Women have been urged to seek for knowledge as part of efforts to support their immediate family and most especially to contribute to the economic development and growth of the Nigeria economy.
This was the message at the 23rd National Al Mu’minaat Training Forum (ATF) organised by Al-Mu’minaat (The Believing Women) Organization (AMO), Northern zone, with the theme; ‘Agenda for Muslim Ummah’, in Abuja over the weekend.
Speaking on the topic, ‘Knowledge: ‘A Tool For The Ummah’, the guest lecturer, Hajia Aminat Abdus-Sattaar, said a person imbued with proper knowledge will not only take decisions or steps beneficial to herself but to the overall benefits of the human race.
The guest lecturer who is also an assistant director of education, Federal Ministry of Education, Abuja, said a knowledgeable person will always take steps that will add value to humanity.
She stressed the importance of acquisition of knowledge by women from all areas of human endeavour to contribute to national development. Hajia Abdus-Sattaar, who is the pioneer Ameerah of the organization, described women as homemaker, society reformers and life-time teachers whose contribution to a nation cannot be over emphasized. She however called on the stakeholders to give women the necessary support to excel in their duties.
The Ameerah AMO, Northern zone, Barrister Salamatu Abubakar-Akosile, said women are the bedrock of any society who must be empowered to carry out their duties efficiently and diligently. She said the organization as part of efforts to empower the women has come out with Al-Muminat Investment Fund designed as a micro-savings which provides investment opportunity for small savers and entrepreneurs who owes units of investment in a diluted investment portfolio.
She listed other benefits which includes; inculcating thrift saving culture and ability to save for investment, opportunity to participate in big, viable and feasible investment and the provision of halal (lawful) returns on investment for the investors.
“Our mission is to empower Muslim women and build a strong Muslim community through education and welfare projects for self actualization and sustainable national development,” Abubakar-Akosile said.
The 4-day programme featured among others vocational training, Quranic recitation, health talk, guidance and counselling.
