On April 18th 2011, post-election violence broke out in five of the communities where the NGO, Fantsuam Foundation operates, resulting in large scale loss of lives, livelihoods and properties. Fantsuam Foundation has significant microfinance activities and provided shelter, food and clothes for over 200 people on the first day of the violence.

Fantsuam Foundation is one of three organisations selected.

The Federal Government of Nigeria, in conjunction with the World Bank, are supporting the development of the Rice Value Chain in Kaduna State.

Currently Nigeria imports more rice than it produces, but Nigeria with the right support could produce more than enough to meet its needs, boosting food security and incomes for Nigerians.

Typically in Nigeria, honey is collected from the wild, and then sold by women in the local markets. It can be contaminated with debris, brownish in colour, and smells and tastes smokey. It is usually sold in recycled bottles into which the honey has been decanted.The honey is used locally as a sweetener and also as an antiseptic.
