Graduation and Recruitment of 50 for 2011-2013


It was a ray history when 45 disabled youths were graduated from our Centre on July 14th 2011 from welding, Shoe Making and Tailoring and Fashion designs. It was the highest number of students to graduate from the Centre at a time so far. MTN Foundation made this happen by their sponsorship from 2009.

National Directorate of Employment (NDE) and Ministryof Women Affairs Abuja took the pains and responsibility to settle them with equipment and tools in their respective trades.We remain grateful to all our sponsors and Partners

The success of the Partnership between FOTD and MTNF gingered further interest that made MTNF ask for the recruitment of another fifty disabled youths to train in the Core trades for the period of 2011-2013.

Recruitment ,screening and Orientation took place from September to the first week of October when classes began.The staff strength has increased and out of twenty-one staff, FOTD is responsible for the payment and mentanance of seven (7) staff. This is because MTNF cannot do it all for us and we cannot achieve our objectives if the number of trainners needed are not provided. A total of eleven disabled skilled youths are working in th Centre. It serves as our employment medium. We need help now more than ever to sruggle it out and sustain those we employed. The highlight of the period was the AWARD of Recognition and Appreciation of hard work by an Organisation ,SPAN, headed by a person with disability.

In the Fish fariming area, we have succeed in BREEDING our own fingerlings instead of depending on buying from people all the time. We have fifteen Tanks now to manage.
