Women group in Bunyia community of Boki LGA of Cross River State has embarked on the project of planting turmeric.

The purpose is for the group, with membership running close to 50, to pull their resources together and boost their incomes as individuals and groups.

The women’s group is enjoying funding from the Offer of Jobs and Opportunities for Women and Children Network.

Already, the group has bought a large expanse of land and planted turmeric with the hope that it would yield much for them.

Founder of the Offer of Jobs and Opportunities for Women and Children Network, Dr. Tony Wemton, an agriculture engineer, explained that the turmeric project is a stepping stone for harnessing the potentials of women, adding that they aim to empower households in the communities.

“The first step of empowerment for the community women will enable them in all its ramifications.

They have also planned to organize free agricultural programs and First Aid training for members of local agriculture cooperative societies.

Speaking to journalists, the President of the Boki Women of Cross River under the banner of Bayinyi Boki Worldwide, Mrs. Florence Odok, enjoined Irruan women to show interest in development programs organized for the Boki women.

She also encouraged them to participate actively in the Boki women’s annual August social and networking meetings.

Public Relations Officer of Bayinyi Boki Worldwide, Ambassador Florence Kekong, disclosed that the women are also in other areas of community farming which have boosted food supplies in the State.
