More Income Generating Acivities /Graduation Month

Friends of the Disabled has joined the Community of FADAMA Agricultural groups by registering seven groups of different farmers with the Lagos State FADAMA  Agricultural Cooperatives. As a result of this, Lagos State FADAMA Officials and the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives donated to the Centre Fish farm expansion and poultry materials to boost our production of fish and turkey. The Centre has a catfish farm that was started in 2009 through the partnership with MTN Foundation. The input by the government is an advantage to Private Public Partnership. Both farms are managed by youths with disabilities as part of skills acquisition and income generation and as they leave the Centre they can have a farm of their own if given the opportunity.

June 30th has tentatively been chosen for the graduation of 45 in three core skill areas. Twenty-three would graduate from tailoring, nine from welding and thirteen from shoe making. For their settlement, National Directorate of Employment (NDE) and Federal Ministry of Women Affairs are providing some tools and equipment to support the Micro Credit facility provided by MTN Foundation for their post graduation empowerment.
