In harmony with the resounding leadership mantra, “TIME IS NOW,” set forth by the esteemed His Excellency, Barr Caleb Manasseh Mutfwang, the remarkable Honourable Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Hon. Caroline Panglang Dafur, along with her dedicated team of directors, embarked on a momentous inaugural visit to two exceptional havens: the Aisha Manna Orphanage Home and The Young People’s Home.
Imbued with an unwavering commitment to empathy and humanitarian service, Hon. Dafur, a name synonymous with compassion, engaged intimately with staff members, undertook a firsthand, on-site assessment of the living conditions, and closely observed the well-being of the cherished children within these homes. In her own words, “This endeavor epitomizes our core mission, aligned with His Excellency’s visionary pursuit of upliftment for the women and children of Plateau; a pursuit dedicated to their holistic well-being and growth.”
With a tour that encompassed meticulous exploration of the facilities and heartfelt interactions with the children, Hon. Caroline illuminated the pressing need for governmental attention. Eloquent in her observations, she noted, “The road ahead holds the imperative of transformation. Challenges loom, from manpower shortages, security concerns, and medical staffing insufficiencies, to subpar medical facilities, weathered infrastructure, and meager sustenance provisions.” Eager to reshape the narrative, she emphasized, “The Young People’s Home, a dormant repository of potential, must be reinvigorated through purposeful utilization, equipping our young ones with skills that will pave their journey towards meaningful contributions to society upon departure.”
Amidst her endeavors, Hon. Dafur liaised with the esteemed spouse of the executive governor of Plateau State, the venerable Barr. Helen Mutfwang. Their shared commitment to the welfare and progress of women, children, and the vulnerable underscored the alliance’s potency.
With an unwavering resolve, Hon. Dafur vowed to synergize efforts, propelling solutions into action. A swift, emergency-oriented approach was promised to address food and supplies needs. Her words, “Immediate solutions are my pledge, a seamless, proactive supply chain shall ensue,” resonated with a determined commitment.
Underscoring the future trajectory, Hon. Dafur imparted motivation to the tireless staff and custodians of these establishments, reminding them that this administration championed their cause, anchoring welfare and working conditions as pivotal aspirations.
In a testament to her comprehensive vision, Hon. Dafur embarked on a visit to the Multipurpose Women Development Center at Tafawa Belewa Jos. Amidst the facility’s pulse, she envisaged avenues for enhancement, envisioning amplified productivity, superior equipment utilization, and a surge in revenue generation to invigorate her ministry’s prospects.
Addressing the center’s dedicated personnel, Hon. Dafur proclaimed, “Our mission has ignited, and momentum surges. We shall reshape destinies, guiding the course of our women, children, elders, and differently abled towards a brighter horizon. No stone shall remain unturned in our quest to elevate living conditions and empower the backbone of our society – our women.”
