This project is targeted to equip 400 women with sustainable vocational skills. After the skill acquisition training, all beneficiaries will be provided with supplies and equipment to start and run a successful business they were unable to access due to poverty. They will develop attitudes and ethics necessary for their personal business success. Finally, this project will develop and promote these women in rural and under-served communities in Nigeria to become economically stable.
The problem here is poverty and unhealthy living condition. Most women in the rural communities do not have a sustainable means of livelihood, they depend mostly on their husbands whose income can not put food on the table let alone providing necessary basic needs for their families, not to talk of sending their children to school. These women need to be equip with vocational skills to give them financial independence to reduce poverty, increase a healthy living and reduce school drop outs.
Entrepreneurial, Technology and Health Initiative will engage the services of 16 facilitators to train and equip these 400 eligible women in 8 selected vocational skills. At the end of the training, Entrepreneurial, Technology and Health Initiative Initiative will provide each woman with supplies and equipment to start ruining a business. We would monitor the progress of their businesses and provide help when needed for a period of five months to ascertain the impact of the project.
The project will directly impact 400 women but indirectly it will impact over 1000 women because the knowledge gained will easily be replicated. There will be reduction of poverty and improvement of healthy living, the women will be economically and financially independent due to the sustainable vocational skill they were equip with. The rate of school drop out in the communities will reduce as the women will be able to also provide for their families.
