The Rural Women Empowerment Programme (RUWEP) is a measure to combat poverty among women in rural communities. The programme creates opportunities for women to contribute to personal, family, and communal welfare, through empowerment projects tailored to meet the specific needs and capacities of beneficiaries. RUWEP enables families to increase their total income, directly facilitating poverty eradication, end to hunger, and access to education for children. As women become empowered, there is the attendant reduction in incidences of domestic violence and general discrimination against women.
Rural youth are the future of the agricultural sector. With a growing world population and decreasing agricultural productivity in combination with a rural exodus, sustainable food production and supply are threatened. Young farmers play an important role in ensuring food security for future generations but they face many challenges. Among rural, semi-rural and peri-urban young people, 67 per cent live in areas with strong agricultural potential, but many have limited access to markets (IFAD 2019)
About 500 million young people - about half of the youth population of developing countries - living in rural areas are prone to poverty, inequality and are faced with a range of challenges.hence, concern for agriculture and rural development become synonymous, with a common root and that the bedrock of agriculture and agricultural development in Africa is rural development, without which all efforts at agricultural development will be futile. We are training youths to practice modern farming techniques available at our farm settlement, Alice-Adejumobi Farms, in Ilaro, Ogun State. With this, we hope to reduce unemployment, while engaging them positively and taking them off the street of crime. A well equipped agricultural training school, which will attract best hands around the world to train youths from rural areas in self-sustenance and mechanized form of farming is our priority.
The health implications of shortages in the supply of water in Nigeria are massive. Because the percentage of people in the rural part of the country who have access to safe water is very small the direct health repercussions the situation imposes, especially on children, is often underestimated.

Traditionally, Chloroquine was a common treatment for Malaria. However, with the increase in chloroquine-resistant malaria, additional methods of control must be employed.
