Present participants of the 7th batch of training have expressed satisfaction on their level of knowledge so for on the various skills being taught. Interaction with the participants revealed the following: Jennifer (25) - ’I had a friend who took part in the training last year, I admired her shoes- I could only imagine a girl making shoes for herself, so I was determined to register for the next batch. So far, I have learnt how to make women cooperate shoes, sandals and slippers and I have started making money from the little I have learnt. I could imagine what will happen upon completion of the program’. My plan after completion of the program is to further my learning and open a shoe academy name ‘Essilocherish shoe Academy’. Ability (23) - “My friend Ruth who is a beneficiary of the sewing years ago told me about the programme and I was motivated to take part because of how young she is but already making money for herself and a lot of customers appreciates her styles. So I decided to join Ruth, now though I am not done with the training, I have started making simple styles of skirt for myself. I plan to be serious with my fashion and designing skills just like Ruth, I will raise money to get a sewing machine as I can be independent. Gloria (25) – “I came with the plans to learn more about fashion designing- though I am in the fashion and designing session of the skills, I love the fish farming session. I have developed interest in the business and I hope to start up my pond soon enough before the completion of the programme so after the programme I have what to engage myself in since fingerlings take about 6 months to be ready’. Feedback from resource persons revealed that the beneficiaries are enthusiastic about the training, willing to learn and are focused.
