Female displaced persons in the North East, produce beautiful caps and sell them as a means of survival.
A non-governmental organization, Girl Child Concerns (GCC), recently organized a sale exhibition for caps produced by the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP), in the North East.
GCC director, Fakhrriyyah Hashim, explained that the reason for the exhibition and sales was to give a chance to IDPs to make a living. She expressed that the exhibition thrives to empower girls and women from devastating situations.
She said: “Their vulnerability makes them overqualified for all aid packages offered by GCC, which thrives to empower girls and women from devastating situations as theirs.”

Hashim noted that GCC started the initiative by collating information about IDPs at various camps. She said GCC members visited Borno state, and decided to start the exhibition with cap-making, a skill largely possessed by most IDPs interviewed at Farm Centre, Bakassi and Dalori camps.
The director further added that the returns from the sales would be distributed to beneficiaries. She said: “Returns from the sales are distributed to the beneficiaries based on their outputs.”
Beautiful caps! What do you think?
