Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By Pe­bang Dan­ladi

A church, Givers Em­bassy (GIVE), has launched an ini­tia­tive where wid­ows would re­ceive N20, 000 monthly to train their chil­dren.

Leader the Church, Pas­tor Ed­ward Olu­toke, at the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the Project “Fa­ther a Child Ini­tia­tive” in Abuja said wid­ows who want to ben­e­fit from the scheme must have at of least a child in school.

He said that the ini­tia­tive would make wid­ows re­source­ful cit­i­zens and also re­duce crimes among the youths by as­sist­ing wid­ows to train their chil­dren through dona­tions.

“In ad­di­tion, a new foot­ball club, Givers Shooter Foot­ball Club, was also in­au­gu­rated by the church with play­ers drawn from youths that were taken off the street by the church,” he said.
