Improving Quality of Life for Rural Nigerians

改善尼日利亚农村居民的生活质量

Over the past five years, the Feed the Future Nigeria livelihoods project has helped pull some of the most vulnerable families in Nigeria out of poverty.This U.S. government foreign assistance program has helped Nigerians improve agricultural production, income generation, nutrition, and sanitation.The 22.6 million dollars program in Nigeria began in 2013 and concluded just last month.Administered by the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID, and implemented by Catholic Relief Services,the program initially helped 42,000 poor households in Abuja - Nigeria's capital, Kebbi, and Sokoto states to increase agricultural production, diversify incomes, and improve nutrition.

在过去的五年中,尼日利亚未来生计项目已经帮助尼日利亚一些最脆弱的家庭摆脱了贫困。美国政府的对外援助项目在改善农业生产、创收、营养和卫生设施方面帮助了尼日利亚人民。这项价值226万美元的尼日利亚项目始于2013年,于上个月结束。该项目由美国国际开发署USAID管理,由天主教救援服务组织实施。该项目起初帮助了尼日利亚首都阿布贾、科吉和索科托的42000个贫困家庭增加了农业生产,使其收入多样化,改善了他们的营养状况。

It also provided livelihoods planning skills, adult literacy and numeracy instruction, and cash transfers to the most vulnerable households.In 2017, the program expanded to Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe states, reaching 10,000 more households."This project took a holistic approach to agriculture, to livelihoods, and to social development," said USAID Mission Director Stephen Haykin.

它还向最弱势家庭提供了生计规划技能、成人识字和算术指导以及现金。在2017年,该项目扩展到阿达马瓦、博尔诺和约贝州,覆盖了上万户家庭。 “这个项目采取了的方法比较全面,解决了农业、生计和社会发展问题,”美国国际开发署的任务主管Stephen Haykin说。

It addressed the needs of the extreme poor by improving incomes and reducing vulnerabilities,and in this way, serves as a model for efforts to build resilience in rural Nigeria.The USAID program introduced new technology, improving agricultural production and access to input markets such as quality seeds for smallholder farmers.As a result, crop yields doubled for more than 33,000 farmers.The program also helped farmers to reduce post-harvest losses.

“它通过提高收入和减少脆弱性来解决极端贫困人口的需求,并以此作为在尼日利亚农村努力建设社会复原力的榜样。”美国国际开发署的项目引入了新技术来改善农业生产,并获得了小农户优质种子等市场准入的渠道。结果,33000多名农民的作物产量翻了一番。该项目还帮助农民减少收获后的损失。

The activity engaged poor households in the rural economy by providing business skills and financial literacy support,vocational trainings and lending schemes; and safe spaces for adolescent girls.Additionally, more than 2,000 community workers were trained to deliver over 1.5 million counseling and group sessions on nutrition that led to a 22 percent drop in stunting, 10 percent drop in wasting, and 53 percent increase in exclusive breastfeeding rates in targeted locations.A cash transfer component alone helped lift 2,740 households out of poverty.State and local governments have shown positive support towards sustaining the gains from the program.The U.S. is proud to work with its partner Nigeria to improve the lives of the Nigerian people.

该活动使农村经济中的贫困家庭参与进来,途径是提供商业技能和金融扫盲支持、职业培训和贷款方案;为青春期少女提供安全的空间。此外,2000多名社区工作人员接受了培训,他们发布了150多万次的营养咨询及群组讨论,这使发育迟缓下降了百分之二十二,浪费下降了百分之十,目标地点的纯母乳喂养率增加了百分之五十三。仅以现金支付的方式就帮助了2740个家庭摆脱了贫困。州和地方政府对该计划的可持续性收益表示积极支持。美国很自豪能与伙伴尼日利亚合作改善尼日利亚人民的生活。
