ABSTRACT

The services which the government ought to provide to Awgu rural women include: water, free health facilities, employment, empowerment, free education, to mention but a few. The provision of these is not adequate and this compelled the researcher to carryout the study. Both primary and secondary sources of data were used to gather data. The APA style of reference was used. The validity and reliability of the instrument were tested. In distributing the questionnaires, face-to-face method of distribution was used. Tabular method of analysis was used.  The findings of this study are that the social service needs of Awgu women are on health care, potable water, employment etc. The extent to which women in the area benefit from the social welfare services is small; the impact of social welfare services in the area is more of the positive influence than the negative influence. The roles of social workers will be of great importance and that one of the problems militating against the provision of social welfare services in the area is inadequate resources. The researcher recommended that government should endeavour to provide the women with those social services they need, government should expand the services provided for the rural women such as encouraging the women to participate in decision making process, empower them etc, every effort should be made to provide the women with adequate resources such as fund, trained personnel etc.

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1 Background of the Study
Social welfare administration is an administration and management of people that are incapacitated socially and physically in balance or less privilege. What empowerment is planned less privilege? It is a constant process of transformation. Development can also be referred to as a dynamic concept denoting a state of ceaseless charge. Hence, social welfare programmes for rural women is an articulated attempt by government of Nigeria and Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State to look into the various welfare packages provided for women in order to improve their empowerment. According to Echezona (2012) the women in the rural area form a greater part of Nigerian’s population and as such they deserve much more attention in terms of social welfare programmes provision. This means that women have roles to play towards the socio-economic and development of our nation Nigeria may be that is why the United Nations declared (1970-1980) the decade for women.
    The declaration sparked off women into engaging themselves in so many development pogramme themselves in so many empowerment programmes or activities. In Nigeria for instance there have been a lot of woman oriented programmes such as better life for rural women family. Support programme (FSP) family economics advancement programme (FEAP) and child trust fund (CTF) in Enugu state, there are some social welfare programme for rural women handed by ministry of gender to improve women children and youth welfare in the state. Most of the women oriented organizations are to tackle some of the social injustice mated out on women. Recently there are organization founded by her Excellency Hajiya Turai Umar Musa Yaradua the wife of the immediate past president of the federation struggle to combat poverty child and maternal monality including HIV/AIDS in Nigeria, encouraging strong family ties and nation building. She developed maternal newborn and child health (MNCH). This is a strategy to strengthen the health system towards realizing some aspects of the millennium development goals. She has equally channeled her energies towards mobilizing funds for the upgrading of the living standard of Nigerian mother’s children and youths and youth empowerment foundation” (WAYEF) also project towards issues relating to poverty alleviation and eradication and empowerment rural women and the encouragement of “the Nigerian civil education initiative (NGEI). This development promoted the need for this study “the effects of social welfare programmes on empowerment of rural women in Nigeria (A case study of Udi local government area) the researcher therefore want to investigate to see how far all these programmes has facilitated the empowerment programmes of Nigeria women and supply of social welfare programmes.
Also, we have NAPEP, NEEDS, and SEEDS from the past president Umaru Musa Yaradua. The immediate past president Goodluck Jonathan came up with Sure-P, You-win. Then the incumbent president came up with the trending N-Power for the alleviation of unemployment and youth restiveness.

The major problem which prompted the researcher to investigate on this phenomenon is the low level of education. No formal education is established especially on the female children because of the high cost of education and parents hardly afford the cost. Thereby exposing these children to various vices in the society.
    Another problem encountered in the area (Udi local government area) is poor electricity. They still make use of lamps and candles and they still live in poorly ventilated houses. Another problem is inadequate water supply there are pipe borne water and still practice subsistence farming thereby facing serious problems of poverty social decency and economics backwardness for this, the researcher is boarders with these phenomenon and want is know if these social welfare programmes are being provided for the women in Udi Local Government Area of Enugu state or not.
