An NGO, Women Initiative for Sustainable Environment (WISE) has distributed 750 dollars worth (about N300,000) of food items to the poor and vulnerable households in Kaduna State. WISE’s Founder and Programme Director, Ms Olanike Olugboji, announced the distribution of the food items in Kaduna on Tuesday.
She added that her NGO also distributed 150 clean cook stoves worth N675,000 to women and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) saying the gesture was to increase households’ resilience to hunger.
Olugboji explained that WISE’s friends and partners from the United States in support of the NGO’s corona virus (COVID-19) relief programme, donated the 750 dollars.
According to her, beneficiaries of the food items are mostly the aged women, widows, children from indigent homes, security guards, IDPs and helpless housewives who beg from house to house. She said that the food items were distributed in two phases and the 150 clean cook stoves were distributed along with the food items in the second phase.
She noted that the stoves were freely given out under the Sustainable Fuel wood Management project in Nigeria. According to her, the project is being funded by Global Environment Facility and United Nations Development Programme and coordinated by the Energy Commission of Nigeria.
She expressed the organisation’s appreciation to individuals and corporate bodies who believed in WISE and had continued to support the NGO to deliver impactful interventions.

Having a nice stove is important in any kind of household. Well, if you are still eating takeouts and deliveries, then you are not really doing a good job. Think about it, how much money do you put on your food, and how much would it cost for you to cook your own? I believe that it is a lot cheaper to cook your own food rather than buy it. I hope that this makes some sense, anyway, it is important to have a stove.
