In a joint meeting with the Secretary-General of UPF Nigeria, Dr. George Ikpot, in Abuja recently, Ambassador Godwin Apple, explained the potential benefits in agricultural practices and how best it is for such projects to be used for independent employment.

Ambassador Godwin Apple, continue that Women development in rural areas is crucial for several reasons.

Firstly, it is essential for promoting gender equality and empowering women. By investing in women’s development, we can ensure that they have equal access to education, healthcare, and economic opportunities, thus breaking the cycle of poverty and improving their overall well-being.

Secondly, promoting women’s development in rural areas can contribute to the overall development of these communities.

Women play a significant role in agriculture, farming, and other rural sectors, and by providing them with the necessary skills and resources, we can enhance their productivity and increase agricultural output.

This, in turn, can boost the local economy, improve food security, and reduce rural poverty.

In addition, Amb. Dr. Elizabeth Ariyo, says that women’s empowerment in rural areas can lead to better health outcomes for themselves and their families.

When women have access to education and healthcare services, they are more likely to make informed decisions regarding their own health and that of their children.

This can result in reduced maternal and infant mortality rates and improved overall health in rural communities.

Ambassador Godwin Apple, concluded by his approval to women’s development in rural areas, saying this can contribute to environmental sustainability.

Women often have a deep understanding of the local environment and traditional knowledge of sustainable practices.

By involving women in environmental conservation and management initiatives, we can ensure that their valuable insights are utilized, leading to better resource management and preservation of natural resources.

Embarking on women’s development in rural areas is crucial for promoting gender equality, improving overall community development, enhancing health outcomes, and fostering environmental sustainability.

It is an investment that can bring numerous benefits to individuals, communities, and society as a whole.
