The Alheri Center for Women and Child Care Development (ACWCCD), a non governmental organization on Friday trained the women of Kauna Village Savings and loans Association and Saint Justina’s women group Mayo Dasa on child care and development.
The organization also distributed materials worth thousands to the women in Jalingo, the Taraba state capital.
In her speech, the director of the NGO Eglah Ibrahim urged the women to always monitor their children against possible molestation by evil minded people. She particularly pointed out the girl children who she said are the most vulnerable.
The director said the training became necessary looking at the increasing level of rape cases and adoption of young people for rituals in the country.
In a vote of thanks, Miriam Dame, leader of Kauna village savings and loans association appreciated the organization for the kind gesture stressing that they will take the massege to their respective villages.
