The SMART MOTHER initiative is a strategic platform initiated by @harvestplus_ng for women and mothers to serve as nutrition advocates, promoting the consumption of nutritious foods and healthy living to reduce the scourge of malnutrition in Nigeria.
Today, I joined members of this ambitious organization at the Eighth Edition of the Nutritious Food Fair (NFF) themed "Improving Resilience through Nutritious Food Systems," to celebrate their progress and be more informed about their exceptional vision for our country.
This program is symbolic for me because it goes beyond educating our women through sensitization programs to also celebrating, promoting, and aiding them in the agricultural industry, particularly for smallholder farming households. An incredible endeavour that represents the objectives of the 3R Government in doing everything to support and protect Imolites across the State.
I felt truly honoured to have been inaugurated as *the Imo State Ambassador for Smart Mothers and shared my gratitude to the entire HarvestPlus team. I also extended my gratitude to the Ministries of Agriculture, Health, Women Affairs and Vulnerable Groups and other development partners present at the event.
I am in awe of how hard everyone worked into making the event a glorious one and I say a big well done. I look forward to seeing remarkable results as HarvestPlus begins work with my office and other relevant agencies in Imo State to help actualize the potential of our agricultural sector.
