JALINGO – The TY Danjuma Foundation has released about N35.1 million to five Non-governmental Organisations (NGOs) to undertake various community-based projects across Taraba State under its Grantee projects for 2014.

The Executive Director of the Foundation, Dr Florence Eta-AkinAina, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Jalingo on Wednesday.
Eta-AkinAina said the funds which were approved by the Chairman of the Foundation, Retired Gen. TY Danjuma and the Board of Trustees, were made available for intervention for projects in the areas of health, education, income generation as well as the Taraba Community Fund.

She said that four representatives each from the five beneficiary-organisations had already received training on the implementation of their programmes and on how to access the funds.

She said the organisations are: Chagro Care Trust (GCT); Great Women Multipurpose Cooperative; Great Gender Grassroots Foundation (G3F); Better Living Advancement Centre; and Guidance and Counseling Development Association (GCDA).
