The Kukah Center (TKC) trains Nigerian Christian widows in the basics of resilience and conflict management skills.

The first phase of the program held in Kaduna, North West Nigeria was hailed as a huge success.

The project, titled “Supporting and Building the Resilience of Conflict-Affected Christian Women in Kaduna,” aimed to develop strong spirits in women to emerge from their trauma and become useful members of society.

After the successful completion of the first phase of the project, the NGO is also collaborating with The Fountain of Life Church, Lagos, to implement the second phase.

“This project aims to train 50 Christian widows who have been affected by violent conflict in Benue State,” TKC said.

Its goals include building social resilience and economic recovery for widows on the margins of the state who have been neglected by government and non-government interventions.

“The participants are survivors of different forms of hardship occasioned by years of ethnic-religious crises and violent conflicts in Benue State, with no or limited means of earning a living,” the director of TKC said. , Father Atta Barkindo.

TKC is a policy research institute founded by Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah of Sokoto.

The centre, which has the motto “Faith, Leadership and Public Policy”, has offices in Abuja and Kaduna and treats political leadership as a collaborative exercise that requires multiple governance structures at the level of individuals, households, small businesses , organized private sector, NGOs and government levels.
