Sarah Philip sold grain in Madagali town of Adamawa State, where she lived with her husband. Life dealt her a bad hand when insurgency hit her community, claiming the life of her husband and her livelihood.

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 projectSarah 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).”
