Reverend Annin said the key to help these women become independent was to roll out microfinance scheme to support the trained women with financing to enable them become independent and also work on their own after acquiring the necessary training from the centre.

He said part of the land secured would be used for fruit cultivation particularly mangoes because the area was best known for cultivating the crop.

He said a processing plant would be established to help in processing the mangoes into juices.

He said the centre would have a modern health facility with new technology to help cater for HIV and AIDS patients and also offer them with counselling services.
