Success Stories from some visits

Our work progresses and we would like to share the highlights of some visits to the Centre with you.

Our efforts to create jobs for the disabled youths received a boost when Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company (SNEPCO) visited us the last week of July and donated to a vehicle that would carry around and market the satchet water. In addition they are organising Exhibition Sales in their office premises for the products of the Centre on the 5th of Sept 2007. This too encourages training and learning for both the trainers and trainees and showcases the value of skill acquisition.

The Self Help Project Officer, Staphanie, from the American Embassy also visited in July and the impression she had has led to her suggesting to the Consulate to organise Exhibition Sales for the work of disabled youths.

The Archbishop of Lagos, Anthony Cardinal Olubumi Okogie, visited on the 3rd of August and promised to highlight our products and activities. He also has approved the building of RAMPS IN SCHOOLS AND CHURCHES and the Forming of Sign Language Clubs in schools under him to facilitate communication between children with and without speech and hearing impairment.

Our joy is in the fact that we have gotten the vehicle for the sale of satchet water, have a place to sell our products and that our advocacy is receiving positive attention all through visits of benefactors.
