Fulani cow herdsmen play a very vital role in the economic growth of our nation especially in the area of beef production and aside from that, they are member of our society who usually settle in rural areas because of lush green vegetation of such areas for their livestocks. And because of this lifestyle, they tend to inadequately lack a lot social amenities enjoyed in most urban areas.”
“That is why the Foundation sees ur deemed fit for assist the Fulani communities by digging wells for their communities which help them from having easily clean accessible water for their day to day livelihood and livestocks. Instead of rely on stagnant rivers and some streams as most of them do for their water supply which can easily be contaminated and spread all sort of water borne diseases.”
