Oxfam’s Strategic Partnership Project-Financing for Development in  Nigeria

Overview of Training for  Community Women and Men on Needs Assessment, Livelihood,  Budgeting, and Influencing for Enugu State 

This training seeks to empower community women and men to participate in decision making, become active citizens and benefit from better living standards through increased availability of essential services.  The objective is to strengthen the capacity of 200 women and 175 men on community needs and sustainable livelihood assessment in Enugu state within 3 years. We  trained about 80 persons in January 2017. We have also trained in Rivers and Delta states. Altogether since we set out in September 2016, we have trained over 350 persons across the 3 projects locations -  Delta, Rivers and Enugu states. 

  At the end of the 3 years we expect  the emergence of a critical mass of informed community members on issues of community needs assessments and budgets as well as taxation .

create a situation of improved policies and practices of government and private sector to result in reduced poverty and extreme inequality through more effective and efficient management of Nigeria’s tremendous resources and increased citizen participation.

There are 5 pathway of change in this project namely; Improved Policies of Government, Improved Policies of Private Sector, Strengthened CSOs, Increased Citizens’ Voices and finally building Stronger and wider Alliances. We are more concerned with strengthened civil society organizations and increased citizens voices. All of you beneficiaries are carefully selected to represent Civil society, local communities, market women, cooperatives, small scale farmers, artisans, traders, persons with disability, faith based organizations etc. It is our expectation that this project and the efforts all the Oxfam partners have put in will result in improved policies and practices of government; it will reduce poverty among community members and will increased our voices particularly the way we relate and engage with government officials and / or Ministries.

Kebetkache Women Development & Resource Centre is conducting this training but the trainers are officials of the Niger Delta Budget Monitoring Group (NDEBUMOG); both Kebetkache and NDEBUMOG are  part of the local partners of  Oxfam Novib.  We welcome NDEBUMOG and specifically thank them for their impactful training since we started this process. 

The training will include lecture on introductions to budgeting, needs assessment,  monitoring and evaluation and there will be practical sessions on needs assessment and budgeting. It is will be highly participatory and interactive every body has a safe space to discuss freely. 

We welcome all of you to the training and appreciate the cooperation of the Enugu state government through the Ministry of Women Affairs, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs);  the Enugu state Economic Management Team for their support and full participation in the project.  On behalf of Kebetkache I want to express our goodwill to Mrs Oluka, the Perm Secretary, Ministry of Women Affairs we learnt she was involved in a car accident and has been hospitalised. We wish her a speedy recovery.

We also deeply appreciate Oxfam Novib, particularly Mr Celestine Odo, without Oxfam Kebetkache Women Development & Resource Centre wouldn’t be training right now in Enugu state. 

For the two days that we will spend together here, I urge all of us to take everything here seriously. You have a responsibility to learn and take back to your group or community to effect desirable changes.

 Thank you and welcome!

Kebetkache Nigeria
