WE DELIVER STELLAR PROJECTS
The Village Alive Development Initiative is an action research project of Agricultural and Rural Management Training Institute (ARMTI) set up to support farmers, enhance agricultural production and help improve food security and alleviate poverty. Initially flagged off in 1995 as Village Alive Women Association (VAWA) in the communities of Idofian, Elerinjare, Jimba Oja and Kabba Owode in Kwara State. The introduction of VAWA in 1995 in these communities greatly increased the productivity of community members with improved access to modern farm inputs and extension services, reduction in post-harvest losses as a result of access to credit facilities provided by the project.
In 2011, the ARMTI Management reviewed the project and established it as the “Village Alive Development Initiative (VADI)” to include men, women and youth in the participating communities as beneficiaries in the project. The programme is on-going in five states namely Kwara, Oyo, Benue, Nasarawa and Bauchi.
- Kwara: (Elerinjare, Falokun-oja, Fufu, Apa-ola, Ilota, Jimba-oja, Igbo-owu, Amoyo, Omomere-oja, Kabba-Owode, Koko-Araromi, Osi and Ira).
