Atafi strategies organization, Atafi strategies initiative

Introduction

This initiative was mainly established to help farms people of Nigeria especially of Jigawa State in such to come up with a kind of empowerment to people especially farms that was been affected by COVID-19. People were suffering hardly because of the effect of COVID-19 on their economic income, their economics has been corrupted. People were in hunger, families can’t sustain their members with 3 meals per day.

Initially, this organization was looking for a possible way to overcome this difficulty that people were facing to save the life of the needy, it was clear everyone know how COVID-19 affected our lives, and we could have to live with this poverty. We set and look at this issue critically with our eagle eye and realized many possible ways to encounter a solution to our problem that we think will make the life of people better.

One among the major reason behind our initiative is (for about 9 people out of the 10 they were not after a type of food to eat but they are after the food take that will prevent them from hunger, that they are not after of classification of food for the health of the body but to take any available been provided) this creates another community problem, it affects younger children more.

Main objective

As it was clear that farms are responsible for the production of foods that we eat but nowadays farming production is malingering due to the effect of COVID-19 to almost all over the world. Farms that we already know in production of foods for many years now they can not afford to produce their usual goods. Foods in the market in the market are increasingly always, life is so costly too. Live in anywhere cities, Urban or village

The objective is to empower the farmers with knowledge of modern methods of agricultural technology via television stations radio and social media channels main objective after educating farms is to encourage them with support (to give them money that will facilitate their mind into farming production again this includes modern agricultural facilities like pumping machines even seed and different kinds of variety of food produce. Regulate the system until we ended hunger from our communities Provision of necessary materials for agricultural productions only recognized farms should.
