Earlier, the President General Nzuko Arochukwu Women Wing Worldwide, Ezinne Chibuzo Onyekwere, said that within a short period of their inauguration, they have been able to sink borehole, renovate the skills acquisition centre, pay school fees for indigent people, distribution of education materials to primary schools in Arochukwu and lots more.

 

However, “these achievements are not without challenges,” she said. Onyekwere therefore called for government and individual support in the area of providing funds, catering and confectionery equipment, standard-sized generators, sewing machines and to sponsor students for training among others.
