The Delivery Platform DLi 1:3 of the Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation under the Nigerian COVID-19 Action Recovery and Economic Stimulus programme has reiterated its commitment to an extended one-year empowerment strategy of reviving failing businesses which were incapacitated by the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Disclosing this at the Performance and Technical Review Workshop for Livelihood Support Officials held recently at the Women Development Centre, Agege, the Head of State Cares Coordinating Unit, Lagos CARES, Mr. Basit Baruwa stated that the success of the Livelihood Support DLI 1:3, since 2021, will further earn about 50,000 vulnerable Lagos residents more opportunities to become beneficiaries of the programme in coming months.

He said, “The Lagos CARES domesticated from the NG-CARES programme, enabled Lagos State to come fourth in a National rating among the 36 States in the whole Federation. Livelihood Support of the Delivery Platform 1:3 under the Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation has done very well at empowering indigent and vulnerable residents who were monitored to conform with the Social Register of Lagos State, in order to receive financial literacy and operational grants as support for their various businesses”.
