We are able to provide support to at least 20 members of hausa community in attending coffe's and mostly learning clinics and among whom the initial grant did not cover due their seriousness and the initial provision for that at the proposals.

2. Were there any strategies or approaches that you felt were effective in achieving your goals? Please describe these strategies and approaches.

The main strategy we follow is creating an active whatsapp group that keeps the members active. and create a system where by whenever you have a session coming you will inform the team so as for them to provide support to you.

we also create an avenue to motivate the members to be active in the program, by informing them about the happenings in the program. we also help members organized Coffes and Teas in the group.

We also merged community members with certain skills to educate those who seek that skill within the communty.

these are the most effective approache we used.
