Activities are on to perfect and graduate 45 students in training since June 2009, For the first time we plan to settle them in groups and not as individuals in order to allow for proper monitoring and to help them attracct MIcro-finance aids.
Their choice of where to work after training led to settlement in three States, namely,Kwara,Lagos and Imo respectively.We have contacted the relevant Government Authorities to help in the resettlement. They are National Poverty Alleviation Program (NAPEP) Federal Ministry of Woment Affairs and National Directorate of Employment (NDE) In addition we we are canvassing for a year shop rent and a start up capital to help them start off well. If Micrfinance is involved, there would be a solid arrangement when they will start paying back
Some of them will be re-deployed in the Centre to boost the man power need of the Centre. It is a Miracle in their lives that they can now be busy and have hopes for the future. There is no way this could have been possible with out the kind donations of our Benefactors. We are grateful and will ever remain thankful.
Some of them have not only learnt trade to practice but have also opened their minds and eyes to academic pursuits. One of them have gained admission into a higher Institution and many of them are trying to read and sit for General Certificate of Education (GCE) We will keep in touch with the graduation and the settlement.
