The Sustainable Development Goal to End Poverty require combined effort and intentional actions such as reaching out to the vulnerable, providing economic empowerment and means of sustainable living.
With 836 million persons still in poverty in Nigeria, a universal social protection system is needed to safeguard all individuals throughout their life cycle with a goal of achieving substantial coverage of the poor and the vulnerable.
In this regards, Kids & Teens Resource Centre (K&TRC), a Non-Governmental Organization with ECOSOC status, whose vision has been: "A secured future where young people are empowered to contribute to the sustainable development of their communities" will be working with Bimmy Brown, an excellent fashion designer who is giving back to the society via *Impact Scheme 1.0 on fashion design* to empower 20 vulnerable girls.
The Impact Scheme is a six - months training for vulnerable girls within Ondo State. Their transportation and feeding cost will be covered throughout the training period and the girls will be assisted financially to set-up their own fashion business where they will be expected to also step-down the knowledge gained by training other girls in their communities. The founder of Bimmybrown fashion line has vast experience in the fashion industry and considering the experience of other young girls with a similar upbringing as hers, the empowerment scheme has been designed to help young disadvantaged girls within Akure and its environ to acquire fashion design skills. The program is designed to help these girls learn both the skill base and the business aspect of fashion design.
The Project Methodology, Approach and Action Steps is as follows:
50 girls will be selected and trained on the basic skills in fashion designing for four weekends at the first stage of the training. After the initial training, 20 girls amongst the girls will be selected based on some pre-stated criteria. The 20 girls will be incubated in the company for four months and they would undergo intensive fashion design and business training. The trainees will also be given the opportunity to intern with the company for two months with commissioned based stipends after their training period. After the training and internship period, the girls will be allowed to choose to start up their businesses, work and start getting paid at Bimmybrown or work in other fashion houses in Nigeria.
Project Duration and Timeline.
The project is scheduled to commence in January 2019. The Initial training will last for one month (Four Weekends). The incubation and intensive training will last for four months and the internship will last for two months.
