The second phase of the fertilizer empowerment project for Christian IDPs in Kaduna state took place from 17th to 21st August 2023. Phase One of the project was conducted on 15-18 June 2023. Usually, fertilizer is applied twice by the farmers during the farming season for maximum effectiveness.
The objective of the empowerment project is to assist the Christian IDPs attain some measure of economic independence for self-sustenance. From the reports that followed the projects in 2022, many of the IDPs benefitted greatly from the fertilizer projects. Regrettably, the scope of the project this year was restricted to Kaduna state when compared with the projects last year.
