Inevitably, she relocated to Angwan Kara community, Yola North LGA, where she met with penury and ensuing malnourishment.
Sequel to the vocational skills training of the UNHCR-supported Livelihoods Support project, Sarah was empowered with tailoring skills, after which she was given business start-up capital.
Of her new craft, Sarah testifies, “I never imagined I could eke a living from tailoring. I make new garments and fix torn ones for displaced persons (here) in the camp. I also engage in farming to support myself and my child; our living condition has improved remarkably since the arrival of Caritas Nigeria in (our community).”
