Entrepreneurship: No Restrictions for Females

By Comfort Ikpeme | Project Leader

The GPI entrepreneurial skills training differed a bit as we added other skills like: electrical, aluminum, welding in addition to the fashion designing.  The trainees who are mostly out of school young women were excited to have had the opportunity to choose from various skills. The essence of the expansion is to debunk the societal beliefs that, certain skills cannot be done by women thereby bringing the issues gender inequality to play.

GPI believes in gender equality and equity and so, gives opportunity to young women to achieve their full potentials and live healthy lives free of abuse and all forms of abuse and exploitation.

Outcome: within this short period of training, the unit has recorded great successes and achievements as stated below from a fulfilled beneficiary.

Catherine who choosed to learn welding started the training even when many people thought she will not be able to withstand the pressure of work carried out by welders, she was not discouraged but rather got encoragement from GPI. She went through the training and today is a proud welder. She presented what she was able to come up with during the exhibition. She produced a cassava grinding Machine as seen below.

According to Catherine: “I have always wanted to learn welding, but I didn’t have the opportunity and people were always telling me, I am a girl so I should change my mind, but when I saw this opportunity, I grabbed it and knew it was time for me to show my interest”

Today, Catherine is one of the many beneficiaries who got start up equipment to start up their business.

The beneficiaries expressed appreciation to GPI for the rare opportunity provided them.
