We have included 50 hearing and speech impaired youths in our ICT Training. It is not easy to discover that they are disabled and they suffer in silence. With ICT training, they can chat, send e-mails and communicate with non-disabled and the disabled in the society.
On our 10th year Anniversary of training in Lagos only, 28th of September 2006,the British High Commissioner, His Excellency, Richard Gozney, Commissioned 10 New Compuiters with one Internet Connection Service donated by the High Commission in Nigeria.
We also celebrated the progress/success of one of the beggers we picked on the road in 1993, trained in primary and Secondary school now in Bayero University Kano. One of our beneficiaries in 1998 now works with the First Bank PLC.
Our project is in the rural grassroot and it is difficult to get electricity for our ICT and other works and so we depend more on generator and it is very expensive. We have a line up of income generating projects that can give income to the less privileged; Pure water processing and snailery. We need encouragement to continue to train and put into good use.
