The Federation of Muslim Women Association in Nigeria (FOMWAN), Kaduna State Branch, has sought the support of the state government to enable it complete its ongoing School for the Deaf project.
The President of the Association, Hajiya Aisha Tukur, made the appeal during an advocacy visit to the Deputy Governor, Dr Hadiza Balarabe, on Wednesday in Kaduna.
Tukur said that the project was about to be completed, hence the plea for a helping hand from the government.
We actually got support from UBEC, but it’s not enough for us to complete the project,” she said.
According to her, FOMWAN is a women-based organization which services are targeted at women and youth.
She said the association was doing a lot of work in the state, mostly assisting less privileged persons.
Responding , the Deputy Governor commended FOMWAN for carrying out humanitarian services in health, education and economic empowerment in communities in the state.
Balarabe noted that the organization’s intervention efforts were in line with government’s ‘Human Capital Development Vision’.
She explained that the vision ensured that Kaduna residents were educated and healthy, and also enjoyed decent standard of living.
She pledged the support of the state government in encouraging such partnership at all times.
