The need for ladies and women to enhance their productivity is paramount in today’s dynamic world. By doing so, they not only empower themselves but also contribute significantly to societal progress. Improved productivity equips women with the skills and resources necessary to excel in their chosen fields, whether it be in the workplace, entrepreneurship, or community leadership. It enables them to break through gender-related barriers, achieve economic independence, and inspire the next generation of women. Furthermore, increased productivity among women fosters diversity and innovation, benefiting organizations and societies. Ultimately, encouraging and supporting women in their pursuit of higher productivity is a key driver of gender equality and overall societal advancement. 

Nancy Odejimi, a Grassroot Development Champion who hails from Nigeria, embarked on the “Improve her productivity” project on the 17th of August 2023. Through physical engagement, she executed the project with a profound impact, training 12 ladies in the art of donut and dough baking. During the training, she emphasized the need in today’s fast-paced world, where convenience often trumps nutrition, it becomes a thing of necessity to possess the ability of creating wholesome snacks at home.She taught the participants on how homemade snacks can cater to specific dietary preferences and restrictions, promoting better overall health and well-being as well as serve as a source of financial gain.

Her dedication and expertise shone through as the project unfolded in Bwari Local Government Area, Abuja, Nigeria. The outcome was resoundingly successful, as all 12 participants grasped the valuable skill, underscoring the positive ripple effect of Nancy’s efforts in empowering women within her community.It really gave me the opportunity to teach and reach out to other people who did not have the opportunity to learn this skill due to financial difficulties. Many are eager to join should the opportunity arise again.
