The main objective of the women empowerment programme is to train women in the processing techniques of harvested produce and packaged properly in order to obtain a longer shelf life and attractive sales. The imparting of such skill to the women enables them to generate additional income while the crops grown in the field are yet to be harvested.

The health status of the women is equally paramount and this necessitates health seminar to be organised from time to time during which time basic test of blood pressure, Body Mass Index (BMI) are carried out free.

The complimentary objective is to educate them to form cooperatives for the purpose of obtaining financial assistance and the marketing of products obtained. This ensures the attainment of specific crop value chain.
