Donations to the Widows


Her Excellency Wife of The Nasarawa State Governor and Founder of Tallafi Foundation, presenting a donation to one out of a hundred widows that were given donations to enable them startup small scale businesses

 It has become a fad of some sort for Nigeria’s first ladies to launch one pet project or another as soon as their husbands assume office as governors. Some get it right while others just pile up activities for reasons that are more cosmetic than impactful.

In Nasarawa State, the wife of Governor Tanko Al-Makura, Hajiya Mairo, has shown that her pet project, Tallafi Foundatio was truly established to provide unlimited opportunities for women and youths through skill acquisition, human capital development and economic empowerment programmes.

Only recently, she displayed an attribute of a typical African woman. Her organisation donated the sum of N1 million to 100 widows drawn from the 13 local government areas in the state. Market women have also received soft loans to boost their businesses. ‘Tallafi’, which means ‘Support’, is a pet project of Mairo Tanko Al-Makura initiated in July, 2011, when the state coordinator and the facilitators in the 13 local g areas were inaugurated to oversee its affairs.
