Project Report | Sep 19, 2020
Young Women and Economic Skills

By Comfort Ikpeme | Project Leader

A review meeting was held with beneficiaries of the entrepreneurship training in the last week of August 2020 after the easing of the lockdown due to COVID-19 to find out how they were able to utilize the skills acquired effectively during the lockdown and how they were to avoid been exploited.

Interacting with the young women who are undergoing training at the Girls’ Power Initiative (GPI) training centre during a review meeting recorded the following as success stories:

  • from the skills I acquired before the covid-19 lockdown, I have been able to do few jobs and used the money to take care of myself and my child” – Esther
  • “I can now sew, as I was able to sew a gown for a client who did her traditional marriage, that alone announced me in my community” – Mrs. Jane
  • “though I couldn’t sew much to make enough money, but I was able to train 3 other girls in my community who didn’t have the opportunity to be part of the training I am attending. I am happy that, I have been able to help other young girls like me” – Mary
  • “I am happy that, I took on this opportunity. My mates who are teachers in my community, were not paid all through the period of the covid-19 lockdown, but that was not my case as I was sewing and making my little money. The little money helped me contribute to feeding in the home instead of going to beg, my guardian was happy with me” – veronica

GPI during the lockdown used the media to send out information to her beneficiaries on the need to stay safe and avoid be exploited rather make good use of their time and skills.

These beneficiaries are to serve as motivators to the upcoming trainees.
