016 after measuring the impacts, our partners advised and supported us to expand the activities to 32 clubs from the communities. The seven-month activities supported by NERI were aimed at expanding peace by engaging the youths through football and peace building meetings. Huge success was made at various stage of the implementation. The activities involve over 1000 youths in 16 wards of Michika LGAThe objective of this project is to promote peaceful- coexistence
Global Climate Change is one of the serious threats to sustainable development in Adamawa State and Nigeria as a whole as it is threatening our food security.
The contribution of Nigeria to Green House Gas emission is negligible while the projected impacts of global climate change in the country are devastating. These impacts will be severe due to limited adaptation, mitigation, education as well as capacity of many agrarian communities in the State.
We have been advocating and promoting climate change actions, education conducting awareness and sensitization campaign in various communities and schools in Adamawa State,
We have been engaging Government, community members including farmers and women groups, Academic Institutions/Professionals, and other stakeholders on taking actions on environmental issues. We have engaged with different stakeholders at different levels including the Governor in 2019 and this gave birth to the Green Adamawa Project (GAP)
on 17th July 2019 in collaboration with Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources Adamawa State, we launched the Green Adamawa Project (GAP) and was flagged off by the Executive Governor RT Hon Ahmadu Fintiri with planting trees in the Government House Yola .
We have several times engaged all stakeholders on climate actions and last year one single individual donated 20,000 seedlings to his community.
