Brief Description about yourself; I am the General Secretary of the Fantsuam Foundation. The organization facilitates access to microfinance and ICT as tools for the alleviation of poverty among rural women in Nigeria. I work closely with the national Chairman to monitor our projects, providing the professional and logistic and support they need. The organisation has a crop of volunteers; it is my duty to recruit and support them in their various capacities.
I teach basic computer skills to girls and women at the Bayanloco Community Learning Centre, and this initiative was awarded the first Hafkin Africa Prize (http://www.apc.org/english/hafkin 2001.
This aspect of my work is of special interest to me because it provides me a forum to meet with women and girls to promote their access to relevant health, economic and educational information. I am particularly keen on promoting accessibility and availability of relevant information, for women’s daily lives in rural communities. This has led our organization to explore partnerships that will facilitate a broad spectrum of affordable low-tech ICT facilities. We are members of the Association for Progressive Communication and African Stakeholders Network of the United Nations ICT Task Force.
I am a trained lawyer and teacher who joined the NGO work 6 years ago. I have found satisfaction in working in the Northern part of Nigeria with the rural communities. And my duties are mainly to surpervise and coordinate the daily operations of staff. To ensure the organizational projects are properly implemented. I am answerable to the program director whom I report to monthly and quarterly.
