Challenge

The recurring crises in Nigeria has caused many deaths of breadwinners in families. This has affected their welfare. With no houses, poor feeding and lack of opportunity for education for their children. The male children are left roaming the streets begging for means of survival while the female child becomes vulnerable for depraved men who see them as sex tools. All these have minimized their confidence and capacity to engage in productive activities to support themselves.

Solution

This project will provide opportunity for self realization and capacity to be productive. This can be accomplished through the enlightenment of the beneficiaries on self improvement and discovery of their capacities to be self reliant. By this training, we hope to produce techpreneurs in the form of Computer Technicians, Software Developers, Network Administrators and Media Personnel.

Long-Term Impact

Beneficiaries would have rediscovered themselves to the extent that they would be more productive and self reliant. Consequently, they would be able to earn from their entrepreneurial effort. Upon self rediscovery and capacity to develop resources for themselves, they would become examples to others in similar condition.
