A charitable organisation, Norgem Noilers, in collaboration with Norgem (Nig.) Limited has empowered some rural women in Imo State with poultry products, as aid to support their commercial activities.
Mrs Norma Nworga a Philanthropic, while distributing the poultry products to the women at Isiala Central School Nnarambia Ahiara Ahiazu Mbaise Local Government area of the state, said the aim was to empower rural women.
She said that there was the need to cushion the effects of the current economic challenges.
Nworga said the project would have 200 women collecting eight birds each, drugs and feeds with teachings on the best way to grow and manage the birds commercially and for better yield.
She said that another of such empowerment would hold by September in Ahiazu Mbaise Local Government area after which the gesture would be extended to women in other local government areas of Imo.
